Water Parks: Raging Waters Debuts Dr. Von Dark’s Tunnel of Terror for 2010


Raging Waters San Dimas has announced the unveiling of their most thrilling new attraction yet, Dr. Von Dark’s Tunnel of Terror!

“It is a unique dark ride, themed around a scientist whose love of the darkness has driven him to pursuits that can only be described as diabolical, ” says Brett Petit, Sr. Vice President and Director of Marketing for Palace Entertainment. “At four stories tall, 300 feet long and with a flume tube that an elephant could walk through, it is going to be the “must-do” ride of the summer.”

Positioned face-to-face on new WhirlyWheel tubes, riders will spin freely while descending four stories in total darkness, accelerating them toward a giant funnel. Seemingly out of nowhere, the bottom drops out and riders are driven skyward into the upper hemisphere of the enclosed Tornado Flume. Held by centrifugal force, a series of 360-degree spins are preceded by back-to-back "vertical" banks. Riders are then jettisoned down the mouth of the funnel, down towards the certain doom that is projected on a special effects water curtain completely covering the only escape route. Dr. Von Dark’s Tunnel of Terror—the definitive answer to the ultimate question of courage: you’re not afraid of the dark, are you??

The park opens for the 2010 season in mid May. For more information contact Brett Petit at 949.797.9763 or by email,
