Looks very cool, but I think the renderings exaggerate the drop angle. Looks like 70 degree drop in that picture.

Looks like an awesome attraction but I agree that the drop looks ridiculously steep in that image, especially for what's being called a family ride. I also love the records they come up with for these new rides - this time "tallest drop on a raft ride in the western hemisphere". This beats out the current record holder by 9 feet (Infinity Falls at SeaWorld Orlando, which just opened in October of last year).

Yeah they did say what was it an 8 story drop? The angle looks awesome in the pic but there is no way its that steep lol Did anyone see who is the manufacture of MRF? I wonder if this is another Intamin like Infinity Falls.

This picture on the park's website gives a much better idea of what the drop will actually look like.

That really gives me the White Water Landing vibes at CP or I can never remember the name of RFYLCB when it was first opened and before Paramount ruined it for me. lol

Great backstory, but I love how they keep saying that “record” lol. As far as that picture, it looks like Snake River Falls (or Congo Falls) but as a rapids ride and with an elevator lift... or is there more to the ride’s layout that we are not seeing?

There's more than what can be seen in that picture. The entire ride is supposed to last about 5 1/2 minutes and there's a "mine shaft" in there somewhere as well.

I also had to laugh that they are adding a ride with Mystic in the name in their new area... Rivertown. :lol:

I wonder where they got the idea! LOL!
