A look at the new mat racer slide coming to Daytona Lagoon.

Daytona Lagoon, the water park just steps away from “The World’s Most Famous Beach” in Daytona Beach, Fla., has announced expansion plans for two new slides.

Guests will be able to experience two all-new slides during their visit to the water park: a 54-foot-high mat racer slide, and a pendulum tube water slide.

The new mat racer slide will replace the once-popular “Kraken’s Conquest” attraction, which was severely damaged by Hurricane Irma last fall. The new attraction will host four lanes, and partial tunnels with translucent rings.

“The natural light from the Florida sun will beam onto the enclosed slide tunnels for light effects of translucent colored rings with special pattern effects that leave the rider with the impression they are going through a high-speed time warp tunnel,” said Jim DeBerry, senior manager for North America, Arihant Water Park Attractions. “Upon exiting the enclosed slide tunnels, the riders will enter an open straightway for an exciting race to the finish.”

The fun continues with a new pendulum tube ride, which launches from the same tower as the mat racer. This new slide in similar in shape to a half-pipe, and is open to riders who are 42 inches or taller.

The slides will open to water park visitors this summer, though no specific date has been announced.
