Story of the Castaways:

Once upon a time, the Cactus Castaways went to Monsoon Bay for a relaxing day on the water. Suddenly, a Tornado hit and turned Monsoon Bay into a Raging River. With Serpentines and Constrictor being dropped into the water by the Phoenix Flyers, they had no choice but to head toward the deadly Mammoth Falls and fall into the Super Bowl. They achieved Maximum Velocity and were shot into the waters of the Crazy Cactus Roaring River. Their speedy journey took them through a magically cool oasis of waterfall, mist, and sudden splashes from above. Suddenly, their raft beached on a desert bank in the middle of the river. The Castaways are still there looking for other riders to pick them up and show them the way out. Join us on this journey to help save the Castaways.
