The ultimate water slide experience is the perfect balance of lightning-fast speed, ultra-slick motion, long straight sections, hard unexpected turns, breathtaking drops, and major elevation change. Here’s your one-stop destination for every component of what makes a slide run great. Like a giant winding snake, Big Bender unfurls from the top of the two-slide complex it shares with Whirlpool. How can you tell these two bad boys apart? It’s all in the stripes — Big Bender is yellow and blue. Big Bender’s shape is also a giveaway: it’s a curve-lover’s dream slide. Grab a raft and get ready to enter an all-enclosed tube for a very unpredictable ride. Big Bender will send you shooting down four racingly-fast straightaways, connected with hardcore hairpin bends. You’ll be hurtling towards these junctions so fast your whole body will slide up the wall as you bank the curve. There are also sudden steep dips to keep you on your toes. And the water under your raft isn’t the only way you’ll be getting wet on this one. Without warning, you’ll be blasted with curtain-like waterfalls on your way down. Take a look at your checklist for the perfect raft slide — Big Bender just hit every mark!
