Design

Elements

Trains

Single train with 10 cars. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in a single row, for a total of 20 riders per train.

Theme

The ride is themed to the sewers, with a walkthrough portion at the beginning of the ride. This walkthrough is very reminiscent of the old walkthrough portion for Rat Ride in Lightwater Valley. The ride contains a few effects, such as lasers and an encounter with a Metro. The ride used to ride through a slime covered metro station, but this scene has been removed at some point.

On Halloween, the ride gets a overlay, becoming Bloody underground, featuring Scare Actors in the walkthrough and featuring music during the ride, this music was removed in 2019 however.

Etymology

"Rioolrat" translates to "Sewer Rat".
