Pigeon Forge, TN -- Dollywood announced the new River Battle ride that will open in the park's Timber Canyon area in 2008. This $5 million themed water raft ride has nine rafts equipped with powerful soaker guns that follow a 500-foot channel. As the rafts navigate the waters, the battle begins as passengers, each armed with a soaker gun, take aim at each other and more than 100 targets along the way. River Battle also engages park guests along the ride's banks.
