New "Rockin Ray" Half Pipe Slide Opens at Myrtle Waves

2015 marks the 30th anniversary for Myrtle Waves Water Park, located in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and the park is celebrating with a brand new attraction.  Named The Rockin Ray, the giant half-pipe slide has been painted bright pink and stands nearly 40 feet tall.  Those two factors alone make the new attraction stand out, but the thrills it provides has visitors excited to be among the first to take a spin.

The Rockin Ray utilizes two person rafts that start the experience by dropping down a steep plunge and into the half-pipe.  The slippery walls of the slide allow rafts to shoot high up on the opposite wall, giving riders a feeling of negative gravity.  The rafts slide down and up each side of the wall until they are dropped into the splash down pool.

Myrtle Waves Water Park just held the grand opening of the slide, which is the first major slide addition to the property since 2008.
