Default Riverboat Mystery

Does anyone know which Six Flags park had this riverboat ride? I know it can't be the one in Texas.

I'm pretty sure it was Six Flags Over Georgia since the canoe of indians attacked on the right side. The one at Six Flags Over Mid-America attacked on the left.

This pic is from SF Over Mid-America.

I'm still not 100% on that answer though. The video shows the boat going through a cave. The old park maps show one in the St. Louis park, but not in Georgia. But those old cartoonish maps aren't always accurate. Maybe someone else will recognize it and post about it.

I've found some other pics of the St. Louis boats and all of those have the opening on the roof canopie on the right side, so I'm guessing the canoe pic has been reversed, plus the cave and another building seem to match other pics as well. So St. Louis. An that's my final answer.

That would explain why I got lost so often as a young 'un wandering around the park.

Are you kidding with those maps?? We get lost almost once a day using those damnhell maps going from Texas Depot to Boomtown Depot! They really need to fix those maps before we get in trouble! (consider this thread railroaded, Twisted!)
