A brand new hydromagnetic LIM water coaster will open in 2015 at Raging Waters San Dimas, marking the first instillation of its kind in all of California. The new water coaster will stretch around 1,000 feet in length and be provided by Proslide Technology Inc.
Aqua Rocket will give riders a rush by combining the sensations of a classic roller coaster with the thrills of a water ride. Utilizing hydromagnetic technology and linear induction motors, Aqua Rocket with be able to send four person rafts uphill, over a series of four peaks and three drops at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour.
“We are excited for the newest addition and looking forward to Aqua Rocket becoming one of the most popular attractions in California.” said the park's General Manager Mark Whitfield. “Ranked by Travel Chanel and USA Today, Raging Waters is one of the Top 10 Water Parks in the U.S…. and it just got better!”
One of Raging Waters' sister parks under the Palace Entertainment brand is Splish Splash, which also added a water coaster two seasons ago. That ride was a huge success and I wouldn't be surprised to see Aqua Rocket be similar in size when it is completed. The more water coasters, the better, I say!
