Sounds like it will be big! I hope it's as much fun as Teamboat Springs. That's our family favorite.

Wonder if you can ride as a solo? All the other raft style rides are two or more riders. This is why I haven't been going to the water parks.

1/09 - BWV
9/05; 2/07; 12/07; 9/08; 9/09; 9/10; 9/11; 12/13 - PC
5/15 - POR
Disneyland: 12/15 - Paradise Pier Hotel
Next up: 11/29 - 12/6 PC
Probably not. They even pair up groups of 2 and 3 together for these large raft rides. The rafts need to be balanced.
