Generic stuff, nothing earth-shattering. Perilous Plunge shouldn't be the tallest water ride though; Pilgrims Plunge owns that stat.

It always seems like these writers of theme park articles always get stuff wrong. They called the new coaster at SFMM Green Lantern: First Light and claim Scorpion's Tail is America's first looping waterslide and getting the tallest water ride wrong that you mentioned.

In their defense, Noah's Ark does market Scorpion's Tail as the country's first "nearly-vertical waterslide loop." But that's certainly not an excuse to skip all fact-checking.

More importantly, that marketing line is pretty elaborate. :)

I call Cedar Point my home park even though I live in the Chicago Suburbs.

Don't give Noah's a pass. Their marketing brochure this year advertises Black Anaconda as the longest water coaster.
