Paradise Plunge and Riptide

A Slippery Skyscraper for Daredevils.

Stare up at the skyscraping towers and brace yourself for the challenge. This slide is going to take some serious guts to master.

Paradise Plunge and Riptide guarantee an intense body-slide experience. Famous for the twisted, double flume and tremendous high speed thrills, you’ll whip downtown again and again. After the long climb to the top of the towers, you look down at the slick track below you. When you’re ready, you’ll shoot downhill at 40 miles per hour, zooming across airtime bumps and sliding turns that make you bank up the sides of the slide. You’ll never look at a high skyscraper again after you know what it’s like to fly down the side of one.
