A brand-new family raft slide will open at Aquatica, SeaWorld‘s Waterpark next spring. Called Ray Rush the new 60 foot tall “water adventure” from ProSlide will combine three unique slide elements.

Starting off, riders will be propelled at 33 feet a second in their rafts by water jets through the first of several enclosed tube sections. They will then swirl into a huge translucent sphere which spins the raft around the slide walls before entering another enclosed tube section. Finally, riders will drop into an open-air halfpipe that resembles the shape of a manta ray. Rafts will soar back and forth on the wings of the manta before entering the final enclosed tube section that ends with a splash.

The rafts will take up to 4 people and the 42 inch height requirement will enable famlies to ride together. It will be sited north side of the park next to Walkabout Waters. Construction will start in November.

Cathy Valeriano is a VP at Aquatica Orlando.  She says, “Ray Rush will offer a ride experience you won’t be able to get anywhere else in Florida. Aquatica will be the first waterpark in the state to combine these three unique elements into one attraction. Ray Rush is the perfect addition to our attraction portfolio. It will complement what is already one of the most family-friendly waterslide lineups in Orlando.”
