Water Coaster?

Monday, June 6, 2005 8:59 PM
I need some help with finding a coaster. I am having trouble remembering the name of a coaster I once saw on the Travel Channel. I searched and searched online, but I can’t seam to find the name or location of this coaster. It was a coaster; I remember it being an inverted design, with only 4 riders per train? What was unique about it was that guests on the ground could shoot water at the ride. And if my memory is correct, the guests on the ride had the ability to drop water on those shooting at them. Any help with finding this coaster would be great. Thanks in advance.

Don't forget about Flying Super Saturator, too.

Exactly. That Super Saturator at Carowinds may have been it as well. You get soaked even while in the queue so it's a soaker even before you hop on the ride.

And, yes, you can actually take aim down at those shooting up at you with your (very limited) water blast from the train itself.

It's a neat ride but dreadful capacity as you can imagine.

Super Saturator was first, btw, as well ;).

There would be a LOT of these things if only the price were more...reasonable. I guess there's just a lot of *precautionary measures* that need to be in place to handle the volume of water and electricity in close proximity that drives up the price so dramatically...

RCDB only lists two suspended soakers [PCar and Hershey] but I thought there was a third at a water park on the east coast somewhere?

edit - never mind, I found it! Its not by Setpoint but by Capriro at a waterpark in Greensboro, NC. It is SBNO and slated for removal.
