Almost Time To Hit The Falls

© Schlitterbahn

Schlitterbahn New Braunfels is nearing completion of their massive new project for 2011, named The Falls.  Featuring 3,600 feet of whitewater tubing, the attraction is the longest of its kind in the world.

Guests will enter the channel via several no-wait locations, and do not even have to travel uphill on their own - the massive AquaVeyer will take care of that for them.  The screw pump system (seen above) carries water up to the highest elevation - and as we know it's all downhill from there.

Schlitterbahn has posted some amazing aerial photos of the expansion on their blog.  They're a must-see in my book - it's astonishing to really see just how long this experience is!
