When opened, Snake River Falls was the tallest, fastest and steepest water ride in the world. Guests board flat bottom, 20-passenger boats that advance directly onto the lift hill. Upon reaching the top of the hill, the boats make a u-turn to the left then making a 80 feet, 40 mph splashdown to the bottom. There is a bridge at the bottom of the hill that when a boat comes down a hill, you will get splashed heavily. The ride has become more popular in recent years with Skyhawk opening in 2006, right next to it.
