Are you ready for a soaking pirate battle on the high seas?

Battle Galleons gives guests a soaking wet adventure on the high seas, bringing the pirate equivalent of a massive water fight to Alton Towers.
The ride is a Splash Battle from Mack Rides. Visitors board one of eight 8-seater boats, which are equipped with a variety of water guns.
The boats move around a lake along an underwater track, passing other boats along the way which gives plenty of opportunities to squirt water at other guests. The battle continues on land too, with several water guns installed on the pathways overlooking the ride.
Battle Galleons is a great fun summer day attraction, although it might be best avoided on colder days: many riders come off absolutely drenched!
