Friday, March 17, Grizzle River Run will reopen to the public after going down for refurbishment in January. This attraction is a guest favorite during months of California heat but every Winter, the attraction goes down to take care of maintenance. We are pleased to see the attraction opening again, just in time for spring break.
Grizzly River Run Official Description
Embark on a thrilling whitewater raft adventure that splashes you down a roaring California river deep in the mountains.
Ride the Wild Waters
Strap into a circular 8-person raft and drift along a lazy river, passing the rusty remnants of an old mining company. Rumble up to the top of Grizzly Peak and brace yourself for an exhilarating descent down Grizzly River on a wild river ride.
Bob and spin through the raging current. Careen through a craggy mountain cavern. Plummet down a perilous bedrock slope. Ease your way back to base camp, but not before navigating waters overrun with gushing geysers.
The Legend of Grizzly Peak
The majestic grizzly bear is the symbol of California—land of towering peaks, giant trees and thundering waterfalls.
As you make your way towards the debarkation point, look for the distinctive bear profile at the top of the mountain. According to early folklore, Grizzly Peak was once a giant bear named Oo-soo’-ma-te, whom A-ha-le the Coyote transformed into stone to watch over and protect the mountain.
Listen closely and you may hear the great bear’s spirit roaring along the river!
Prepare to Get Soaked!
You will get wet on this attraction. Guests are encouraged to bring a waterproof poncho, an extra pair of clothes or a towel to dry off after the ride.
Lockers are located next to the 20-foot-tall grizzly bear statue that marks the entrance to Grizzly River Run. Please stow phones, cameras and any other items that might be damaged by water. Lockers are available at no charge for the first 2 hours.
