River Rides

Surrounding The Tower of Neptune, The Tower of Poseidon and Trident Tower is a complex river ride system with waves pushing inner tube and lifejacket wearing riders through the lush landscape, as they navigate around the park.

The Torrent

The Torrent is a wave river of 700 metres. A wave generator simulates a water surge that is capable of swells reaching more than 1 metre high at more than 94,000 litres per minute that propel riders in their inner tubes on the crests of the waves, along the course of the river.

River Rapids

The Rapids is a 1.6-kilometre river adventure, where 15 million litres of water is used to propel inner-tube riders through the high intensity rapids, wave surges and waterfalls. Riders navigate the waterpark via The Rapids, as it passes by all of the major slides throughout Aquaventure, taking an impressive 45 minutes to circumnavigate the park. A variety of large pools with spacious sun decks are available along The Rapids, allowing guests to easily dip-in and out of the water at their leisure

Trident’s River/Raging Rapids

Guests can experience what it feels like to be raging through a number of roaring water elements, from powerful waves, high-pressure bubbles and currents to tempt the most daring youngsters and adults alike.
