So, is it a coaster, or a boat ride??
When will the debate start? We just got our reservation confirmation for Hotel El Anduluz so I'm excited!

IMO, it's a boat ride...probably the BEST damn looking splashdown boat ride I've ever seen! But there's nothing about it that makes me say "That's a coaster." I mean, Splash Mountain also has all those elements, and it's not a coaster....

I have seen these pictures a few days before. It is a "Mack" water coaster. I think it looks a little bit like a lower version of the Journey to Atlantis attraction! However, I think that attraction makes a lot of fun. I will ride Atlantica SuperSplash this summer.

For a little kiddies ride that's quite a big turn!

That..is too awesome to be a kiddie credit. If only (CF/P)KI had invested in one of those...It would make a nice 'Avatar' if they cleared off enough land..

Found this at screamscape
Looks like Europa is getting a new dark ride...Maybe underwater themed
