Disney California Adventure

Grizzly Peak

Grizzly Peak resembles a Northern Californian gold mining operation. The centerpiece of this section is Grizzly Peak, a 110 foot high bear shaped mountain that’s home to the Grizzly River Run attraction.

Grizzly River Run is the wildest, wettest raft ride in the West. The six-passenger rafts start with a 45-foot high climb up Grizzly Peak, with drenching drops to follow. You’ll race down a California river through white water rapids, mountain caverns, waterfalls, and to a dizzying drop into the river gorge. There are two drops, the final one being the Grizzly-Go-Round. Guests drop 22 feet, while the raft spins 360º. Each ride is unique, but one thing is certain, you will get wet.

You'll find free lockers to keep your gear dry near the FASTPASS machines.
