    I really enjoyed the one at Kennywood but I hear that Popeye and Bluto's at IOA is pretty cool. I don't ride them much b/c I hate to get soaking wet.
    Working here is like an amusement park! There's excitement! There's challenge...and it will often make you sick.

    Personally, not only do I not like to get wet, but I find the waterfalls can be pretty painful, at least they give me a headache. Thunder Canyon at CP can be nice and peaceful, and it's great to be on the deck overlooking the canyon and watch everyone get soaked -- especially those who you know have never been on the ride before based on their reactions. I'd heard about Tasmanian River Rapids at Wild Adventures, and can't wait to go to that one (goes underwater, or through a tunnel at least), hopefully soon!

    I'm not too crazy about river rapids because I hate getting soaking wet, but Popeye and Bluto at IOA blew every single other ride out of the water! I never thought that theming could make or break a ride, and boy was I wrong! This ride rocks! The ride is good itself, but the theming totally blew me away! There was a story happening as we were on the ride! I loved it! I don't think I can look at another water ride the same for the rest of my life!

    Popeye and Bluto's. It also has good themeing.

    I like Tiger Rapids Run at the Animal Kingdom at WDW, the theming was great and the 2 elephants at the end that squirt you are pretty cool

    Thumbs up

    My favorite is DCA's Grizzly River Run, although Popeye and Bluto's is a close second.

    Definitely Popeye and Bluto's. The only other one that I've ever been on is Congo River Rapids at SFGADV., which scared me to death when I was 4 or 5...I haven't been on since, partially because I haven't seen it open that much until this year, when I'm too busy riding Nitro

    Bluto's Bilge Barges is awsome...the themeing is great and you get soaked on it. The cool thing, something I had not seen before, is that there is a storage compartment in the center of the craft to put things you don't want to get wet!
    I am so excited about RCT2...can hardly wait!
