There are 64 human and 55 animal Audio-Animatronics in the attraction.
The first drop is 52 feet, at an angle of 21 degrees, and the second is 37 feet, also at 21 degrees. This was necessary to get the boats under the Railroad tracks, as the main show building is actually outside the tracks. Guests also get to go *up* a 90 foot waterfall at a 16 degree angle.
The fire effect: There is one peace of fabric hanging from a bar. Onto it is projected orange and red and yellow blinking light. Finally a Fan is added to blow the fabric slightly and it creates the fire effect. The fire marshal had Disney install an automatic shutoff in case of a real fire because the fake ones in the burning city looked so real.
The fog that drifts out from behind the boat in the "Battle" area. It is the Mee Fog effect. Water is shot through a small hole at 1000PSI, the hole is smaller than a hair from your head. Because it forced out so fast, the water condenses, just like real fog does.
The name of the ship in the battle scene is Sea Witch
