This four-minute family ride is a soaker and lots of fun on a hot summer day. Start off in a twisty subterranean tunnel then float lazily along before hitting the rapids. Oh, you may get surprised (and wet!) by a few geysers. Then hold on tight! Your boat will take a thrilling rush through Boulder Canyon, a flooded Western town. Your drenching journey will end by meandering through the town’s saloon – watch out for the water curtain! And remember, whoever doesn’t want to get wet the most is somehow always the one to take the biggest splash! Check out these stories, videos and photos about Raging Rapids here on our HoliBlog.
Don’t ignore the signs that say “You Will Get Wet!” Because you most certainly will on this white-water raft ride!
