Anyone else watch the POV of the new rapids ride at Silver Dollar City? I'm not sure what to make of it. The boats seem to pitch quite a bit in the water, but not much splash comes over the sides. It has a crazy rotating elevator lift and a very long drop.

I have not been on tons of rapids rides, but I thought many use outside water elements (waterfalls, water spouts) to get riders wet?

It looks pretty crazy! Not least because, as a Brit, since the death at Drayton Manor we've seen these rides closed or neutered to the point where it's basically a raft in a channel (no waterfalls, wave machines, fountains etc).

Nothing to see here. Move along.

It looks like it will be much wetter with a couple thousands pounds of bodies loaded in those boats.

This looks like it could beat out Popeye & Bluto at Islands of Adventure for wettest (and most fun) rapids ride.

The pace of the rafts picks up so much at times that it almost seems like the video has gone into fast-forward.

Looks like a lot of fun, and I now remember seeing some concept art for this awhile back; to be honest I had totally forgotten about it until now. It would appear they crammed an amazing amount of ride into a relatively small footprint.
