With temperatures continuing to soar across the USA, Americans are looking to world-class waterparks, such as NRH2O in North Richland Hills, Texas, for a reprieve from the heat. WhiteWater has supplied NRH2O’s guests with an awesome solution with the Viper, part of its MEGAtubeTM Series.

NRH2O expands its current mix of exciting attractions this summer with the world’s only Viper. Featuring an enormous 20 foot (6.1 meter) diameter, this attraction strikes at the heart of excitement with its multi-sensory overload of twists, high-banking turns and heart-stopping drops! 43-feet tall, 430-feet long and built for 2 to 4 person rafts, the Viper is the ride for thrill-seekers looking to share an unforgettable experience together.

"NRH2O and our guests are thrilled with the Viper! We selected the Viper based on a customer survey which indicated that our guests wanted a ride that allowed them to share the experience with their family and friends", states Chris Swartz, NRH2O’s Park Manager.  "Not only is it a family-sized experience but its high capacity shortens wait times, which also makes our guests very happy. Another unique feature is that when the waterpark is open in the evenings, the Viper is not to be missed, with its exciting lighting and sound effects".

This MEGAtubeTM attraction joins NRH2O’s popular list of attractions including an AquaPlay RainFortressTM called "The Splashatory", custom-themed to bring out the mad scientist in kids of all ages. Other attractions include an award-winning Master Blaster®, exciting Body Slides as well as a Children’s play area. NRH2O is known for its leading-edge theming and WhiteWater is proud to assist NRH2O in continuing to bring scientific fun to life for kids of all ages!
