also the logo for the ride is sort of a rip-off from the VOC, the dutch schipping company during the colonization period, the eftling chanched the letters a bit :

Damn that ride looks fantastic! I knew the theming would be great after hearing all sorts of great things about other rides at Efteling, but this is way better than I had expected. And the ride itself looks very fun too.

Will the splashdown occur in the lake, using lake water? ::?

The whole project seems to be very well done, I especially like the logo, very creative.

The splash will not be 100% in the lake. They will create a sort of trench. And to assure opening the entire year they will be able to lower the water in the winter to prevent people from getting soaked. So they will probably have some kind of magnetic brakes system added to slow the boats down in stead of using water. But the efteling is not giving away any details. We will have to wait to see what it exactly will be when it is finished !
