“Adventure Island is heading into its 40th splash-filled season and we couldn’t be more excited to kick-off 2020 by adding America’s first dual tailspin water slide to our portfolio of slides. As a family raft slide, Solar Vortex packs a bigger thrill than I was expecting — the high speed generated by the tailspin feature really amps up the ride journey.”
