Wet'n'Wild Las Vegas has announced the launch of ProSlide Technology’s award winning TORNADO waterslide.
The four-person raft attraction catapults riders from 36 feet in the air through a 110-foot tunnel before dropping them into the 45-foot-wide funnel, spinning them back and forth through swirling water before plummeting into the eye of the storm. As the raft sweeps up the Tornado wall crossing its centerline, guests experience zero gravity. After several oscillations, they descend through the exit tunnel.
Takuya Ohki, Wet'n'Wild Las Vegas general manager, said, "We were so happy to open the park in April, providing a longer season for guests; but I'm even more excited and thankful our construction partners have met our commitment to launch our new ride on time giving visitors a new way to enjoy outdoor water park fun, particularly with such an acclaimed slide as the Tornado. The Tornado's true funnel shape is patented by ProSlide and can't be replicated. It's the physics of the funnel shape that create an unparalleled experience for riders. With the addition of the Tornado and the other improvements we've added at the park this year, we expect another phenomenal season."
