ProSlide Technology Inc., an industry leader in water ride manufacturing and design, has collaborated with SeaWorld to present Riptide Race, a brand new competitive racing attraction at SeaWorld Aquatica in Orlando, Florida. At 67 feet high, this is the world’s tallest outdoor Dueling PIPEline racing ride.

The two companies have successfully worked together many times over the last few decades, and Riptide Race is the 56th quality ride that ProSlide has supplied to SeaWorld.

A fun racing experience

“SeaWorld is one of our longest-standing partners,” says Jeff Janovich, ProSlide Senior Vice-President of Global Strategic Partnerships. “Over three decades we’ve brought a multitude of innovative ProSlide water rides to all their parks – high-performance ProSlide rides that are still going strong!

“Now we’re thrilled to continue that track record by bringing the competitive experience of the largest outdoor Dueling PIPEline to their park at Aquatica Orlando. This is an iconic water ride by ProSlide that will give Aquatica Orlando’s guests an unparalleled racing experience and keep them coming back again and again for that first-place finish.”

Riptide Race features the company’s patented RallyPOINTS – strategically positioned sections of the flume where riders can see each other as they compete for a head-to-head racing experience. This is also heightened by the ride’s ergonomic start tubs and red/green start lights.

As well as being the tallest Dueling PIPEline in the world, this ride is also the first of its kind in Florida and the second in the US as a whole. It includes the latest generation of ProSlide’s ProSplash finish, alongside four RallyPOINT sections.

The popular Florida waterpark is already home to many much-loved ProSlide classics, such as Ehu’s Breakaway Falls (four SuperLOOPS), Omaka Rocka (two triple TORNADO 12), and Kare Kare Curl (a TornadoWAVE 60).

Earlier this month, ProSlide also unveiled a brand new ride, the MammothBLAST water coaster, at Atlantis Aquaventure in Dubai.
