    It's blue-ish, though it is a bit thinned out this time so that the water can be more usable for World of Color.

    It's clear, but the track sides and bottom concrete are black.

    I believe it's clear, although the bottom is painted black so it looks a lot darker.

    Pirate water is clear, as is Splash water and that of the other flume attractions.
    River and "dark water" bodies are clear to shade the bottoms from view and to prevent algae growing on underwater equipment.

    If the water was "true as the Deep Blue" blue, like bluey-blue, what makes it inconveniant for WOC, as the more dyed color could hide the platform better.

    The dye in most of the water ways starts off with a heavy blue tint. But the water in the river and other water ways is quite murky and dirty. So if you remove that dye, you get a brownish tint in the water. Add the blue dye and you get green.

    Paradise Bay is pretty motionless, so the blue tint is more noticeable there.

    The yde hasn't been added back into the lagoon yet because the center fountain lift is still having issues.

    I don't think the dye in the water would affect the fountains of WOC. Look at F! they use the same nasty green water for the mist screens and fountains and it works just fine. The dye is added to most of the big bodies of water to trick your mind into thinking it's really deep. Since we are talkin about dyed water the water in BTMRR is dyed a golden copper color. The water at the Horn isn't dyed any color but it's so dirty and pond scummy you can't see the bottom most days.
    Howdy folks, please keep your hands, arms and legs inside the train and remain seated at all times. Now then, hang on to them hats and glasses cause this here's the Wildest Ride in the Wilderness!!!

    Is the submarine lagoon blue tinted? I seem to remember it being blue from a distance.

    I believe the Sub lagoon is clear. Better to see all the underwater scenes and effects.

    I think the difference is that WOC uses WAY more fountains that require precise requirements in order to function properly. Also, I do believe that Matterhorn and Submarine share the same water, which is filled with chlorine in order to see the show scenes.

    Oh yes tons and tons of chlorine. I once heard a story where the ride op CM's where getting headaches and were feeling sick from the smell of the Splash water. So a lead or manager (can't remember which it was) wanted to prove that they were all lying and being dramatic. So the lead or manager took a cup and drank some of the water and said it's fine, go back to work. He called out sick the next couple of days. Hmmmm I wonder why? So close your mouth when you go down the big drop, you just might ingest some chlorine with a little bit of water.
