Shoot The Rapids Inching Toward Opening

Cedar Point's new water attraction, Shoot The Rapids, still isn't open yet - but there's hope in sight. Seems the problems with the boats were more severe than first reported - Kinzel says in this article that the "boats weren't engineered right." Seems Intamin outsourced the fabrication of the boats and when placed in the already constructed ride they did not fit properly.

Now the boats are being modified, and being shipped to the park as soon as possible. The delay could still be a few more weeks, though.
