New Addition to SFWoA

Wednesday, March 26, 2003 12:48 PM
I was just curious as to if anyone knows anything about the new water slide complex they are adding to SFWoA. Also, are there any pictures of the installation? Thanks.

Did you try the park's website? Or Coasterbuzz News?

Yeah I have looked at the Coasterbuzz news. The last post hasn't been made there in over a month. There aren't any new updates. I don't want to know facts about it, but rather how far a long they are on building it. I couldn't find any pictures and the Six Flags site has nothing.

Zak - Try here.

No offense, but if you'd just search a little harder I suspect you'll find your answers.

It was all on the six flags page....

NEW THIS YEAR! TWO new water slide towers, Hurricane Mountain and Shark Attack featuring ten new water slides bringing the water slide total 38 water slides ranging from mild to wild.

Hurricane Mountain will take the title as the largest water slide complex featured at a North American theme park. At ten stories high, it towers as the tallest complex in Ohio! Guests will break most city speed limits as four inner tube and three traditional body slides take water warriors racing at speeds reaching 27 mph. According to custom slide manufacturer, Whitewater West, this is the fastest slide tower they have ever designed. When laid end-to-end these fiberglass slides are more than one half mile long! Guests travel down the colorful, coiling chutes, and then splash in a cool pool of sparkling blue water.

Shark Attack features three wicked slides, each more twisted than the next. At over four stories tall and 300-feet long, these wild and wet water slides will loop, curve and wind their way into the hearts of water slide lovers everywhere.

They haven't gotten very far with the construction yet. It's just a big pile of dirt right now. We haven't had the best weather this year up till this past week or so.

Thanks Sam, but that wasn't what I was looking for. I wanted to know how far along they were on building it, and also what pictures anyone has taken. Dave, thanks, that's exactly what I was looking for. I was going to head up and take some pictures but seeing that it's just a pile of dirt that has changed my mind.

Come on lets not jump on a person for asking a question; that results in a thread titled "This site sucks" appearing just like it did a little while back. Any person seeking knowledge on this site means they arent GP and that my friends is a very good thing :)

Nonsense. It's your job to find stuff for him.

Jeff, I already had tried there. I knew exactly what they were building, I just couldn't find anywhere how far along they were. Why are you guys so upset that I asked that question?

I think the way it was phrased, some people took it as this was the first you heard of the additions, and wanted to know what they were, instead of wondering how far along they were. I have to admit, that's what I thought too, but I would never jump a person for asking a question, I would just try to help them get their answer. However, I had no idea how far along they were either. Dave72 was extremely helpful.

Okay, maybe I worded it wrong, I apologize. Thank you though, because that website was very helpful as to seeing where they are on construction with the "big pile of dirt" and the footers they have all ready put in. I would have thought they would have been farther along than what they are.

I understood what you were asking from the beginning, but back on subject. I went by today and it would appear as though they are getting ready to pour concrete now. It is difficult to tell because they mounded the excavated dirt along the fence where they are working so it made a wall of dirt.
