Following up on the successful new "Mystery Mine" roller coaster, Dollywood will open a new water ride for the 2008 season. "River Battle" will be a themed raft ride in which the passengers will be able to interact with the ride by shooting at over 100 targets. These targets will display a variety of special effects, creating a unique experience for every passenger. Passengers will also be able to take aim at other ride-goers and observers. Dollywood hopes to have the $5 million project finished by next Spring.
