SeaWorld Aquatica’s 2010 expansion to include 4 new water slides

20 November 2009 by Los Angeles Times

The recently opened SeaWorld Aquatica water park in Orlando, Fla. will add four first-of-a-kind water slides in 2010, including a pair of inner-tube rides that go uphill with the help of a hydro-magnetic launch.
The twin Tornado Walls are V-shaped slides that start with a magnetic launch that shoots a six-person inflatable raft up the face of a vertical wall. One of the two launch sequences travels through a tunnel. After reaching the top of the water wall, the rafts race down the incline and along an uphill outrun with a small whoop-de-do hill.
Also on tap for Aquatica in 2010:
A 40-foot-tall Topsy-Turvy pipeline complex that features a pair of traditional looping water slides combined with a series of funnel-like attractions where riders swirl and spin before continuing on with their journey.
Riders on the two-person inner tubes can choose between two Topsy-Turvy tracks — a 285-foot-long run with two funnels or a longer 460-foot-long route with four funnels.
The four new water slides were on display this week at the ProSlide exhibit during the International Assn. of Amusement Parks and Attraction (IAAPA) convention in Las Vegas.
