SpongeBob's Splash Bash at Blackpool Pleasure BeachSubmitted by Nick on Tuesday, June 05, 2012 10:11
SpongeBob’s Splash Bash was the one of the first Mack Twist ‘n’ Splash rides to open in the world, and combines a spinning “tea cup” attraction with the Splash Battle rides that have become increasingly popular in recent years. As with all Splash Battles (such as Battle Galleons at Alton Towers), riders are equipped with water cannons to soak other boats and spectators on-shire. The circular boats rotate on their own axes, and float free on the water, but are otherwise part of a fairly typical tea cup ride.Review:
There’s only one reason to ride SpongeBob’s Splash Bash: because you want to get absolutely soaked. If that’s the case, it’s a fun way to achieve your goal. It’s not quite on a par with longer, circuit-based Splash Battle rides, but given the space restrictions at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, it’s an innovative use of the format.Top Tip:
Be careful not to stand too close to SpongeBob’s Splash Battle if you don’t want to get wet. Those cannons reach a long way.
