Do you enjoy water rides? How about roller coasters? If so, check out this all-new type of attraction coming to a theme park soon.
Family adventure begins with a splash at the all-new Catapult Falls! Experience the rush of the world’s first launched flume coaster and the only vertical lift in North America. Feel the anticipation, and then hang on tight as the world’s steepest flume coaster drops you over the falls and into the rapids. This is unlike any expedition you’ve taken before.
The first-of-its-kind ride combines the thrill of a launched roller coaster, the excitement of a vertical lift elevator that lifts riders above the theme park, and a water flume ride with the steepest drop, to produce multiple rushes of adrenaline as well as moments of exciting splashes to cool guests down.
Details on This Cool New Attraction
Eleven boats, each holding eight riders, catapults through the launch at speeds of 30 feet per second. This allows riders to feel the rush of a coaster while experiencing the rocking and swaying of riding on a track of water. Once at the peak of the ride, guests will experience the world’s steepest drop in a flume attraction. Angled at 53 degrees, the chute plummets riders into a watery splashdown at over 37 miles per hour. The ride’s duration will total out at over five minutes.
After winding through a series of twists and turns, Catapult Falls uses a state-of-the-art elevator, the only one on the continent in an attraction of this kind, to lift guests up seven feet per second to reach a height of over 55 feet. The views don’t last long as the ride prepares guests for the world’s steepest plunge.
