at the C curve (big curve entering Hippo Pool) and use a smokestack as one giant fogger, with a sign on it saying Tropic Miss
(from the poster)! Litter the whole Hippo pool with cargo and debris
, also have 2 smashed up signs on the shore. One sign saying Mekong Maiden
... and another elsewhere saying Magdalena Maiden
. That would explain the boats we have missing in the fleet, and convey a sense of eminent danger.
If I had to choose two places to put foggers I would say Temple and Hippo
. Plenty of shade to keep what little fog is produced. Another thought was to add multiple crocs snapping all around the boat
... imagine that with a little fog! Or have it nice and foggy then a huge Hippo charges out of the mist.
All joking aside I would love to see the sliding croc technology applied here, from what I hear a lot of the HK JC is AMAZING... don't really have the money to travel there so I'll believe the stories. We did talk to WDI about possibly installing a pre-drilled air cannon system in the boat's rail support system, similar to Indy. The thought being that with a flip of the switch we could cause a real ambush with air blasts hitting passengers as we made our daring escape. Another possibility was moving the natives so that they were on both sides, and to add blowguns!
Our Leads, Managers, and WDI all felt that IF a Skip had a switch that could do that... they would abuse it.
