Fodor's Expert Review Dudley Do-Right's Ripsaw Falls

Islands of Adventure Amusement Park/Water Park

In the 1960s, Dudley Do-Right was recognized as the well-intentioned (but considerably dim) Canadian Mountie who somehow managed to always save the damsel and "get his man" (that is, foil the villain). But you don't need to be familiar with this character to enjoy this "waterlogged" attraction. The twisting, up-and-down flume ride through the Canadian Rockies begins with your mission to help Dudley rescue Nell, his belle, from the evil, conniving Snidely Whiplash. Tucked inside a hollow log, you'll drift gently down the stream before dropping through the rooftop of a ramshackle dynamite shack.

For people with disabilities: Guests using wheelchairs must transfer to a ride vehicle. Use Express Pass, and come in late afternoon, when you're hot as can be, or at day's end, when you're ready to head back to your car. Expect to get completely soaked.
