2019 Great ADVENTure Calendar- Day 10- Update Congo Rapids

Recommended Posts

As one of the park's only remaining water rides, and as the oldest rapids ride still operating in the world, it would be great to see the park make some improvements to Congo Rapids, and maybe bring back the original Roaring Rapids name!

With Jersey Devil opening up right beside it, this is the PERFECT time to revitalize Congo Rapids! I think a refurb of the rockwork- at least paint would be nice. I would also reintroduce the fountains that have been turned off and, if we want to get greedy, add a waterfall that goes straight down over the entire boat so everyone is guaranteed to get wet!

Nothing worse than getting off a Wet water ride Dry.

 

Maybe retheme it to Penguin's Blizzard River? If you've been on the former SFKK one, I got drenched in 03.

I kind of want that too, but then I feel Nitro would get rethemed to Catwoman. Wonder Woman would be cool too, just retheme Wonder Woman to Two-Face...like why have they not reused the name "Two-Face: the Flip Side"?

RES is the company behind Mystic River Falls at Silver Dollar City.  I would like to see them do a retrofit/redesign of the rapids without doing a full teardown.

How About Garner Holt who redid Bigfoot Rapids at Knott's?

An update to this ride could probably be done fairly inexpensively, and if they gave it a complete overhaul it would still be marketable.
