Wild Waves Announces Two New Rides

Visitors to Washington's Wild Waves theme park will find two new attractions when they visit this Summer.  The theme park previously announced that Holiday with Lights will return this Winter, not having been seen at the park since 2004.

For guests not wanting to wait till then for a new attraction, the park will be adding both a new ride and a new pay-extra attraction for the busy Summer season.

The Soaring Eagle Zip Line attraction will take passengers across a 700 foot flight above the park.  The cars will be able to seat up to two people at a time, but riders can choose to go it alone as well.  There will be an extra $10 fee for the Soaring Eagle.

It looks like this will be provided by the company that former S&S Worldwide owner Stan Checketts has set up, Soaring Eagle Ziplines.

The second attraction is even more unique, Downhill Tube'n is a simulated snow rafting course.  No snow or even water is needed or guests to head down the slope.

According to the park this will be provided by Neveplast, a company that has made several of these style of rides in the past.  From a video on their website it looks like you can get some nice speed depending on the course!
