Splish Splash in Calverton, New York, will add two new attractions by WhiteWater West in 2018, Riptide Racer and Bombs Away. Riptide Racer is a four lane racing mat slide. Guests are drenched as they charge down the enclosed flumes in a chase for the finish line. Bombs Away will feature two dueling 300 foot (91m) slides perched on a tower over 50 feet (15m) in the air. This slide combines the anticipation of the Aqua-Launch capsule with the visual impact of looping translucent fiberglass.
“Our guests continually ask for the hottest high thrill rides to be added to the park,” said Mike Bengtson, general manager of Splish Splash. “These two attractions will deliver on both.”
