Old "Game" - Boat Tag or Boat Battle
#1
Anybody else remember this? It was located where wild mouse/some basketball game is currently located. There were tank-like boats that had spinning turrets and fired tennis balls at each other? You had to pay to ride, and it was technically a game, not a ride (though it was more like a ride, you couldn't win anything). It was there after the old Wild Mouse closed, and I'm not sure if the Wild Mouse was SBNO at the time. It may have only been there for one year, and that year was possibly 1992,

I found a similar one here:

And apparently some parks also had/have land-based tank "games" like this too:

I like dark rides

I tried it once. It was a fun little game.

The Morey's Piers description says the guns were loud. Were Lagoon's?

Not from what I remember, and we used to buy buckets of balls to fire at the "bombs." Smile
