PortAventura's Angkor: Adventure in the Lost Kingdom Update

Spain's PortAventura theme park is showing off the nearly complete Angkor: Adventure in the Lost Kingdom, the new for 2014 highly themed splash battle style boat ride.  The attraction is the largest of its kind in all of Europe, and takes riders through the lost ruins of Angkor and the surrounding jungles - with plenty of interactions like the one depicted above.

PortAventura has been taking a very meaningful approach to theming for years now, and Angkor: Adventure in the Lost Kingdom continues the trend we've seen.  This video exemplifies that, showing the final details being sculpted, painted, and assembled on site.  The large attraction features several different sections that the boats will interact with, and a long bridge provides even more interaction with non-riders.  Things look great so far, and there is no doubt the ride will really shine when complete.

The park has announced that the new attraction will open at the start of the 2014 season on April 11th.
