I've been thinking about this for awhile.

Since BGT needs more water rides (Because the ones they have are packed!) I think they should make one based on the Nile.

It would be a water coaster hybrid, just like Journey to Atlantis, and it would feature elements never experienced before on a regular water ride!

Comment for more information! ;)

I think BGT has a good collection of water rides. You have three different types at this point - rapids, flume, and splash down.

Personally, I'd like to see them focus more on indoor attractions and/or family style attractions to help round out the list of attractions they have. A few more indoor attractions, that can run during a thunderstorm, would do wonders for the park and help with the complaints that everything shuts down during storms.

A water coaster/hybrid would be a cool addition, so long as it wasn't too intense (I think a more moderate thrill would do just fine, otherwise you limit your potential ridership alot). Not sure where they would fit it at the moment though.

It would be an indoor water ride, with a few outdoor elements. It would be a 42" rider restriction, with two drops. One is a water drop with four water "towers" at the bottom of the hill ready to soak you. Then it takes you back into the Temple to drop into a spiraling roller coaster drop. Here's a picture:

Fun fact, I'm going to talk to Mr. Rose, the engineer at BGT about becoming a rollercoaster engineer, and I'm going to show him the plans for Nile Falls and Riptide (Surfmaster). I will be talking to him over Thanksgiving Break, so stay tuned! :)

Tell him I want to meet him!(I've seen him on a few tours before)I love your idea of a water coaster. The only thing is change the name and give it to the rapids ride.I would change the theme to the pyramids.The concept art looks sorta like a tomb or a temple.I could picture this at the park.When I looked at this it looked like it was a new ride.I feel spoiled with all the soaking wet rides and indoor rides we have here at BGW.Also I guess I'm not the only person who is trying to become a roller coaster engineer.Good Luck and design an awesome coaster!

Thanks! Maybe I can design a similar ride to replace Roman Rapids. ;) And I like the name because (even though the concept art is blurry) it fits the theme of a Nile Cruise.

Yep. Anyway, the unique addition to Nile Falls that would set it apart from other water rides is what I call "Water Towers". They would be basically hoses that are flowing water from the towers(4), soaking the riders.
