The kids will all run to be dunked by the big bucket of water when the steamboat bell goes off. It has 350 gallons of water in it and is dropped every eight minutes. The smile on their faces when they get dunked is absolutely priceless. Be careful if you don’t want to be dunked because they will try to trick you. The Huck Finn Tree house has water cannons and squirt guns to shot others with.
