Hawaiian Falls Adding a Torpedo in 2010

The three Hawaiian Falls water parks located in Texas will all be adding a new thrill ride named the Torpedo in 2010.

I have to admit, I'd never really heard of Hawaiian Falls, but it's a small chain of three water parks located in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, all of which appear to have opened within the last decade. The parks were actually managed by Herschend Family Entertainment for a year before parting ways.

The Torpedo slides being added to the parks actually appear to use the same starting mechanism as on the AquaLoop slides, only these don't have the loop part. Described as twin 4 story speed slides, they will be the first of their type and combined represent a total investment of $2.6 million. All three will be provided by Whitewater West.
