River Caves

The term River Caves is used to describe a particular type of dark ride involving a boat trip through "cave-like" tunnels, each incorporating a different theme. Once a popular feature of many amusement parks, this style of ride is now relatively rare and can be found in only a few locations, mainly in the UK and United States. Despite their popularity in the early to mid-20th Century, the shift in focus to the thrill ride in the latter half of the 20th Century onwards and the sheer age of the design and mechanics of these rides means that many have been dismantled and sold or destroyed altogether.
