It will be located in the water park’s Banana Beach Cookout and Ray Rush which opened up last year. Riptide Race will be the first addition since KareKare Curl opened up last spring. Starting off from a 68-foot tower and traveling over 650 feet of slide, park officials says.
“Racers will navigate tight loops and accelerations through indoor and outdoor sections,” a news release says. Each raft will hold two people apiece. The attraction will have low walls so that non-rider can watch easily.
“Riptide Race will offer a ride experience you won’t be able to get anywhere else in Florida,” said David Heaton, vice president of the water park. “Aquatica will be the first water park in the state to have a thrilling, and more importantly, dueling water slide.”
The height requirement will be 42 inches tall in order to ride.
