Description And Comments

JAWS delivers five minutes of nonstop action, with the huge shark repeatedly attacking. A west Virginia woman, fresh from the Magic Kingdom, told us the shark is "about as pesky as that witch in Snow White." While the story is entirely predictable, the shark is fairly realistic and as big as a boxcar; but what makes the ride unique is its sense of journey. JAWS builds an amazing degree of suspense. It isn't just a cruise into the middle of a pond where a rubber fish assaults the boat interminably. Add inventive sets and powerful special effects, and you have a first-rate attraction.

Touring Tips

JAWS is well designed to handle crowds. People on the boat's left side ted to get splashed more. If you have young children, consider switching off (see page xref).

The blue bars represent the average "peak" wait time (that is, how long the line will at its busiest). The bottom and top black lines represent the range of peak wait times to expect (for you fellow nerds out there: it's the 5th percentile and 95th percentile of peak wait times).
