CARNIVAL NEWS - Water Wars Water Balloon Attraction to be Featured Aboard Carnival Fun Ships

Through an exclusive agreement with "Water Wars," Carnival will be the first cruise line to feature the popular water balloon attraction, currently found in amusement parks in 22 countries throughout the world.

The "Jr. Dyno Water Wars" units consist of 2 custom-built "battle stations" in which participants propel water balloons through the air via catapults in an effort to splash competitors.

Currently available on Carnival’s Imagination and Fascination, the units will be installed fleetwide by summer 2007 and located on ships’ open decks adjacent to the main pool area.

"Water Wars" is the latest activity aboard Carnival’s ships which also feature swimming pools, cascading water slides, and acres of deck space for sunning and relaxing. The attraction is expected to be particularly popular among the 525,000 children who sail with Carnival each year.

"We’re always looking for exciting outdoor diversions that will add to the enjoyment to our guests’ vacation experience. ‘Water Wars’ is a great ‘fun in the sun’ activity for guests of all ages," said Bob Dickinson, Carnival president and CEO.

According to Tommy Woog, the agreement with Carnival was reached after extensive planning and research over the past year. "After carefully evaluating Carnival’s needs and specifications, we custom-designed a fun-filled attraction specifically tailored to the line’s unique shipboard environment," he said.


Water Wars manufactures mobile and stationary versions of their water balloon attraction where participants launch water balloons at each other from opposing battle stations. Commonly found in amusement, theme, and water parks in 22 countries, Water Wars has been manufacturing units for 16 years and exhibits at Fun Expo, the World Waterpark show, and IAAPA.
