Riding the Wave: Tsunami Surge—Conquering the Tallest Water Coaster at Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Chicago

Hold on tight, thrill-seekers! There’s a wave of excitement crashing through Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Chicago, and it goes by the name of Tsunami Surge. Tsunami Surge is the world’s tallest aquatic roller coaster!

If you live in the Midwest, this extreme water ride is practically in your backyard! Hurricane Harbor Chicago is conveniently located between Chicago and Milwaukee, making it a short drive from Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Indiana and Michigan.  

With thrilling slides, a surfing simulator, family-friendly splash zones and a gigantic wave pool, Hurricane Harbor Chicago proves you don’t need to drive to the coast to have oceans of fun.

Towering above them all is Tsunami Surge, a hydro-powered thrill machine that’ll have you screaming with delight and gripping the edge of your innertube in anticipation. 

This blog post is your backstage pass to the aquatic roller coaster extravaganza that’s set to redefine your idea of water park thrills!

Welcome to the Splash Zone

First things first: what exactly is a water roller coaster? Picture the climbing hills, breathtaking drops and hairpin turns of a roller coaster. But, instead of tracks, you glide through tunnels and open-air slides. On this aquatic roller coaster, you and your partner will ride sitting on top of an innertube as you twist and turn through the course—no seatbelts in sight! But you and your ride partner will have your very own set of handles to grab so you can lean into the turns and hold on for the thrill of your life! 

Tsunami Surge By the Numbers

Standing tall and proud, Tsunami Surge measures 86 feet, making it officially the world’s tallest water coaster.

If the dizzying heights aren’t enough to make your stomach do flip-flops, you’ll reach a top speed of 28 miles per hour. While that may not seem that fast in the comfort of your car, keep in mind that you’re at the mercy of an inner tube—exposed to the wind and water—as you fly around FIVE winding hairpin turns and experience THREE gravity-defying, uphill blasts.

Tsunami Surge also has five breathtaking drops and more than 950 feet of enclosed tunnels, inside of which you’ll experience mind-blowing bursts of color with AquaLucent visual effects. Vibrant stripes intensify the ride experience!

With its jaw-dropping length and adrenaline-pumping features, this is a water park thrill you won’t soon forget (note: you’ll need to be 48 inches tall to ride this hydro-powered rush).

Tsunami Surge isn’t just a ride—it’s a badge of honor, a bragging right you’ll want to claim. So, gather your fellow thrill-seekers, pack your swimsuits, and head to Hurricane Harbor Chicago.
