River Battle is a themed water raft ride equipped with powerful soaker guns. Eight rafts, seven of which will accommodate eight passengers and one ADA raft that will accommodate six passengers and one passenger in a wheelchair, follow a 500-foot channel. As the rafts navigate the waters, the battle begins as passengers, each armed with a soaker gun, take aim at each other and more than 100 targets along the way, including large-scale “talking animals”—beavers, skunks, otters, bears and more. Some of the targets shoot back while others display a variety of special effects, creating surprises at every turn and ensuring that no two rides are ever exactly the same.
River Battle also engages park guests along the ride’s banks. While rafters are soaking each other in raft-to-raft sparring, they also can “shoot” observers along the way in “raft-to-shore” fun. In the park’s ongoing effort to provide opportunities to bring families closer, River Battle is yet another ride addition that allows parents and children to ride together.
Note: During the Great American Summer festival, this attraction will close at dusk.
Special Information: This ride is subject to closures during inclement weather conditions including lightning, snow and extreme cold.
