Planned But Never Built: Boats Spotlight!

Recommended Posts

We have been very fortunate to receive several photos of the "Boats" attraction which for decades have remained a mystery.  Up until now, only the mention of this attraction on the 1974 park map gave us a clue that this planned but never built attraction was ever in the works.  After years and years of investigating and wishful pursuit of pictures of this ride we are really happy to finally be able to share this Spotlight with you!

This was really exciting to finally have some pictures to make a spotlight! It made me a little sad to know they never were used, but I couldn't see rental boats being a practical attraction either. I remember the Paddle Boats being problematic.

Thank you for another of your Award Winning Planned but Never Built spotlights.

 

 

Funny thing is this wouldn't be the only "Acquired by Six Flags park to plan Paddle Boats but not add them until Six Flags did". Six Flags New Orleans planned for them when the park opened but didn't add them until 2003.

I didn't know that was in the plans for Jazzland. I know they were supposed to get the SLC (but also only as of late). I think Magic Springs got it instead.
