The design does look pretty cool imo but there are way too many things that could go wrong. What if someone fell off the raft? What if it lost power? Seems like water could build up somewhere in it too.

I imagine if someone falls off the raft, they would just have to float along next to the raft to get off the ride.

Yeah, I think this is a really cool concept, but i doubt I'd ride it due to the combination of claustrophobia and nausea from going back and forth. It just doesn't look enjoyable to me.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Heck, the thing seems to move so slowly most of the time, (and REALLY slows down to a near stop at some points) if someone falls out of the raft, I'm sure they could pretty easily crawl back in when it hits a slow point.

Is this being set up at the manufacturing plant? If so...what's all that purple (Gerstlauer?/Mack?) track for?

Could the purpley/pink track be for DC Rivals? Not sure how old the photo is.

That's what I thought, but they just posted it on their facebook. Not sure who they may do some manufacturing for.
It looks like Gerstlauer track to me. Since I believe Mack does most of their manufacturing in Rust.

Also, this may be a stupid question, but what keeps the water flowing through the ride? Wouldn't it build up in the bottom corners of the slide?


Wouldn't the 'puddle' of water the raft is in move through with the raft? Problem?

This is basically just a giant auger pump.
