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

July 20, 2007, 10:06 PM · 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.
