You will get wet!! The real question is will you get soaked. Ponchos may help but my experience has not stopped getting wet totally. You never know if you are in the “lucky” seat or not.
This is at Animal Kingdom and I do love this ride, wet or not! It is fun and thrilling. It is also educational if you pay attention.
You must be 38″ tall to ride this ride. They do have lockers to put your valuables in, first come first serve basis. NOTE- Last month when I was there I found they have taken away the hard plastic cover in the center-this was a great place to store your stuff-no more.
You may get wet, or even soaked, but this is a fun ride for everyone!!
