    Cool off with this ride.
    This is inside Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom Park. It is in the Asia section near the back of the park. This is the first time that we have been on this ride since COVID restrictions began. They handle the crowds very well and our wait time was about 10 minutes. In fact it took longer to walk up to the ride than the wait that we had for the ride. If you have to wait, there are some very interesting items along the various building that you walk through to get there. It is a seated ride in a circular boat where they typically fit 2 groups facing each other. You will probably get a little wet but the Florida heat should dry you off pretty quickly. Overall, a very refreshing ride to go on if you visit the park

    Cooling on a hot day
    A really fun ride. It was a hot day and this was a nice way to cool down. We had LL's and we walked straight on. The guys loading the rafts are not as slick as they could be. This left empty seats and delays for those in line. The ride itself is good fun. Small drops and you get wet. Very wet.

    Great for the whole family
    Prepare to get... a little wet. Lol! This is a classic Animal Kingdom ride. You cannot go to this park without riding it. Now, like I mentioned before, expect to get wet. While you are rafting down the Kali River, water will be splashed from all directions. Some people like to use ponchos. I prefer not to. It's is really great for the whole family.

This is a ride that Disney could certainly update. It’s relatively short, simple, and people really don’t get wet. Honestly, I’m surprised they haven’t tried to add a movie tie-in. While it’s great for a hot day, any semblance of a long line should have you looking at the other attractions.

Kali River Rapids is definitely a must in the state of FL on a hot day. Revolving as it goes, it’s humorous to figure out which way it will turn for soaking! Lots of laughs and fun for the whole family!

Enjoyed the ride, although it went down twice while were in line. Please enforce the shirt on rule. There were several men riding shirtless. Not a pleasant sight looking across the raft to see a fat hairy belly and chest! Disgusting.

Ponchos optional for this one. They do have complimentary lockers for use nearby if you have a bag or electronics you want to keep from getting wet. Some sort of covering is required for your feet, so don't leave your shoes or flip flops in the locker! This is a big round raft that goes through watery twists and turns. This is not the wettest water ride ever, but there is a least a passing chance you will get soaked depending on how the tube rotates. You will get at least a little wet on this one. This is fun for the family! Fast pass recommended! Check out my other reviews of Disney Attractions and give me a helpful vote if you find them useful!

Kali is the Hindu God of death, time, and doomsday. Kind of an odd choice for a Disney ride, but the theme of the ride is about deforestation and the dangers that it may have for mankind - so in a way appropriate I guess? One thing for sure is that it will "doom" your day with wet pants down to your nitty grittys, if you don't prepare for it! On a hot day it doesn't matter as it can be refreshing and you dry quickly, otherwise wear a poncho! This isn't the wettest rapids ride we've ridden, but it does a pretty good job of it. Disney of course does a great job with the ride detail, with burning wood smells for example in a deforestation area. We actually love spraying passengers on the ride with the water jets at the exit end of the ride the most. Most people riding this ride for the first time never know what's coming when it hits them. We howl with laughter!

Rode the river rapids on a recent trip to AK. For some reason, the ride didn't open until 10am, at which time there was already a decent sized line waiting at the entrance. We got in line as they were letting people in, and waited about 15 min total. Overall, we were surprised how short the ride was. We went up a ramp, got a little wet, went through some turns, and we were done. It was fine, but definitely less than we were expecting. Worth a ride, but not if you have to wait. Wouldn't recommend using a FP either with better options in the park.

Its a good ride but if the line is long you may skip it . The thrill level is not that much. Kids will enjoy it more than adults. Also if you are planning to go sea world then just skip it because the same kind of ride (Infinity falls) with more thrill level is there as well.

Very nice experience and my wife that hates roller coasters really enjoyed the experience!

So the ride is very pleasant and is probably good for persons that do not enjoy intense experiences!!! However everyone is different!

I would warn you that you get very wet! So bring a rain jacket and wear clothes that dry quickly!!!

Also the wait is deceptively long because they tend to hold the line for all the fast pass holders!!! This is irritating so maybe opt for the fast pass!!!

Enjoy and get wet!!!!

Was in disbelief that the ride had actually ended, definitely wouldn’t waste your time using a fast pass for it.

The ride is very short and not very thrilling, even the small children on the raft didn’t seem entertained, also doesn’t get you very wet for being a water based ride so was unsure of its purpose.

This is an awesome ride. The chances of you getting soaked is very high. The ride it's self is pretty short, but once you get to the rapids it is really thrilling. We love this ride & always do it every time we are at Animal Kingdom
