Florida’s First Dueling Water Slide ‘Riptide Race’ to come to Aquatica
Aquatica Orlando will be racing into 2020 with a one-of-a-kind dueling water slide, Riptide Race, Florida’s first dueling water slide!
A 68-foot tower awaits riders as they grab a raft and take their mark in side-by-side racing lanes at top speeds. Each raft can hold a team of two, so every rider will have a partner as they plunge toward a hopeful victory. The best part of Riptide Race is that the rafts feature low walls to ensure a full view of the competition. Racers will navigate tight loops and accelerations through indoor and outdoor sections with nearly 650 feet of splashing slide!
“Riptide Race will offer a ride experience you won’t be able to get anywhere else in Florida. Aquatica will be the first waterpark in the state to have a thrilling, and more importantly, dueling water slide,” said David Heaton, Aquatica Orlando vice president. “Riptide Race is the perfect addition to our attraction portfolio, complementing what is already one of the most family-friendly waterslide lineups in Orlando.”
Riptide Race will have a height requirement of 42 inches and will be conveniently located on the north side of the park next to Banana Beach Cook Out.
