See details and photos for other Florida water parks in our water park guide.
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.
Vessel: 12-seat round raft. (Height requirement: 42 inches)
Splashdown lowdown: Long lift through Bluto's boat wash gives time to debate which rider will get wettest. It's a bit futile.
Saturation point: Expect a thorough soaking.
NEXT: Dudley Do-Right's Ripsaw Falls, Universal Orlando
