New Water Slide to Open at Aquatica this Spring

If you’re a water slide lover then you’re in for a treat – Aquatica’s newest slide, Rip Ride Racer, is set to open sometime in the Spring of 2020.

The new thrilling slide tops out at 68 feet and features two tubes that sometimes run parallel to each other and sometimes intertwine. What makes this slide unique is that is that there are stretches where you can actually see fellow riders sliding by.

“The two riders in each of the two slides are only separated by a single divider, so you get the perspective of racing the two next to you as you go down the slide,” said David Heaton, Aquatica’s vice president, during a recent hard-hat tour of the construction area. He said that feature was the first of its kind in Florida.

We don’t have an opening date set but we’re looking forward to checking this one out!
