Schlitterbahn Galveston's MASSIV Ride Animation + Work Progress

Schlitterbahn Galveston is hard at work on MASSIV, the park's new 10th anniversary water roller coaster present which will be the tallest in the world when it opens this June.  New renderings, like the one above, of the attraction have also been released.  Here we can see how all of the 135 slide segments will come together to create the slide, which will stretch an impressive 926 feet long.

While the park isn't ready to say just how tall the slide is (that should come next month or so), plenty of other statics like 4 uphill blasts and a translucent helix section, are available.

Just recently released, this point of view ride on MASSIV shows all the thrill that await riders.  The ride ends with a big triple-down series of drops, which could provide a bit of air to those on board the rafts.

Finally, Schlitterbahn Galveston has been keeping tabs on the MASSIV construction work, with a somewhat recent blog entry detailing the progress so far.  The above photo shows how the park is building the ride in a pretty thin strip of land - but by going up very high they're getting a ton of slide in a small space!
