Six Flags Hurricane Harbor to Open Banzai Pipeline
New Four-Story Body Slide Complex to Debut at Arlington Waterpark
Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, the largest waterpark in North Texas, has announced that Banzai Pipeline will open this Saturday, May 29. The new waterslide complex, the park’s biggest addition since 2014, boasts three unique body slides that will spin, splash, and swirl riders down nearly 300-feet.
After climbing the four-story tower, guests will choose their thrill on one of two enclosed tubes or an open-air slide. The slides feature bright, colorful fiberglass tubes, with the longest of the three slides specially designed to feature strobe-like visual effects. Banzai Pipeline will have a minimum height requirement of 40 inches, making the slides a perfect option for both thrill seekers and thrill seekers-in training.
“Hurricane Harbor is a staple in North Texas for waterpark fun, and we’re excited to open Banzai Pipeline to officially kick off the summer season”, said Six Flags Hurricane Harbor park director Tyrone Taylor. “This will be an excellent ride for families and thrill seekers alike.”
