March 1, 1999 – The Animal Kingdom Attraction Kali River Rapids Opens

Kali River Rapids

“Adventure awaits!”

On March 1, 1999, the thrill ride attraction Kali River Rapids opens in Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom park. The attraction takes guests on a whitewater rapids adventure through the Chakranadi River, exploring scenery found in the heart of Asia. Guests sit inside a wooden pagoda that seats 12 and go up a 90-foot knoll, pass by several waterfalls, go through a raging current, and cascade down a 20-foot plummet near the end of the attraction. Guests are warned that they will get soaked on this attraction, so it is best to ride when the weather is warm. The attraction, like many others in this park, carries the message of being kind to the environment, as illegal logging is destroying nature and leaving hazardous materials in their wake.
