Day 24 - 2018: Give Congo Rapids a Major Overhaul

Recommended Posts

Great Adventure's rapids ride has not seen any enhancements since it first opened in the early '80s.  As the world's oldest continually operating rapids ride, the park should invest in revitalizing the attraction with the addition of geysers, sprayers, banks of mist, waterfalls, and a tunnel to bring new life to this staple of the park.  Adding some themed props and going retro by reintroducing the Roaring Rapids name would be a welcomed update to the park's ride lineup.

With the retheme and improvements to Knott's rapids ride this year, maybe we could see this become an industry trend, updating and improving these rides to make them better.

Any improvements to the ride would be great. It feels like most of the ride you are just moving along the ride course without much of anything to see and depending the seat, could end up almost dry.  I like the idea of a tunnel.

Unfortunately, the ride is very unpredictable in the fact that you might not get wet at all.  A “giant” whirlpool, geysers and sprays would be very welcome.  The ride course right now is pointless most of the time.  Theming or “Interactive” elements would help make the ride enjoyable.

First step would be removing the poison ivy that has overgrown parts of the ride.

This might be annoying to some, But how about retheme it to Penguin’s Blizzard River with a bunch of additional effects?

 

If any of you went on Penguin’s at SFKK, You’ll know what I’m talking about.

The cheapest retheme would be to remame Rouring Rapids to the Batman villianess, Poison Ivy. Especially since there is plenty of her namesake's plant growing wild all over, lol.
