Morning Thrill Seekers,
I’m a little disappointed with myself that Disney file a patent for an Omnimover Boat ride last month and I’m only picking up on it now! Poor show from me, apologies people but I’m on it now.
What is a Omnimover Boat Ride I hear you cry!?
Well if we take a look at the description for patent US20130025491 Disney describe it as;
A floating omnimover ride with high capacity throughput and enhanced control over speeds of passenger boats. The ride includes a water containment structure with spaced apart sidewalls defining an elongated guide channel that defines a loop-shaped ride path or circuit. The ride includes a volume of liquid contained in the guide channel to a desired depth. The ride also includes a chain of passenger boats floating in the liquid contained in the guide channel. Each of the boats is linked to the two adjacent boats with a connecting link such that the chain of boats is a continuous loop. The chain of boats has a length that is approximately equal to a length of the ride path, and during operation of the ride, the boats in the chain are moved along the loop-shaped ride path at a predefined rate by a pump station moving the liquid in the guide channel.
Well that explains it!…. here’s a pic to help
So layman’s terms it some boats chained together to make sure slower boats don’t slow down the ride…
What this new ride is for or where it will appear is anyone’s guess, but obviously by filing for patent in the U.S. it prevents other Orlando Theme Parks from developing their own and kind of hints it will appear in Orlando at some point.
