    That makes it look like it is going down in slow motion.

    I'll be honest, the drop makes it seem like one wrong move and it will flip over

    Yeah, but they all don't have a humongous drop...This one just seems weird to me

    Yeah, I would hate to end up on it with a bunch of lightweight 10yo children due to the lack of downward gravity.

    It seems to be fine at DCA (although there's is half the height):

    Should we expect to see more water on Infinity....I don't know, just seems strange seeing the raft go down

    They were also showing it in slow motion. If you watch the video the water is moving slower than normal water does. It's only at the end they show it regular speed.

    I feel the same way. The sides don't seem high enough. Doesn't look right.

    Not to continue on with my paranoia, but if you watch Midway's original video, when the raft first comes off the platform and starts dropping, it wobbles a bunch

    Again, just odd to me probably haha

    I'd imagine so, that was a trickle. More water, less friction, greater speed.

    That may help with the perceived bumpiness on my part

    I think the bumpiness would be great fun but not what you’d expect. I imagine they’ll gradually add more water and decide what the best experience is from there.

    I would assume it will have a similar water flow as another Intamin Alpine Rafting ride.

    Here is what its splashdown looks like.

    It does appear that Infinity Falls has a longer run out, which might reduce the wave effect some. But, the video seems to show a limited wetness to the splashdown.

    Here is a POV video of the ride showing the lift and drop (starts at about 45 seconds).

    That’s a bit disappointing for a waterfall
