Katanga Canyon

Katanga Canyon

Katanga Canyon was born in 1992.

Originally the area was part of AquaLand, which had the Log Flume, and the Grand Canyon Rapids as its major attractions. In 1992, when AquaLand was split up into four new areas, Katanga Canyon came into being. The rapids ride was given new themeing, a new ride simulating a runaway train was built, and the surrounding areas were impressively themed like an African colonial village.

Katanga Canyon is the best area in the park for its themeing, and both rides fit in perfectly. The area never seems to be very busy, as many people just pass through the area when using the path to Forbidden Valley. Beware that during the summer months you will be queuing for quite some time for the Congo River Rapids.
