River Ride

Pedernales River

The Pedernales River is a 650-foot innovative and unique custom water ride experience. Utilizing lower gradients and higher volumes of water, the slide is very similar to a natural river. The swift current produces a fast moving, powerful ride experience that literally carries rider and tubes from one curve into the next.

From this area, guests can interact with others floating along the Pedernales River.
