Some tour guides are naturally funny and they deliver the lines perfectly. I once rode on it where the guide had all new jokes, except backside of water, and I laughed out loud many times. The best was when he used the gun to "shoo" the hippo's away and waved it at them. I've also had some lame tour guides that don't know much about timing and telling jokes, it's still fun but not nearly as cool....but hey you gotta start somewhere. I love this ride, you never wait long, its super corny and is just fun.
