Silver Dollar City 2010: RiverBlast

New for 2010 at Silver Dollar City: Tom & Huck's RiverBlast! Although we all saw this one coming for some time, the park has finally officially announced the ride to the public. Billed as "America's Biggest Water Battle," the new $7 million ride will open at the theme park March 18th, 2010.

Eight passengers on one of eight separate boats will each take their turn sailing down Tom and Huck's river - appropriately filled with 150 water gags and targets, along with plenty of themed scenery. Each rider will have their own water blaster while on the ride, and even people on the midway will be able to get in the splashing action.

The five minute ride is 567 ft. long and will be located near the park's Carousel Barn. For further details, check out the website that the park has launched for RiverBlast!
