The Rapids show lasts approx. 16 minutes. Eight minutes after the flood gates are opened, the foams reach their peak with an average of 400 cubic metres of water per second flowing in the stream. In the summer surge of the rapids will be accompanied by music of Jean Sibelius. The New Year's Eve show features a rock symphony by the local band Osmo's Cosmos. There will be no music in the other shows at the end of 2023.

The best places to watch the Rapids shows are Koskisilta Bridge and Koskipuisto Park. 

During the summer season, guided tours are organized in the Kruununpuisto  (the park surrounding Imatrankoski). You can inquire about your own guide for groups from Imatra Tours.
