Bootlegger Progress at Splish Splash

© Splish Splash
It wasn't too long ago that Long Island's Splish Splash water park announced Bootlegger's Run, a new hydromagnetic water coaster, as the park's star 2013 attraction.  Fast forward a bit, and the new ride is currently being constructed at the park.

Seen above, the ride's final color scheme matches the patriotic red, white, and blue that was shown in the concept art.  More photos of the ride being built can be seen in this gallery from the park, but they're a bit outdated so I wouldn't be surprised if the ride is structurally complete at this point.

I also wanted to share this neat infographic the park released on Bootlegger's Run.  There's some additional details of the attraction in there, including a specific course length of 983 feet and a maximum height of 47 feet.

Splish Splash is a part of Palace Entertainment, which owns water parks all across the nation.  Hopefully this instillation of a Proslide water coaster will just be the first of many!
