Six Flags Darien Lake to Open Thrilling New Waterslide, Wahoo Wave
Six-Story Attraction to Debut in 2020
Six Flags Darien Lake, The Thrill Capital of New York State, is excited to announce the plans for a massive new slide to its waterpark. Wahoo Wave and its one-of-a-kind water wall will boost the park’s already robust roster of heat-beating attractions. This adrenaline-packed adventure sends four riders into near vertical motions to experience extended hang times and zero g-forces. Riders plunge 30 feet straight down before sweeping up at high speeds as they arc across the top of a massive water wall, virtually defying gravity before descending into a refreshing pool below.
“Six Flags continues to invest to make the park bigger, better and now wetter than ever with the introduction of a world class water park attraction, Wahoo Wave,” said Park President Chris Thorpe. “This massive attraction provides cool thrills and spills for the whole family.” /p>
At 60 feet tall, the Wahoo Wave is one of the park’s tallest water rides. Riders first go through a hairpin turn, then get swept up into a corkscrew turn. Before they see it coming, the riders are hit with a three-story drop – which is destined to be the riders’ favorite part.
Wahoo Wave slide complex features:
- Near vertical motions on a four-person tube;
- A 30-foot plunge straight down;
- Massive water wall; and /li>
- A refreshing catch pool.
Construction on Wahoo Wave will begin in 2020 and it is expected to be complete when our waterpark opens in May.
