Cheetah Chase Coming to Holiday World in 2020, “World’s First Launched Water Coaster”
Named Cheetah Chase, Holiday World’s third water coaster will feature two ProSlide rocketBLAST®-powered racing slides totaling more than 1700 feet of track. Riders will experience a water-powered flat launch before racing against their families toward the finish line.
The ride features the first-ever head-to-head dueling zone on a water coaster, as well as two other RallyPOINTS™ where rafts will synchronize with one another. Each side also features two FlyingSAUCER® elements—which create “a faster and tighter ride with stronger g-forces,” as well as “maximum curving speed and centrifugal force,” according to the manufacturer, ProSlide.
“Cheetah Chase is the perfect thrill ride for families. The three-person rafts allow families to race face-to-face, and the launch is the first of its kind,” says Holiday World’s president, Matt Eckert. “There’s nothing like this out there.”
With a total investment of approximately $7 million, Cheetah Chase is the world’s first full-circuit racing water coaster. It will travel at 30 feet per second and will have the tallest RocketBLAST® section in the world—27 feet tall. Each side will feature five RocketBLAST® sections: one flat and four uphill.
Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari are open weekends through the end of October. For more information, visit HolidayWorld.com or call 877-463-2645.
