Mega Water Slide Complex Debuts as Tallest of Its Kind in the World at Six Flags White Water
60-Foot Wahoo Racer Now Open and Park Extends the 2016 Operating Season
MARIETTA, Ga. — May 20, 2016 — Consistently named one of the Nation’s Top Water Parks, Six Flags White Water announces opening of the all-new Wahoo Racer water slide at the South’s Most Thrilling Water Park. The high-thrill multi-lane water slide complex is the largest in the world and adds to the park’s impressive line-up of more than 50 slides and attractions.
Six Flags White Water is also announcing an extended season in 2016, adding 11 operating days in September and October. The water park will be open the entire week of Cobb County Schools Fall Break in September.
“We are thrilled to debut Wahoo Racer, an exhilarating water slide for the entire family to race against one another to see who reigns supreme,” said Six Flags Atlanta Properties Park President Dale Kaetzel. “The benefits of a 2016 combo season pass or membership to Six Flags Atlanta Properties just got better with the addition of Wahoo Racer and the expanded 2016 operating calendar.”
The two-tiered mat slider will send racers through an intense, snake-like stretch and then onto track-like style sprinting lanes, featuring:
- A tower standing 60-feet and easily visible from Interstate 75 where the park is located;
- Speeds of up to 40 feet per second;
- 7,200 feet of translucent water slide tubes; and
- Six aero-dynamic designed water toboggans for the ultimate competing thrill.
Returning for the fourth season – Dive-In Movies at the Atlanta Ocean Wave Pool. Every Thursday evening in June and July, guests can watch family-favorite movies on a massive 15 by 30 foot outdoor screen, while relaxing at the wave pool.
Six Flags White Water is now open for the 2016 season. The water park is open May 21-22 and then daily from May 26 through July 31. Weekend operation will then continue until October 2. For more information and the Dive-In Movies line-up, visit www.sixflags.com/whitewater.
