Two sentence insider summary
Maku Round Raft Ride features a six-person raft that first plunges riders through a deep volcanic gorge before depositing them in bowl-like formations, spinning them endlessly around. For the grand finale, geysers erupt and a watery vortex pulls the raft into even more twists and turns.

Fear factor
3 out of 5. Though definitely a wild ride, Maku is still listed by Universal as a family attraction instead of a thrill one.
