Does anyone know how deep the water usually is in ROA? It looks like it would be very shallow, even when full.
I’ve always heard “no deeper than 9 feet,” and Wikipedia says it ranges from 4–8.I'm not sure the average depth, but I believe the JC has deeper areas. They have to dye the water to hide the floor since its so shallow.
LOL! No offense taken here!Fun, old-timey country-western speak. Should we have fun and decide we’re offended, just to see what happens?
LOL, no worries! I knew you didn’t mean it that way.LOL! No offense taken here!
Just curious, at it seems reads differently (in my head) than the signage on Tom Sawyer Island or what's used in Splash. Maybe more like BTMM?
Yes, thats what the track is for. Same with the JC boats. All on tracks. Not really to prevent rocking, just to keep it from hitting the banksIs the boat also on wheels? If not to provide a stable journey with no rocking that would cause guests to fall, but to avoid scraping against the bottom.
I hadn't seen the "outrage" on Twitter. I really do dislike the signage at the parks over the last few years. So cheaply done and, yes, the cartoony look doesn't seem appropriate for the area theming.LOL, no worries! I knew you didn’t mean it that way.
I’m joking about Twitter, but I’m not joking about the not-so-subtle toonification of everything. I can hear people saying, “But it’s for kids!” My response is, “Yeah, and so is the entire well-themed land!”
All jokes aside, the purple cartoon sign was a surprise.
Here’s hoping we get some more traffic on the river after this refurb!
If you read it with Goofy's voice it worksI hadn't seen the "outrage" on Twitter. I really do dislike the signage at the parks over the last few years. So cheaply done and, yes, the cartoony look doesn't seem appropriate for the area theming.

So i wonder where all the gators went? A few years ago standing just south of the river boat, there was a crowd of people standing near the water when I went to see what the matter was someone said they had seen a gator. And every few minutes bubbles came up from down below... look out there!
