Check out this photo gallery by volunteer event photographer Arno Knapen from the 25th Annual Cardboard Boat Regatta! We had a great time. Thank you to all for coming out and supporting River Legacy! Stay tuned here for details on our 2015 event!
The Cardboard Boat Regatta challenges amateur boat builders to design, build and navigate boats made entirely of corrugated cardboard. Come and enjoy the fun as you watch the masterful maneuvers of boats braving the waves at Six Flags Hurricane Harbor.
In addition to hosting the competition, the region's largest water park will open the popular Tornado ride PLUS 2 new rides this year, Hook's Lagoon AND the SkyCoaster Swing for guests and participants to enjoy.
