Radio Controlled Boats
In Enchanted Forest
A Children's Theme Park In Turner, Oregon

A radio-controlled boat is a boat controlled remotely with radio control equipment. Electric sport boats are the most common type of boat amongst casual hobbyists. Hobby-quality boat speed generally start at around 20 mph and go up from there, and can be just as fast or faster than their internal-combustion counterparts, with the latest in lithium polymer and brushless motor technology.

The lake was bounded by snow capped mountains. Four boats floated near a volcano and a light house. The object was to bump the target. For example, if a boat bumped the target on the light house island, the light house would shine.
