Challenge the rampaging rapids of Grizzly River Run. Embark on a white-water rafting adventure along the foaming torrents of the Grizzly River and up the craggy granite mountain ominously known as Grizzly Peak. The 6-minute journey through the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains culminates in a thrilling, spinning plunge down a runaway river.
The Grizzly River Rafting Company has converted a former mining operation into a natural wonderland for thrill-seeking rafters. Your voyage begins placidly enough, as your 8-person raft gently drifts past long-forgotten remnants of the California gold rush.
Soon, however, you're whisked up an approximately 275-foot-long conveyor belt and deposited into the foaming waters atop Grizzly Peak. Amid the stunning natural vistas and lush pine groves, a growing sense of unease builds as the river speeds up and you dart in and out of ancient caverns, shoot down unexpected gorges, and wind your way around sharp turns.
Worse, all the while, you know the inevitable... what goes up must come down.
Your adventure takes you up the iconic grizzly bear shaped mountain named Grizzly Peak. How did such a natural wonder come to be? According to ancient legend, the peak was once a giant bear named Oo-soo'-ma-te, whom A-ha-le the Coyote transformed into stone to watch over and protect the land.
Amidst the raging water of the Grizzly River and the howling wind shooting through the rocky caves, the great bear's spirit can reportedly still be heard roaring at those who dare to intrude upon the sacred mountain.
Are you brave enough to discover if the legend is true?
Will I Get Wet?
Expect to get wet, and sometimes quite so, on your unpredictable journey along the Grizzly River. Grizzly River Run is a great way to cool down during a warm day at Disney California Adventure Park.
If you'd prefer to stay as dry as possible, souvenir rain ponchos are available for sale at the adjacent Rushin' River Outfitters shop.
Lockers are located next to the 20-foot tall grizzly bear statue, complete with kayak paddle and life jacket, that marks the entrance to Grizzly River Run. Be sure to store any electronics or items that might be damaged by water. The lockers are free for the first 2 hours and $1 for each additional half-hour.
