Popeye and Bluto Bilge Rat Barges water ride at Universal Studios

Here’s another youtube video I made. This one is of Popeye’s and Bluto’s Bilge Rat Barges water ride at Island of Adventure in Universal Studios. From the video it does not look like you will get very wet, but that is wrong!

Popeye and Bluto’s Bilge-Rat Barges is the third water ride located in Universal’s Islands of Adventure Park. This whitewater rafting ride is based on the Popeye cartoons. The Bilge-Rat Barges opened in 1999 and it still is one of the country’s most popular themed versions of this staple attraction. It has fantastic thrills and spills and you DO get wet!

Riders get in a big circular raft and go down a river being soaked by waterfalls. As you go along the ride you are hit with water from top to bottom. Don’t be surprised if you’re completely soaked when it’s all over! This experience really offers bang-for-your-buck.
