Best Way to Prep for Dudle Do-Right Ripsaw Falls?

This is the one ride I've never been on at IOA since they have a lot of restrictions on what you can wear.

I decided I'm going for it this time! What can/should I wear on the rides and what should I bring with me to change into if you can change at all?

You will get wet on this ride no matter what. I don't recall restrictions on what you can wear. We always just wear normal park clothes and then head back to the hotel to change after we have done all the water rides.

What do you mean when you say restrictions on what you can wear?

I don't think even a poncho could save you. You will get soaked, to the bone.

We stay onsite. Pick when we want to do the water rides, wear our swim suits to the park and ride them a few times each. Then go back to the resort and change. Dudley Do-right is one of our favorite rides.

Are there a lot of restrictions on what you can wear?

Can`t say I ever noticed that.

You will get soaked......drenched.

We too usually do the water rides then head back to the RPR and get changed.

Good ride but bit awkward getting in and out of.

Can't stress enough, you be totally soaked on this ride, Jurassic Park ride and the raft ride. Even though we toured in July and August, I hate being in wet clothes. The dryers did not work very well for us.

We use a poncho to cover as much as we can. The problem with this flume ride is the log vehicle is a pretty tight fit, I could not get enough of my poncho under my butt to provide much protection. My bottom half was totally soaked.

We ride all three water rides together and then go back HHR for a break and change.

never heard of any restrictions on what to wear, We usually just have shorts and tshirts and crocs or flip flops , no socks or trainers, dry quite quickly in the summer sun

We usually do all the water rides one after the other, get completely and utterly soaked and the change in the toilets as we dont stay onsite. I couldnt possibly walk around in wet clothes all day, you get seriously wet EVERYWHERE on these rides so once you go with a full change of clothes (if you dont stay onsite of course) then you'll be fine The water rides are my favourite!

Oh and dont wear denim!! Walking from one ride to the next in dripping wet denim can get sore - trust me!!!

What you WANT to wear, though, is something that will dry quickly. And that means underwear, too. You don't want to have wicking top and bottom, but then have a padded (and sopping wet) bra on underneath that shows through for hours. Or cotton undies being obvious under your shorts. Wicking clothes.

Or just a change of clothes.


DH used the body dryer after Bluto's Barges* once, and it did absolutely nothing except make him hot. It's just not that strong, and unless you're already wearing clothes that wick away moisture (he was not, he is a cotton kinda guy) it's not going to do much for your $5.


We tend to pick one day to do all the wet rides and just go from one to the other. After that we decide what to do about our clothing.


*while it's *possible* you won't get drenched to the bone on Ripsaw, the Barges are pretty much just like taking a shower and a bath at the same time.

Actually, Universal does have a dress code- men/boys can't be shirtless, and women must wear some kind of bottoms at all times. Women can wear a bikini top, but they must have on shorts or pants. For all rides, you must have your shoes with you.

Well the question was specifically for Ripsaw. I didn't think we were talking overall park clothing.
