Snake River Falls is a shoot-the-chutes water boat attraction designed by Arrow Dynamics located at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. The attraction is based on a Wood Packing Co. Snake River falls is one of three water rides at Cedar Point, the other two being Thunder Canyon and Shoot the Rapids.

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.[1] 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.
