Shoot-the-Chute – with straight or vertical lift
Nothing draws the crowds like Intamin’s Spillwater ride. After a gentle boat ride providing guests with an experience designed according to a show designer’s requirements, the boats carrying 12, 15 or 20 passengers suddenly descend a wild and exciting down ramp, sending spray and waves in all directions. Intamin’s ability to create interesting layouts incorporating more than one down chute along with show features, rockwork and special effects makes this ride popular with all ages.
At the top of the lift, the boat is released into a wide, curving trough where it runs on large wheels. Bubbling and gurgling show water, pumped into the trough, creates the illusion that the boat is floating.
After the straight or vertical lift, the boat runs down the chute, rolls on its wheels, and rapidly accelerates up to 75 km/h before it enters into the run out area at the base of the drop creating a huge splash.
The amount of splash can be adjusted to ensure the right effect is produced for individual park requirements. The ride is available with several lift and drop heights. The angle of the down chute is approx. 45 degree.
Using the latest technologies available, Intamin’s Spillwater is ensuring a great success for operators.
