Action River Adventure, Wahoo River, Opens at Six Flags America
UPPER MARLBORO, MD — June 28, 2018 — Six Flags America, D.C.’s Thrill Capital, today announced the debut of Wahoo River, an all-new, action-packed river adventure debuting at Hurricane Harbor waterpark for the 2018 season. Wahoo River opens to the public on June XX.
“Six Flags is recognized for the most innovative rides and attractions in the industry. Wahoo River boasts many unique water features and will be the new centerpiece of our beautiful waterpark,” said Park President Rick Howarth. “We add new experiences every year—Wahoo River is another thrilling attraction families can enjoy together, and provides another great reason to visit Six Flags America for the best in summer fun.”
The Bigger, Better, Wetter Wahoo River is 33% wider and more than 40% longer than the former Castaway Creek. The new attraction includes significant upgrades such as a zero depth entry that makes it convenient for guests of all ages to slip into the cool water with inflatable tubes. Friends and family members will have a blast as they float along the river, encountering wall sprayers, aqua archways, tippy water cones and a new wave generator. The journey continues under graceful water arches spanning the entire width of the river, as guests find even more surprises behind the rock waterfall, through the sprinkling pipes and under the bridge waterworks.
Additional Wahoo River highlights include:
• A wave generator that pulses waves every few seconds, propelling guests down the water channel;
• Colorful buckets dropping gallons of refreshing water from above; and
• Nearly 2,500 feet of new deck space with hundreds of deck chairs.
Diamond and Diamond Elite Members will have the first opportunity to experience Wahoo River, followed by Gold Season Pass Holders and then all Pass Holders, before it opens to the public on June XX.
