Rattlesnake Rapids is a river rapid ride located in the back of Pioneer Village.
Rattlesnake Rapids is a river rapid ride where riders board rafts and float down a mock river encountering rapids, waves, and waterfalls designed to get the rider wet and simulate white-water rafting. Ride vehicles consist of yellow, circular rafts that can hold up to nine riders at a time. The rafts are made of fiberglass with a rubber ring that surrounds the raft to create buoyancy and provide a bumper as the raft encounters other rafts or obstacles throughout the ride. The station of Rattlesnake Rapids is at the highest point of the ride. Riders load and unload using a circular platform that is constantly moving and then enter the river, which flows downhill to large lift that brings the rafts back to the station.
