Popeye & Bluto's Bilge-Rat Barges, Islands of Adventure

Surprisingly steep ride with churning, side-to-side action and several opportunities for overhead waterings. Nice velocity in flat stretches.<br>
<br>
<b>Vessel:</b> 12-seat round raft. (Height requirement: 42 inches)<br>
<br>
<b>Splashdown lowdown:</b> Long lift through Bluto's boat wash gives time to debate which rider will get wettest. It's a bit futile.<br>
<br>
<b>Saturation point:</b> Expect a thorough soaking.<br>
<br>
<b>NEXT:</b> Dudley Do-Right's Ripsaw Falls, Universal Orlando<br>

Splashdown lowdown: Long lift through Bluto's boat wash gives time to debate which rider will get wettest. It's a bit futile.
