Yet another tallest and fastest is coming to Orlando this summer. This time in the form of a race slide at Wet ‘ Wild.
The Aqua Drag Racer will be six stories tall and propel guests through four lanes of head-to-head competition at 15 feet per-second before splashing them across the finish line. Guests will take their mark, get ready then power through enclosed braided, twisting tunnels as they accelerate into four parallel racing lanes. The Aqua Drag Racer is designed to be the wettest and wildest high-speed drag race ever. The new ride replaces the Bubba Tub.
“The new Aqua Drag Racer will pull guests into a high-speed thrill ride unlike any other around,” said Michael Black, Sr. Vice President & GM of Wet ‘n Wild. “This ride combines friendly competition along with the excitement of sharing the rush with family and friends.”
