Welcome to the brand new Mystic River Falls
There is an overflow queue area just outside the main entrance to the ride.
I have no plans to ever wait in a line that long.
To enter the ride queue line, you walk up the stairs and over this bridge
Going across the bridge will give you this cool view of the load station
The first room of the queue area features 3 boats hanging from the ceiling
Wall art in the first area.
This area of the room features a map of Marvel Cave
There is also a photo of Pearl Brazen who is the main character in the backstory for the ride
Going into the second room now you pass these crates
There is also two signs advertising maps for the Cave and the River. Apparently this area is supposed to be an informational stand
The second room of the queue area
There is a cut out area of the wall where you can see the rafts go down the final drop
A oar display dominates the area.
The following are posters that you will go past on your way to the next area of the queue.
A very large painting of the logo for the company that runs the ride in the backstory
Heading into the last section of the queue which goes outside the building
The final display before you enter the load station
The load station features a continuous conveyor that slowly takes rafts the length of the building.
Once you exit the building, you go down a short roller ramp to the water below
Next the rafts are taken to the top of the River before setting sail
This boat has just exited the conveyor and is at the very top of the River
Heading down the first section of the river
The raft then turns a corner and a long straight away comes next full or rapids
Turning the corner, the sluice drips on the rafts as they go by
Going past a waterfall
Making a turn. The mine shaft is in the back, where we are headed soon
Making another turn before heading to the mine shaft
Once you go through the mine shaft you arrive at the base of the elevator lift
The elevator lift takes you to the top of the elevated portion of the ride
Where you quickly find yourself going down the final drop making a big splash at the bottom
After the drop you float back to the station
If your boat is not aligned correctly for loading/unloading, it will be spun slightly on the green metal that you can see here
After departing your raft, you'll collect your items and walk down the exit pathway
This exit gateway bids you farewell as you enter back into the park
There is a small souvenir stand in the area that features shirts
and other items for purchase.
