Dollywood announces new $5-million 'River Battle' ride for 2008

Dollywood has announced its new atttraction for 2008, an interactive boat ride, called River Battle. (And thanks for the name-check of TPI in the press release, folks!)

It's a "shoot-'em-up"-style boat ride, where the eight passengers on each raft get a water cannon, with which they can take aim at the 100 targets to be built along the course... or riders on the other rafts.

If the ride look familiar to west coast TPI readers, that's because it appears to be a countrified version of the Splash Battle ride that Legoland California debuted last year.

Very interesting. It does look a lot like Splash Battle. Hope it turns out as a cool ride!

Hopefully it will be good they need a new water ride!
