Calling it now: Mack Twist 'n Splash either named Aqua Twist or Tsunami (or Sewer Soaker?)

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

It’s official. In 2014, guests can enjoy the park all year long as Six Flags Discovery Kingdom expands its calendar to operate year round, including weekends and holidays in both January and February. Already home to the best entertainment in Northern California, the park will introduce a brand new interactive water ride, the first of its kind at the park. The all-new Tsunami Soaker will be the newest addition to the lineup of family thrills, and this wet and wild attraction will provide an energetic and engaging experience like no other, drenching riders of all ages.

Tsunami Soaker is like the classic teacup ride but with an exciting twist. You and up to five other passengers will hop into one of the nine round boats sitting on a circular floor atop a pool of water. As the ride begins, the floor will lower into the water until it disappears below, allowing your boat to float and splash around. Your raft will spin in circles while the other boats twist around you, creating a disorienting but fun experience.

Each seat on the boat is armed with a giant water gun so every rider can participate in the action. While your boat rotates around the wet course, you can engage in an adrenaline-pumping water battle, shooting your pistol at other riders as well as innocent bystanders, soaking them with bursts of water. This drenching water attraction will be a great way to cool off on a hot day and enjoy a fun family adventure.

The new Tsunami Soaker is set to debut in 2014. Are you ready to get soaked on this new ride?

I know more about donkeys than women!

I think Tsunami Soaker will be a great addition to the park, and I'm excited that the park will be open year-round! I'm really waiting to hear where they're going to put this ride, presumably in the "Sea" section, but for the life of me I can't figure out where.

This ride should be particularly welcome during the summer months, when Vallejo gets hotter than hell.

They have limited ride operation through the quieter months, IIRC. I rode Giant Dipper in November of 2011 once.
