    Wet is always good in hot weather, but I hate sloshing around while I dry out.

    Love that ride!!! Did it on a cold January morning, for some reason I was the only rider :tongue:. My DW and DD opted out and they SOAKED me with the spraying elephants! They had some industrial heater/dryers there to help out in the winter.

    My DW and I cracked up on it one time.

    We got on the raft and there was this very beautiful, elegant woman who also got on our raft. You know the type, perfect makeup, perfectly coiffed, Ralph Lauren designer everything. She obviously had never been on this attraction before.

    So, off we go. Shortly after you get going, there's that one place where there's a rather significant fountain in the middle of the river that you can feel beat the bottom of the raft as you pass over it. Of course, depending on where you are on the raft also determines how badly you'll get hit as the fountain passes out from under the raft.

    You know what's coming. Don't you. As we passed over the fountain, her position in the raft had just rotated so that the fountain was perfectly positioned right behind her as we passed. Of course, being in that position is precisely like taking a shower with your clothes on. Needless to say, she looked like a drowned rat.

    The remainder of the ride was spent with everyone else on the raft in near hysterics and the poor woman looking like she had taken a dip in a pool.
    All that hairspray and makeup for nought.

    Next time, she'll know better! I hope.

    Tom (... but it sure was worth a laugh or six!)

    One of life's little lessons. Lesson learned!
