^^Pilgrim's Plunge is in a completely different league from this.
I am talking about a standard run of the mill open air flume ride.
My thinking is that every park in the world for the most part has a standard flume ride. Cedar Point HAD two: The Mill Race and White Water Landing, but both were removed to make way for Raptor and Maverick. So if you wanted to ride a water ride, your choices were Thunder Canyon (and get soaked) or Snake River Falls (also get soaked).
I am really glad CP decided to buck the trend and just build a good old fashioned flume ride. Can't wait to ride it!
