Roman Rapids

Racing through the canals of Italy, carving a path as they go, are the infamous Roman Rapids®.

To challenge these mighty waters is to challenge a part of this great and ancient empire itself -- and to get seriously soaked in the process.

Climb aboard this raft for six and you'll feel as if you've boarded a water chariot, racing along currents of white water.

Dodge drenching waterfalls, spin through twists and turns, and come out on the other side with a whole new definition of the words "Roman bath."   

Ancient Roman ruins, erupting geysers, and waterfalls create a thrilling family water ride.

Must be 42" or taller to ride.

We are committed to providing a safe and enjoyable environment to all our guests. We have two programs at Busch Gardens which are in place to assist guests with disabilities. Our Ride Accessibility Program matches the individual abilities of our guests to the requirements of each ride. We also have our Special Access Policy which will assist guests in enjoying attractions throughout the park as some of our queue lines are not accessible to mobility-impaired guests or those who are not able to wait in line. Both are described below.

Ride Accessibility Program (RAP): Is designed to allow guests to participate in the enjoyment of our parks as much as possible. The program was developed based on the requirements of the manufacturer and by analyzing the physical and mental attributes required to safely ride each ride. Each attraction was evaluated for the criteria necessary for an individual to ride safely. It is our policy to allow anyone to ride who meets all these requirements and is not a hazard to himself or others. 

Special Access: Is designed to allow our guests to enjoy our attractions without waiting in queue lines due to certain disabilities. Guests will be placed in a Virtual Queue which equals the estimated wait time at that respective location. Guests have the ability to enjoy other attractions throughout the park during this time.
