Originally dubbed Tiger River Rapids
the name was changed because there were no tigers to be seen. Kali River Rapids is a
little different because it takes you up a lift hill and sends you down a fairly
large drop. This whitewater adventure starts off peacefully,
drifing through through a bamboo tunnel surrounded by mist, and past the
ruins of an ancient shrine. However, in typical Disney fashion, this
ride's story take a dramatic turn. Someone here is up to no good,
logging and burning trees, ravaging the rainforest. The raft speeds up
and the drama unfolds as it approaches a tangled bunch of burning logs,
right in your path! The only way out is down, and this hill provides a
huge splash at the end.
You will get wet! Many guests choose to wear ponchos on this ride, and
it's a good way to avoid getting soaked. Lockers are available for free (up
to 2 hours) so you can stash your belongings safely. The storage compartment
that used to be in the middle of the rafts has been removed, and guests are
now required to wear shoes on this ride, so plan accordingly.
Guests must be 38 inches or taller ride this attraction.
