Detailed Information

What was it?


The Octopus resided in AquaLand, where the radio-controlled boats now stand. The ride was very similar to the Spider that was also in the park at this time, where pairs of seats, connected to the Octopus tentacles, are spun around a central hub.

The ride was removed by the beginning of 1992, to make space for the new path that led to Katanga Canyon.
