A mostly indoor boat ride shooter themed to a prisoner uprising in a coal mine that has sprung a watery leak.

This feels a bit like Pirates of the Caribbean but with guns. It's not entirely on that level, but it's still quite an extensive dark boat ride for a regional park. A lot of the targets interact with you; bells ring and tools move. There's also a strange theme song that sets the mood right. It's great to have such a fun ride with basically no wait all the time.
The Flooded Mine is a Buzz Lightyear-style shooter set in a flooded coal mine. I enjoy this attraction quite a bit, and if you take the time to consider it fully, you will find there is a depth of theming at work here that is truly Disney-on-a-budget (intended as a compliment), not just some off-the-shelf effects flown in from Sally Corp. There is usually no line for this ride, and it is not uncommon to ride it several times in a row without getting out of your boat.
It's an older shooter ride, but great theming from the moment you enter the queuing area through the actual ride.
