"My mother, 8 year old niece, and myself took the Extreme thrill ride. We all enjoyed the ride, but mostly my niece. She asked if we could stay on the boat and ride again!!!!! We were drenched but the experience was the highlight of the trip for my niece. Of all the things to experience in the Chicago area, its one of my favorites."
