Wasserbobs @ Schloß Beck Freizeitpark
Bottrop, Germany

Wasserbobs

Wasserbobs is an installation of the "Nautic Jet" ride by Heege-Freizeittechnik of Germany. The single person boat is towed backwards up a steep hill, then released. It is launched briefly into the air before splashing down into the water. The free design means that these rides have a strict weight limit, which, when exceeded, results in the riders getting extremely wet! Schloß Beck has two of these rides; the second may be seen in the background of the photograph.
