Do they have jet-boat rides there?

I think I've been there before, but my mind is kinda... hazy... about it.


Yes they do.

It's all an illusion.

The waterfall is impossible to construct. Take a good look at the base. The two towers are aligned with the base along it's length and the waterway joining both towers go from side to side. It's an impossible construction made by computer graphics. A bit like the never ending staircase.

It's not physically possible to do this without some cgi trickery.

Remember this day and prepare yourselves for it is a time of great revealing.
For when it arrives, mankind will finally know the truth about everything.

If you look at the bottom right of the video, there is a drawing that seems to show the illusion (or is it an an illusion.....I'm not so sure)
"Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water....."

Bob Caron...." Don't be afraid to die....it's beautiful!

I'm getting the fuck out of Dodge!! Edit: I am now safely out of Dodge!

I think the whole thing is cgi, except the first part, it doesn't make a shadow...maybe
