Riff Raff is a loop, between the top of Ice Breaker and the Container Hub. From the Hub you can cross Arapuke Rd to the start of Mr Twister, join the top part of Jack and the Beanstalk or ride Rocky. If you continue down Riff Raff, you end up back where you started, but if you head into Swamp Monster this makes a great G2 loop back to Scotts Rd. Car Park.

Access Info

End of Ice Breaker or from the Container Hub.
