Blue Bayou Water Park: Aqualoop Construction and Updates

Postby IStillPlayRCT2 » Sat Feb 04, 2012 4:16 pm

Blue Bayou Water Park in Baton Rouge, LA announced in 2011 that it would be adding a Quadruple AquaLoop Water Slide for the 2012 season. If you aren't sure what that is, I've attached a photo of the one at Wet N' Wild in Australia. I'll be posting updates of construction as Blue Bayou posts them to their Facebook page. They will also be redoing their lazy river and making other various updates to the water park. If there are any other updates about Blue Bayou I'll post them here.

If you ever see any major progress, let me know. I'd like to hear more of it. There are apparently a few Aqualoops being built in America and are not getting announced. For example, there's two intertwining aqualoops getting built in Washington at a park called Jolly Roger Splash Mountain.
So long, and thanks for all the fish!

I hope they have better luck with these Aqualoop slides than they've had at Wet 'n' Wild in Australia so far.

^What problems has Wet n Wild been having? I haven't been following these things too closely, so could someone fill me in?

^When TPR was there last spring, the Aqualoops were closed for some sort of refurbishment. I was never clear on what was wrong--only that riders were having some "issues" with them.

For all I know, they're probably OK now.

The slides probably wore quickly, that'd be my guess from what you're telling me. Got to scratching people's backs in no time at all. Maybe people were wearing something to cause it to happen so quickly.

I wish England would get one, Although I can't see any being installed in any of our waterparks. Sandcastles is highly unlikely, queywest water park might be able to squeze one in, but I doubt that too. Splashdown Poole is probably the best hope. :)

Since your visit they have disassembled the slides and replaced some segments, and now the slide runs with a policy that you have to wear a rashie (the park provides them if you dont have one)

^Thanks for the update. I was rather looking forward to trying those slides when TPR was in Australia last year.

Interesting. You're not allowed to wear a shirt at all on Vanish Point at Water Country in Williamsburg, but it's not as crazy as the Aqualoop slides.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Vanish point from ProSlide? Different manufacturers would explain the different policies.
