2022 Great ADVENTure Calendar- Day 6- Re-Introduce Congo Rapids With New Elements


Recommended Posts

(Roaring) Cong Rapids is only one of two water rides left in the park and it has seen better days. 

 

I think they should restore the original name, add some geysers and other effects that can get people wet again. It could be a really fun ride again with some TLC.

The thing is they had to "tame" the rapids down over the years after several other parks had accidents, but that should just mean they can add more waterfalls and geysers to make up for the lack of opportunities to get wet. Plus, those kinds of things can be turned on for hot days and turned off for cooler ones.

I think the majority of the incidences involved boats bumping together and getting hooked on each other which they resolved by spacing them further apart.  
 

The boats were also getting caught on the rocks which they fixed by putting in the wooden walls to keep them in the river trough.  
 

If anything, the rougher waters and waterfall caused people to undo their seatbelts and move about the boat to avoid the water.

Nothing that putting back the "You Ride Hard and Come Out Wet!" sign couldn't fix!🤣

Dorney sometimes did that for Thunder Canyon early in the season. It made the ride much more enjoyable since most people don’t want to get completely soaked in 70 degree weather.
