Next time just take a nice slow tour of the Dells. It might be just as fast. While the quick turns and fast stops were fun the actual speed part of the trip was dull. I think the "Speed" was maybe 30 mph tops.

What a blast - first experience at something like this. Power stops and spins at 45 mph, some of which occurred in river channels no more than 70 feet wide I'd guess. I would recommend going during temperatures above 75 as YOU WILL GET WET.

The ride was awesome! If you have Tweens or older this is a MUST! Speed, wetness, and history lesson in an action packed fun hour.
