it may be more efficient as well and not need as much water...maybe? haha
Tough to say... if the boats are free floating like in any of the other three and are smaller/more buoyant than the boats on Pirates, they wouldn't displace as much water and therefore would not require as deep of water (granted the water in Pirates isn't that deep to begin with. If that was the case, then that would change the numbers dramatically. If the boats are actually on an omnimover type system (as they are using in Shanghai for Pirates there), in theory there could be very, very little water (just a couple inches would be more than sufficient in a room that will otherwise be mostly dark) and in that case the ride would be huge. Does the original permit have a scale that you could estimate the length of the ride in feet/meters? That might be a better estimate of length than looking at water usage.
