    Thats the one thanks. Is it wheelchair friendly or what you not recommend it for Beth. She hates thrill rides and much prefers rides like IASW.

    I'm not sure Michelle - as far as i remember they are a bit like the cars on Kilimanjaro Safaris at AK but they probably have wheel chair accessible one. It is a bit bumpy and it goes fairly fast when it turns into the water ride (the car attaches itself to a raft). I wouldn't really call it a thrill ride though although it is not as tame as IASW. I'm sure there are some viewing areas so you could check it out before hand.

    Sorry to be vague but we haven't been to BG since 2005.

    Michelle we have taken Ben on this and he enjoyed it, it is quite a rough ride but we manged to keep him upright seated between us at the back of the jeep. You'd need to transfer Beth fom her chair to the vehicle but they do allow you to board at the exit. They have a system where you can have a ticket with a time on to return rather than wait in line. It was not an easy transfer. We've only done it once and luckily the water part of the ride was working, it often isn't and if it's not we wouldn't consider it worth the effort of the wait or the transfer.

    Thanks Lynn. I would not think Beth would like it unless she gets over her fear she has developed over the last three years.
