Wet ‘n’ Wild Gets Wilder Slides!
Universal Parks don’t mess about do they?
As they slog away to turn on the magic at Universal Studios’ Diagon Alley for this summer, guests can also cool off at the Wet ‘n’ Wild Park just a few yards down the road with the help of a brand new mat slide that replaces the old Bubba Tub in the Surf Lagoon area of this classic water park.
The four lane slide is a twisting tube ride that send forward facing riders hurtling downwards on their mats.
Six story’s tall, riders quickly zip up to 15 feet per second (just over 10mph).
If you think that in’t too fast, think again! Dubbed the ‘Aqua Drag Racer‘, new water slide will be the fastest and tallest racing slide of its kind in Orlando!
Built by Proslide Ontario, and expected to open for the Summer of 2014!
Since Universal bought a huge chunk of land that Wet N Wild previously leased, this is the first indicator of any major investment in the 37 year old water park.
Great news for its many many fans!
