Through an exclusive agreement with Minnesota-based “Water Wars,” Carnival will be the first cruise line to feature the popular water balloon-themed attraction, currently found in amusement parks in 22 countries throughout the world.

The “Jr. Dyno Water Wars” units consist of two custom-built “battle stations” in which participants propel water balloons through the air via catapults in an effort to splash their competitors.

Currently available on Carnivals Imagination and Fascination, the units will be installed fleetwide by summer 2007 and located on ships open decks adjacent to the main pool area.

“Water Wars” is the latest poolside activity aboard Carnivals ships which also feature swimming pools, cascading water slides, and acres of deck space for sunning and relaxing. The attraction is expected to be particularly popular among the 525,000 children who sail with Carnival each year.

“Were always looking for new and exciting outdoor diversions that will add to the enjoyment to our guests vacation experience. ËœWater Wars is a great Ëœfun in the sun activity for guests of all ages,” said Bob Dickinson, Carnival president and CEO.

According to Tommy Woog, Water Wars director of sales & marketing, the agreement with Carnival was reached after extensive planning and research over the past year. “After carefully evaluating Carnivals needs and specifications, we custom-designed a fun-filled attraction specifically tailored to the lines unique shipboard environment,” he said.
