Six Flags White Water Opens New Wahoo Racer Water Slide

The all-new Wahoo Racer water slide at Six Flags White Water has officially opened to the public as of this past weekend.  The attraction is being billed by the park as the "tallest of its kind," standing 60 feet above the ground.

“We are thrilled to debut Wahoo Racer, an exhilarating water slide for the entire family to race against one another to see who reigns supreme,” said Six Flags Atlanta Properties Park President Dale Kaetzel.  Wahoo Racer features six different mat racing slides which start with a twisted horizontal loop section before ending with several downward hills.  The mats are capable of sending sliders down at speeds of 40 feet per second.

The riders race down the course and cross the finish line, competing with one another to see who can get there first.  The above shot of the slide - from when it was still under construction - shows how the slide tower was nicely placed into an existing hill at the park.

Six Flags White Water is also giving guests more days to enjoy the park, announcing that they will stay open 11 additional days in September and October.
