Afternoon Thrill Seekers,

We are bang in the middle of a UK heatwave, to say its Scorchio is an understatement. We’re not complaining, I promise, but it did get us thinking which rides in Florida would be the best to cool down in.

We’ve selected 2 rides from Disney, SeaWorld and Universal, have a look and see if you agree?

Disney’s Splash Mountain

This very popular flume ride can be found at Disney’s Magic Kingdom and is perfect for a bi of a cool down.

Based around the story of Brer Rabbit, this ride starts of gentle enough but has a few surprises to help you cool down. Expect to get wet!

Disney’s Kali River Rapids

A river raft adventure guaranteed to get you wet! Found at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Kali River Rapids is an adventurous river raft ride for big kids, teens and adults that journeys through the rainforest on the churning Chakranadi River.

If you somehow managed to stay dry the 30 foot waterfall drop will soon see to that… Change of clothes required 🙂

SeaWorld’s Manta

Although you don’t really get soaked on this one I did get sprayed and there’s nothing better to cool you down than the wind rushing through your hair as you stare at the floor, 140ft in the air, and travelling at speeds of up to 50mph.


Universal’s Dudley Do-Rights Ripsaw Falls

Will Dudley Do-Right and his faithful horse, Horse, reach Nell in time to save the day? Will you be able to keep a straight face as you encounter the hilarious puns and visual jokes that mark your journey? Will you stay dry when you experience the incredibly steep plummet down Ripsaw Falls? Hop in your log for the watery conclusion of this sidesplitting flume ride to find out!

Universal’s Popeye and Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges

Located in Islands of Adventure, get ready to splash and churn your way through the waterways of Sweet Haven you’ll sail through a variety of amusing scenes and different ways to get you wet, including a fully-operational barge wash and an Octopus Grotto where you’ll encounter an 18-foot tall, 14-foot wide octopus with 10-foot long tentacles. Don’t be surprised if you’re completely soaked when it’s all over!

This ride still holds my person record for a complete soaking… you will get wet…
