A giant raft slide with 600 feet of twists and turns with a drop into a splash pool.
This is a cool ride in a fully enclosed water slide where no light is visible except for strategic areas of installed light that will make you think you are going faster than you really are. This ride makes all your senses come alive from the intentional darkness of taking this water ride in the pitch dark.
This 300 foot long slide concludes with a few laps around a bowl before being flushed into a the middle pool. Think of a dentist rinse bowl and you are the rinse.
A 600 foot long slide with two giant chambers which cause the inner tube to climb he walls and create a feeling like it will jump the sides. A roller coaster and a water slide built in one.
