Schlitterbahn Galveston Teasing "Massive" New Ride for 2016

'Tis the season for teasing yet unannounced new attractions, at least for Schlitterbahn Galveston Island, located on Galveston Island in Texas.  The popular indoor/outdoor water park combination has released a new teaser video for an attraction that seems like it will turn plenty of heads next Summer when it opens.

Here's the new video:

This "massive" new attraction is still shrouded in mystery, though I think it is worth pointing out that they mention and show footage of Verruckt at Schlitterbahn Kansas City, which is the world's tallest waterslide.  Schlitterbahn had an extensive test and adjust phase for that ride and even made physical modifications to it, however, so perhaps one of the same scale isn't in the cards - but you never know.

If you watch through to the end of the clip there's some claw marks that slash down the screen, and the creepy eyes that are at the top of this story also flash.  Leads to a pretty obvious conclusion that the new attraction will be animal themed, perhaps to a type of jungle cat.  We'll have to stay tuned to hear more from the park about what this will be!
