A sign by the entrance informs guests that the ride is shut.

The downward helix that leads into the tunnel. This is where the train split into two.

The exit of the tunnel, which you can see also houses part of the Congo River Rapids channel. The first half of the train continued up the hill before rolling back towards the second half.
