Harbor RockfordWaterpark’s 12th Attraction Makes Debut Memorial Day Weekend
Hurricane Harbor Rockford today debuts the much anticipated and uniquely designed Tidal Wave. This-state-of-the-art water attraction is the Midwest’s first and only tailspin waterslide, towering 43 feet above ground to give riders the experience of limitless wave riding.
Tidal Wave sends riders through a swirling, spinning descent from nearly four stories above ground. In addition—for the first time at any Six Flags park—the attraction features new, AquaLucent visual effects that create mind-blowing bursts of colors and dreamlike patterns,
intensifying the ride experience for guests.
“Six Flags is the undisputed leader in innovation and delivery of record-breaking rides, and our Hurricane Harbor waterparks are no exception,” said Six Flags Great America Park President Hank Salemi. “The new Tidal Wave waterslide is unlike anything our guests have ever experienced before. This unique attraction makes a great addition to the park as Hurricane Harbor Rockford’s 12th attraction.”
Tidal Wave highlights include:
• The Midwest’s first and only tailspin waterslide;
• A 43 ft. swirling, spinning descent;
• Three whirling high-speed turns; and
• Vibrant AquaLucent visual effects.
Tidal Wave will be Hurricane Harbor Rockford’s 12th attraction and will open to the public on May 29, 2021— the waterpark’s opening day of the season. Guests can make their reservations to visit and experience Tidal Wave at sixflags.com/hurricaneharborrockford.
