Six Flags America announces the largest expansion in the history of its popular water park! The park's ultimate makeover includes three exciting new attractions, new restaurants, new shops and a facelift so dramatic, the park needed a new name - Six Flags Hurricane Harbor!
Making its public debut on Saturday, May 28, 2005, the new Six Flags Hurricane Harbor will feature two new, high-adventure family thrill rides - Tornado and Bahama Blast - and an all new interactive kid's section called Buccaneer Beach plus a fun, tropical Caribbean theme throughout the park.
Tornado, resembles an enormous 60-foot tall household funnel turned on its side, it begins 75 feet in the air as riders who are willing to brave the storm, journey down a 132-foot-long tunnel in 4-person cloverleaf-shaped tubes. These unique tubes navigate the inside of the tunnel, splashing back and forth on 5,000 gallons of swirling water. Bahama Blast features 4-passenger inner tubes that begin at the top of a 55-foot-tall tower. The wild, wet fun sends riders twisting and splashing along a 517-foot-long, triple-dip course as they maneuver through a spiraling slide of mammoth proportions.
Also new is a one-of-a-kind children's area with two pools just for toddlers and families! Buccaneer Beach will feature unique, interactive water activities, a pirate ship, a tiki water curtain, lush palm trees, whimsical slides, rain curtains, spouting interactive water features and a tipping bucket filled with gallons of water play.
As part of the ultimate makeover, Six Flags America is adding a unique feature never before seen in this part of the country - private water park cabanas! Guests will have the opportunity to rent a private cabana poolside for the day, enabling them to have wait service for food and beverages, personal shade structures and reserved seating at the area's largest water park, Hurricane Harbor.
Admission to Hurricane Harbor remains FREE with theme park admission.
