Hop aboard a 10-passenger boat that will take you on a 2,100-foot-long adventure through wooded areas and around an illegal brewing still. Get ready to climb to new heights as your boat climbs the first hill at 85-feet in the air before dropping at a 45-degree angle. The second hill is only 49-feet- tall, but ends with water rapids and rock work. The ride is more than a daring adventure—it's also the perfect way to cool off on a hot summer's day.

The ride lasts three minutes, and can accommodate up to 1,200 passengers per hour. While at the park, you can also take a ride on Mantis, one of the world's tallest and fastest stand-up roller coasters; pay a visit to Charlie Brown and friends at Charlie Brown's Funtime Frolics show; or share the love with the park's new show, Everyone Loves Snoopy.

Admission costs $45.99 for guests 48 inches and taller, and $19.99 for guests under 48 inches.
