Congo River Rapids -
10 acres of glorious water rapid fun, with each ride different from the last. You'll never know what's around the next cornerâ€¦
Built in 1982, the ride was originally themed around the Canadian flumes that moved logs from the forest to the riverside. It was then completely revamped in 2004 with the logs replaced by bathtubs, plus rubber duck props, bathtubs and overhead taps to soak riders.
Chessington World of Adventures
A giant Buddha and replica Angkor Wat temple were among the ride props in Dragon Falls, now removed as the ride undergoes new theming for the 2014 season.
The UK's first reverse water chute recreates the story of a lifeboat rescue. Watch out for the trick track launch at the beginning of the ride!
Oakwood Theme Park
Formerly known as Hydro before rebranded as Drenched in 2011, the huge 100ft chute plunges you over 50mph into the water. You end up exactly what the name says!
Pleasure Beach Blackpool
This extremely popular water ride was refurbished in 2012, riders may now get even more wet! The journey through ice, fire, wind and snow incorporates special effects such as explosions, fire and lightning sparksâ€¦ it's a truly classically themed water ride.
Boasting the highest log flume plunge in the UK, Logger's Leap is a classic traditional log flume ride, lasting for over five minutes with a highest drop of 53ft.
An 85ft drop into the blue pretty much guarantees a drenching at the 1960s Amity Cove themed Tidal Wave. Constructed in 2000, the ride was once the tallest water ride in Europe, before losing its crown in 2002 to Oakwood Theme Park's Hydro (now Drenched).
