  • Ride Discussion: Kali River Rapids

    For our next ride discussion lets discuss Kali River Rapids. Some people find it way underwhelming, some love that you get soaked, while others hate that you get so soaked and there is almost no way to come off dry.
    The ride has a massive queue line that is more often no needed than needed, and it has great themeing all around.

    So how do you like it?

    I think it is one of the highlights of Disney's Animal Kingdom and now, more than ever, it complements Asia and Expedition Everest very well.

    It is very well themed, and it is easy to dry in DAK's designed humidity and heat, so it is very easy to enjoy the entire experience. It is a little short, but I would definitely ride it again.

      Hopefully I'll be able to give KRR a chance when I'm at AK in October. The wife and I were on a tight schedule and decided to turns on EE was more important than KRR but she wants to put it on our must see list for the next trip.

        if you do wear a swim suit or plan on bringing a change of clothes. because you will get wet. there is no way of avoiding it. the question is simply how wet you will get.

          It is very refreshing after a hot day at DAK to get drenched in Indian water!

            It's a bit of a love-hate relationship. I love these kinds of rides. I just hate thoughtless eco-friendly messages based on mass hysteria being crammed down my throat while I'm trying to enjoy a ride.

              I love this ride. Has to be one of my favorite at DAK ( ihaven't been on Everest yet). It cools you off in the high humidity, it is fun, and it lasts more than 10 seconds.

                My biggest regret when I took my family to WDW last summer, is that we never got around to going on KRR on the day we were at AK.

                How does it compare to DCA's Grizzly River Rapids?

                  Sorry guys rode it with my family and by the time we were ready for the ride to get good... it was over! Too short! Underwhelming, the massive que leads you to believe this ride is going to be a bit more but I will say that it now does compliment Asia and EE (expedition everest) very well.

                    It is our family's favorite ride at Animal Kingdom during our summer trips. I agree that is is too short. Real fun ride though. Her is wife and daughter headed down Kali River Rapids...

                      I rode this ride once and it was enough for me. It's not that I don't enjoy water rides, it's just that river rapid rides like this one are at so many parks and the one at AK doesn't impress me at all. Nice theming in the queue but this is not supposed to be the line ride. A little creativity please!

                        GRR is much better. I don't really like Kali and when the line is long and I don't get a fastpass, I won't ride it. It's a very short ride and like someone else said, you get the eco-message slammed down your throat. However, if it's a hot day and you want to get wet, Kali will definitely deliver.

                          My biggest grip is I don't like getting wet. One I am dressed to look good dry, I'll be blunt. Two, I don't care how hot it is, you get wet in Florida's humidity you stay pretty wet. Not a fan of being wet.

                          That being said...I like the queue though I've never seen it full. The ride & queue are themed to the hilt, which is great! I don't mind the "save the forest" message. I think the ride is fun on its own. I agree it is short...but I don't want to spend more time on it and risk getting wetter, so I guess I like the length.

                            It seems to get you wetter now. Last time I got on the entire group got DRENCHED.

                              Never before have I felt so compelled to burn the rain forests.
