Leading creator of water parks and thrill slides, WhiteWater, has provided a raft of new attractions at Cedar Fair’s Carowinds water park.
Formerly Boomerang Bay, the renamed Carolina Harbor features an AquaPlay RainFortress and a brand new slide tower complex.
Blackbeard’s Revenge is a hub for six winding and twisting waterslides – doubling the number of slides at the park.
“Carowinds was looking for a good balance between family fun and thrills at Carolina Harbor, ” comments Rob Decker, Senior VP of Planning and Design, Cedar Fair Entertainment Company. “ The recent additions of Blackbeard’s Revenge, a new six story tall water slide complex with three exhilarating attractions, and Seaside Splashworks, a multi-level play structure, does just that.”
A version of Blackbeard’s Revenge first appeared at Oceans of Fun waterpark in Missouri. Since then, similar configurations, all uniquely themed, have been successfully installed in number of parks where its popularity with guests earned it an Amusement Today Golden Ticket Award.
Seaside Splashworks is a beach-themed AquaPlay RainFortress featuring hand-carved dolphins and over 80 interactive elements including a 423-gallon tipping bucket.
“Our goal was to help Carolina Harbor bring the coast inland with Seaside Splashworks, ” said Teri Cantin, Landscape Architect and Lead Designer of Seaside Splashworks, WhiteWater. “Theming is a magical way to take a product that can be found in waterparks throughout the world and make it truly unique for that one park. We are happy to have worked with Carowinds to deliver a distinctive AquaPlay that will ignite the imaginations of thousands of kids, mums and dads this summer.”
