Slide and spin on a raft adventure ... on dry land!
|Theme Park||Paultons Park|
Kontiki is Paultons Park's pirate boat ride with a difference.
Instead of swinging, the Kontiki raft slides up and down a halfpipe track, rotating as it goes. This gives riders the feeling of floating about on a tempestuous sea.
The ride is similar to enclosed Rockin' Tugs, although the openness of Kontiki allows for a better (if more breezy!) ride experience. The boat is gentle enough for young children, but mildly exciting enough for older children to enjoy too.
