ARLINGTON, Texas — Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, the largest water park in North Texas, is going to the races with the introduction of the all-new Wahoo Racer! The thrilling multi-lane water slide complex is the largest of its kind in the world and will complement the park’s already impressive line-up of more than 40 rides and attractions.
Standing nearly 60 feet tall, Wahoo Racer is a two-tiered slide mat racer that first sends riders on an intense, winding stretch through colorful tubes before shooting them out into six racing track-styled lanes. Riders then zoom down head first, at speeds of up to 40 feet per second, on aero-dynamically designed water toboggans for the final stretch. Each course is timed, allowing guests to challenge themselves, along with family and friends to reach the checkered flag for the win.
“This massive slide structure is a great addition to our park,” said Steve Martindale, Six Flags Hurricane Harbor park president. “No other water park in North Texas offers this much thrilling variety and we are committed to delivering a bigger, better and wetter experience to guests of all ages.”
Wahoo Racer is part of the second phase of Hurricane Harbor’s multi-year enhancement project which includes a new retail location, season pass processing facility and redesigned restrooms.
Wahoo Racer is scheduled to open Memorial Day weekend. Six Flags Hurricane Harbor opens for the 2014 season on Saturday, May 10. For more information about Wahoo Racer and the other exciting water rides and attractions, visit www.sixflags.com/hurricaneharbortexas.
