Rapids Ride is the eighth level in the game Castle Crashers. It is an easy level to beat, just as long as the player stays on some sort of Flotation Device! On Insane Mode you have three things to watch out for: rocks taking a huge chunk out of your health bar or killing you in a matter of seconds, Bats, and Big Fish mistiming.


Swim your way to the right. You'll need to jump out of the water to hit things. Try to avoid any rocks and Sharks that are only visible by their dorsal fins. In the very beginning of the level, you'll find some crocodiles and other things you can stand on and move about in the water a lot easier. If you don't get one, more will float down the river later. While standing on something, you'll be able to simply go right up to the Big Fish and beat them in the face without much trouble.

Keep going to the right and you'll soon be joined by the King at the beginning of the Catfish level.

  • There are many objects the player can use as a flotation device to navigate the waters. One of these is very similar to Magikarp from the Pokemon series, and another is a dead Thief.
  • There is a bunny running on the edge of the land where the Thieves are shooting at you.
  • If you go into the water with magic queued you will keep your aura until you jump back out.
  • Saracen and Bear's Tornado Splash Attack will glide above the water at a regular speed.
  • You can instantly deal with the Bats by using the Level 2 Double Jump with Spin Combo.
  • You can also block shark fins and every single attack from the Big Fishes.
