    That's an interesting question. I haven't seen blueprints or statistics like that for the attraction, and measuring shadows is too tricky for something with such an organic shape...anyone know?

    Re: How tall is Grizzly River Rapids?

    From the original press release:


    Grizzly Peak, the 150-foot-tall mountain that the ride traverses, features a California Grizzly Bear rock formation at its crest. The design was carefully created to resemble a natural rock configuration that just happens to look like a bear. Chris Tietz, explained the creative process. "We wanted the mountain to clearly represent the beauty of California's natural wilderness, much like Yosemite National Park. Along with that we wanted to develop an icon out of granite. The California Grizzly Bear fit the bill perfectly."
