Before they built the Adventure Theater, the old LaSalle's Spanish Fort was still up beside the Rapids.

Some of it, or the one they (re)built is still back there in the haunted house/back area behind Rapids and Southern Palace.

I wonder why they stopped using it? That portion of the ride is ridiculously slow when the water level was higher than normal. Occasionaly I would see 2 boats within 6 inches of each other floating around OP2 trying to get into that last leg of the rapids. Had my hand close to the E-stop more than once back there......

I recall it being used pretty sporadically. It seemed to be on every day one year, and then never used the next year.

I should have just flipped the breaker handle on it just to see what it did!
