Barrel Rider is a point of interest in Red Dead Redemption 2.


At the base of a waterfall in Ambarino lay hunks of shattered wood and a broken corpse—that of Desiree LaFlamme who perished in an attempt to ride a barrel over the falls and died as a result. The Stunt is publicized on a poster at Emerald Station. "Desiree LaFlamme Queen of the Rapids"


  • This point of interest is likely a reference to the real-life Annie Edson Taylor, the first person to survive a trip over Niagara Falls in a barrel. Unlike her in-game counterpart, Annie survived her stunt with nothing but a small gash on her head, as did a cat who previously made the trip to test the strength of the barrel.
