Vortex/Riptide

You’ll Want to Get Caught in this Whirlpool.

It’s not news that the ocean is a powerful force, especially full of treacherous hazards for creatures that are used to living on dry land. At any moment, a riptide or a swirling vortex might make you do an unintended belly flop, or worse. Out in the raging oceans and deep at the heart of tropical storms, these currents and whirlpools are one of nature’s original thrill rides. But why should the fish get all the fun? Now you can hurl your body into a mind-warping spiral the likes of which is usually only found way out at sea.

The twin high-speed purple body slides in this two-slide complex are half-open and half-enclosed. They are mirror images of one another, so you are guaranteed satisfaction on whichever you choose, but don’t let that stop you from trying each run over and over.

A steep course of sudden drops and speed-cranking straight sections lead you down to a dramatic finish, as the tube bends around into a complete 360. As you shoot into the whirlpool, you’ll get sucked into a vortex of ocean-class spin. Feel the power of centrifugal force as you spiral around in a dramatic water stunt. Then, just as swiftly, you are shot out into a 65,000 gallon pool full of hundreds of swimmers.

Be sure to tell anyone who’ll listen that you just got sucked through the whirlpool of a tropical storm and lived to tell the tale. Then run right back up to the top and try it again.
