^Thanks!

Very interesting to put a water ride indoors, but I guess they already have an indoor logflume so why not!? =)

It is indeed special to have a indoor splash battle. Don't think there is another splash battle in the world that is indoor.

When the park opens, I can provide you guys with new pictures.

BTW, happy birthday Elissa! :b

People who have done the splash battle are saying that you are getting incredibly wet. Not from the effects, but from the other guests in the boats. You cant make the visitors on the side wet, and they can't do it to you. So it comes down to it that you fight the other boats. ;)

Donkeys are my way of life!

Banana looks like the Mack cable-driven splash battle. You can see in some pics the cable in the water, and the round "pulley" that enables it to turn corners. This is different from Dollywood's Mack version which has booster pumps throughout the course of the ride. Two different, but similar rides. Interesante, thanks for posting the pics.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Seems like every comapny is makin some kind of splash battle type ride these days and seems like a lot of parks are buying them too. I don' think they look all that exciting but maybe I just need to ride one. Never been a huge fan of getting soaked just for the sake of getting saoked. I wish they'd attach some watter guns to a log flume boat and make and interactive log ride now that's be a blast

Live DJ @ Bobbejaanland's Evolution

Postby coasterke » Sun Jun 21, 2009 4:54 am

A couple of days ago, 2 Fabiola, a Belgian Eurodance band (yes it's Eurodance, you can wiki that ^^) gave a live DJ set in the center of Bobbejaanland's indoor rollercoaster (R)Evolution.

Here's the result: (not my video)

Those of you that have done this ride will have a better view of what's going on ofcourse. I think it rocks, awesome idea! And as far as I know, I've never seen anything like it.

Personally I'd love to see Aerosmith doing that on the Rock'n'roller ;).

That was such a great ride anyway. I would have loved to seen this in person, would have been a great experience.

Great Idea, kinda reminds me of the Rock 'n' Rollercoasters, this idea would have been great back in the day on Black Hole at Alton.
