We are thrilled to announce the opening of yet another World’s First ProSlide Complex in a Six Flags Waterpark. Six Flags pride themselves as "The gold standard of regional theme park entertainment. The parks are bigger and bolder than ever, offering cutting-edge, one-of-kind rides and so much more." Since 2003 with the initial installation of one of the first ProSlide TORNADOs™, Six Flags exemplifies the difference that ProSlide quality truly makes.

Riptide Bay, Six Flags Great America’s new 2011 summer expansion, demonstrates the continued trend-setting nature of this Corporation.

Plunge from either one of the six-story FreeFALLs™ with 80 degree angle drops, or the unmatched G-forces of the incredible looping SuperLOOPs™. The ProSlide SkyBox™ Launch Systems are designed and refined to produce an absolutely unmatched high speed drop-launch experience. Enter any of the four SkyBoxes™ through the transparent door, if you dare, inspect your fate through the transparent floor panel and take your last breath before being launched down the ride of your life!

The launch angle of the SkyBox™ has been carefully calculated in conjunction with the speed with which the floor drops out to provide the greatest sensation of weightlessness, while providing a very safe and consistent anticipatory launch.

The fun doesn’t stop there at Riptide Bay! The installation of North America’s First Outdoor TantrumALLEY™ spices up Water Ride entertainment for the whole family. "Wipeout" winds your 4-Person CLOVERleaf™ raft through the tunnel onto two separate funnels, both promising several oscillations before feeding your raft on through the ride.

Our continued partnership and friendship with the Six Flags Corporation has taken the water ride standard and industry to a whole new level, as they now have 14 TORNADO™ Installations accompanied by the largest number of iconic ProSlide attractions in the World.
