Hey everyone, I went to Wet 'n Wild yesterday and got on all the rides except the Black Hole. Didn't look worth the wait. The park was great! Alot of rides to choose from..and any water park with an Intamin HalfPipe in it is awesome! It was also a beautiful park. It had tons of palm trees and other exotic plants throughout the entire place. It was vastly spreadout.
Surfrider - I didn't really know what to expect from this ride. It looked pretty fun...almost like Intamin looked at a Huss Frisbee and turned it into a coaster. It was pretty fun, a few good moments of floater air was good. Can't this be considered a floorless coaster? Is it?
One bad thing - They spray you with these fire hoses...ouch. But refreshing.
Looking at Surfrider from across the park. Looks steeper than 90* to me.
Yay for another new Intamin coaster! I love those restraints.
Hanging ten on the most awesome wave out there!
Super 8 Aqua Racer (One person Mats) - It was a fun ride. Eight lanes to choose and hop on a mat and slide down. It looks more fun than it really is IMO.
KERSPLOOSH. I think it's a tie.
White Water Mountain Rapids (one person body slides) -
Enlosed slides: One was really good. It was pretty long and zig zaged its way down the mountain. The other kinda turned around and went straight. BUT both had an AWESOME helix of death.
Open slides: Both were pretty good with some dip and twisty paths down the mountain.
Mmm...four options of awesomeness.
One of the Rapids with Speedcoaster in the background.
Mmm...two awesome helixes with nice forces for a waterslide.
Twister (enlcosed body slides) - It's the typical twister you would see at a park. I think this one was better than KI's...smoother or something.
Speedcoaster (Two-two person enclosed/open slides) - This really puts the word 'coast' in 'coaster'. It was pretty lame...not really much speed, just a gradual decent...then you get about 3m up the hill and fall back ddown.
Mmm...time for some lunch! I got the Mountain Burger at Bombora's.
Next up I went over to the Mammoth Falls. It's one of those big raft rides. We got six people in a raft and man the ride was great! Countless times your raft went really high up on the sides of the slide! Oh, that's wave pool in there. Some nice waves!
The Mach 5. Three jetspeed slides...OUCH. I went on 2/3, because the outside ones are the same. They basically ripped the skin off your back traveling about 85 km/h or something. The Sidewinders were pretty good. It was like the Mammoth Falls except only 3 people and there are more bumps and drops.
The Tornado was really good. It was a smaller version of KI's big bowl, but it was still just as good! We got pretty far up the side of the bowl.
Back to the otherside of the park to explore some of these "Canyons" I've been hearing about...
Terror Canyon 1 and 2(Enclosed double person tube ride) - Wow, now this ride was really cool. There were light effects, airtime, and high speed helixes. The ending was insane! You got sooo airborne on both of the drops!
Can you say...airtime?!
You really need to hold on....tight!
Thanks for reading guys....still more updates to come!
