Grizzly River Run Grizzly Peak Golden State Disney’s California Adventure
The “Wetter the Better” is the motto of this thrilling raft adventure that sends you roaring down an abandoned mine and rushing on a river through the scenic foothills of the Sierra Nevada. It’s one of Disney’s tallest, longest, fastest rapids rides yet!
Grizzly River Run is a wild, wet river-rafting adventure.
Charge down a churning California river through:
* Whitewater rapids
* Mountain caverns
* Thundering waterfalls
* Heart-pounding drops into river gorges!
Height Requirement: 42″ (106 cm) or taller.
Lighning Lane access for Grizzly River Run is available with the purchase of Genie+. The standby lines can still be pretty long. Try riding first thing in the morning before queues develop, or during the afternoon parade.
This is a pretty wild water ride, so don’t ride it if you have heart, back or neck problems, motion sickness or other conditions that could be aggravated by a rough coaster. Expectant mothers should not ride, either.
Guests in wheelchairs must transfer out to experience this attraction.
