APPEARANCE: This basically all the Bumper Boats had going for them, as the pond is crystal-clear and the structure surrounding the ride looks great. Also, the boats themselves looked like they got a paint job recently and certainly looked very good.

WAIT TIME: 10-20 minutes- The wait really depends on how hot it is when you visit Funtown, and what time of day it is. Lines for this move very slowly, as while there is a good number of boats from what I can tell, the operator took quite a bit to load and unload each boat.

RIDE: Well, the boats werent the fastest and there handling wasnt that great in my opinion. Also, the collisions were very weak as quite a few of the "bumpers" on the boats were deflated, which caused very weak and dry collisions. But thats not even my biggest gripe from the ride, its the motor. The exost from the motor traveled directly out of the steering wheel and directly into my face, which caused me to have some trouble breathing during the ride. The cycle was pretty long (about 3-3 1/2 minutes), which was horrible because I was a prisoner of these horrible boats.

FINAL VERDICT: I certainly avoid these everytime I visit Funtown as they arent even that good of a set of bumper cars, and if I want to take in exost, Ill just sit behind a car. I certainly dont recommend these to others and if youre hot, use their water park or the flume over this.

This ride, along with the others in this section, are usually hidden to people who dont regularly visit the park. Riders get 5 minutes to splash and crash in to all their friends and fellow guests. The boats do stall out quite often which can drasticly shorten your ride if you get an unlucky boat.

Nice bumper boat ride. Plenty of space to build up speed and most of the boats are usually running on hot days. Its a good way to get a few friends a little wet, though it is not immediatly cooling due to the heat from the motor. The new tubes have a very cool color scheme as well. Worth the trip to this side of the park.

This is your average Bumper boat ride. But they are gas powered and the Fumes from the motor is liable to kill you. I had trouble breathing when I got off this ride.
