Alabama Adventure 2009

Alabama Adventure, which consists of Magic City USA amusement park and Splash Beach Water Park has announced a new attraction and concert series for the 2009 season.

Splash Beach Water Park will welcome UpSurge!, a $1 million slide on which "riders will experience 216 feet of flume sliding exhilaration before plummeting down and back up a vertical half-pipe ending in a refreshing splash pool of 25,000 gallons of water."

The half pipe aspect sounds familiar, and the flume before it makes this sound very much like a White Water West Boomerango slide, perhaps even like this one shown on their site.

Edit: I found a photo of what I'm thinking this could be, here's a Boomerango - just ignore the bowl slide in there too. (the park actually already has one of those)

The park will also have another year of big performances in their concert series, such as Raven and other popular acts.

Wow! the water slide looks really good I saw a video of it, and it does deliver some good amount of airtime on the first drop and on the bunny hop at the end as well.
