Wild River Rapids is a River Rapids ride built by French manufacturer Reverchon currently under construction at Fantasy Island.


The ride opened at Lightwater Valley in 2009 and was positioned where Vintage Car Rally is now located[1]. For the season 2015 it was moved beside Twister, however this roller coaster was later removed. Wild River Rapids was itself removed at the end of the 2020 season and returned to its original owner - the Mellors family.
