River Rocker

All Hands on Deck for a Wild High Seas Adventure!

Climb aboard the sturdy and swift swinging sea vessel for a rip-roaring voyage on the high seas. Don’t be fooled by the calm skies, for once you take your seat on the deck of this open canoe, you’ll set sail to breathtaking heights. As the ship starts to rock swiftly up and back to dizzying heights, it feels like the River Rocker is getting tossed around on the surf. You’ll swing higher and higher until the whole vessel is practically vertical.

As the ship arcs 180 degrees into the sky, you’ll know these must be some serious untamed waves. At a full height in the sky, you can check out the view of Southwest Territory, but hold onto hats because you’re about to experience sheer weightlessness! You’ll hang in the air for a moment, before rushing back down and swinging up the next wave with stomach-tightening momentum – in reverse! You’ll feel the wind race by as you soar even higher. Remember, brave explorers aren’t supposed to scream! This unstoppable velocity would make even the most experienced ocean sailor a little wobbly. But if you’re daring enough, a life of adventure awaits!
