Kali River Rapids® Attractions is an unguided raft trip down the artificial Chakranadi River. You'll begin your adventure by walking through a centuries-old temple and a small shop selling hand-crafted wares. Once you enter the boathouse of Kali Rapids Expeditions, you'll step onto your raft, where the thrills await. The whitewater journey starts with a 90-foot ascent past a lush jungle. Then you’ll drop into the gushing geysers and drift under waterfalls. After you cover some choppy waters, you’ll pass debris left behind by illegal loggers and even see a few fires blazing through the landscape. (This is all just for effect, of course.)
Kali River Rapids® Attraction is a very popular attraction in Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park. Of course the lines will be shortest first thing in the morning, but that also means you’ll be walking around in wet clothes for longer. Save it for the end of the day. Since you will get extremely wet, bring an extra change of clothes and store them in the locker if you don't want to be in wet clothes. Or bring two plastic bags and a poncho per person and make sure to remove your socks. Cover your shoes with the plastic bags and cover yourself with the poncho. Also, make sure your cell phone, camera and wallet are protected. Unless it's the middle of summer, we save Kali River Rapids® Attraction for the end of the day so we don't have to walk around in wet clothes very long.
Kali River Rapids® Attraction is located in Asia® Land at Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park. The actual raft ride is very short; about 4 minutes. The queue winds through an ancient Southeast Asian temple and is one of the most impressive settings of any Disney attraction. Kali River Rapids® Attraction is good for all ages as long as they’re tall enough (38 inches) to ride. Each raft seats 10 guests (2 by 2); each seat has a seatbelt-style restraint. Guests must transfer from their wheelchair, motorized scooter or ECV to board the raft.
