Toon Lagoon! Well this is an area dominated by water rides I think that there is a clue in the name, another clue would be the signs that are dotted around the area saying ' You WILL get Wet! ! '

When you venture into the Toon Lagoon area you will recognise the characters from the cartoons we all used to see on the TV when we was kids in the 60' s 70' s and 80' s , most popular of these would be Popeye and Olive Oil

The first ride that you will come across once you enter Toon Lagoon is Dudley Do Right Ripsaw Falls, this in essence is a log flume ride but it is much much more than a simple log flume, for instance it is one of the very steepest water drops ever built and as a result it is very fast as it drops 75 feet below anexploding dynamite shack

There are lots of visual jokes and puns as you climb your way up the Canadian mountain which is the setting for this ride, there are a number of smaller drops within the ride and a number of scary moment within the mountain when your senses are increased by the darkness within and if you hadn' t yet realised you WILL get wet

Next is the Me Ship The Olive is ship with 3 levels of interactive play for kids of all ages this gives you a bit of a break before you brave the Bilge Rat Barges, there are passageways to crawl through, slides to go down, cargo nets to climb, horns to toot, a bell to ring etc but Best of all, on the second deck there are water cannons which you can use to squirt unsuspecting passengers of Popeye & Bluto' s Bilge Rat Barges and get them very thoroughly wet

After visiting the Me ship the Olive is the Popeye & Bluto' s Bilge Rat Barges, this is a great white water raft ride, you get a clue your approaching by everyone either taking off their waterproof poncho or nipping into the nearby toilet to try and dry their wet clothes

When you climb aboard your raft you will need to put anything you don' t want to get wet in the centre storage area and put the water proof cover on , many of the seats will be wet this is a clue ' You will get Wet'

The ride is really great fun as you twist and turn in the fierce white water and watch out for the huge octopus and the water guns from visitors on the Me Ship the Olive, this is one of the best rides in the park without doubt

But remember wear clothes that will dry quickly or take a towel and a waterproof because as it says ' Everyone will get Wet on this Ride! ! ! !
