This ride is far and away the most popular in the park, so expect long lines and be patient. It is a long, but scenic, climb to the top, across a wooden suspension bridge to a staircase that circles a tall, narrow tower. At the top are two flumes, one on either side of the summit platform.
Riders sail down on their backs as they snake through some 250 feet of enclosed tubes which turn transparent as they enter and pass through the Commerson’s dolphin habitat (below) before splash down in a small exit pool. It takes some practice to slow yourself down to survey the habitat and its denizens at leisure. Most people ride several times before they glimpse the dolphins that give the attraction its name.
Tip: The translucent tubes are subject to fogging, which can make it difficult to see the dolphins. Regular riders suggest riding in the afternoon, when the sun has had a chance to “burn off” the fog.
