Holiday World has announced its newest attraction, titled Cheetah Chase. Once open, it’ll be the park’s third water coaster and the world’s first launched water coaster.

The ride will feature two ProSlide RocketBLAST-powered racing slides with over 1,700 feet of track. Cheetah Chase also has the first-ever head-to-head dueling zone on a water coaster, along with two other RallyPOINTS, where rafts will synchronize with one another. Each side also has two FlyingSAUCER elements, which offer “a faster and tighter ride with stronger g-forces,” and “maximum curving speed and centrifugal force,” according to its 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,” said Matt Eckert, president of Holiday World. “There’s nothing like this out there.”

The total investment in the ride cost the park $7 million, and Cheetah Chase is now the world’s first full-circuit racing water coaster. The attraction will travel at 30 feet per second and will have the tallest RocketBLAST section in the world at 27 feet tall. Each side will feature five RocketBLAST sections: one flat and four uphill.
