The Amusing Ads Archive - Master Blaster Water Coaster

It's not too hard to find a water coaster these days, in fact this variant of water slide now comes in several different forms (including conveyor, water and magnetic).  Back in the early 1990s it wasn't so easy to bump into one, well, unless you were near Schlitterbahn in Texas.  Outside of that the uphill-water coaster was an oddity of sorts; aren't water slides supposed to travel downhill anyway?

Well two decades later that answer can be firmly answered as no, water coasters make going uphill on a slide as much fun as ever.  The Master Blaster line is now sold through WhiteWater, one of the largest companies in the water park industry, though the patents are held by Water Ride Concepts.

If roller coasters are King of the Midway, are water coasters Queen of the water park?
