What's New at Water Country USA?
- In May 2014, Water Country USA opened the Colossal Curl™, a new family thrill attraction, a high-adrenaline, action-packed water slide adventure. The Colossal Curl features a funnel element that will swish and swirl up to four riders aboard a cloverleaf-shaped raft before whisking them through the slide’s enclosed tubes on their way to a wave element that hurtles them high above the park. The unique combination of funnel and wave thrill elements, makes Colossal Curl the only attraction of its kind in North America.
- New in 2013, Vanish Point, this thrilling attraction supplies two ways to drop out of sight. The crest of this 75-foot tower challenges guests with two wave paths. They can step into a skybox and take a plunge when the floor drops out beneath their feet, or they can get horizontal on a 300-foot speed slide that drops them straight down as soon as they enter.
