Kali River Rapids Review

Asia's thrilling water adventure ride mixes the fun of a rafting experience with a solemn message to save pristine lands and animal habitats that are threatened by development. Aboard a round raft that seats 12, you run the Chakranadi River. After passing through a huge bamboo tunnel filled with jasmine-scented mist, your raft climbs 40 feet upriver, lurches and spins through sharp twists and turns, and then approaches an immense waterfall, which curtains a giant carved tiger face. Past rain forests and temple ruins, you find yourself face-to-face with the denuded slope of a logged-out woodland burning out of control. There are many more thrills, but why spill the beans?

You will get wet and you may get soaked. Unless you want to wring out your clothing in the nearest restroom afterward, bring a poncho. Better yet, bring a change of clothing in a plastic bag. The ride-height minimum is 38 inches. If you are pregnant or have heart, back, neck, or motion-sickness problems, sit this one out. For people with disabilities: Guests using wheelchairs must transfer to a ride raft. No service animals. Use Fastpass, or come during the parade.

    Kali River Rapids Review

    You WILL get wet. There's a 95% chance you'll get SOAKED!

    The Kali River Rapids is much wetter than it's better known Magic Kingdom counterpart, Splash Mountain.

    Like Asia's other ride, Expedition Everest, this ride simulates a expedition down the fictious Kali River. Geysers, a waterfall that you flow under, and a 30 foot drop ensure that you WILL get SOAKED, but the other half of your raft stays dry!
