[KHTS] – Six FlagsHurricane Harbor’s newest thrill ride debuted over Memorial Day weekend. The water park invited VIP guests to the first official launch of the Bonzai Pipelines on Monday.
“It was just a beautiful weekend to enjoy the waterpark,” said Hurricane Harbor Spokeswoman Sue Carpenter.
Members of the Santa Clarita Special Olympics Swim Team were the first to try the slides, which feature a unique launch capsule with a trap door that drops guests into the slide.
One of the pipelines is an open side with an 80 degree vertical drop and the other is a closed slide with twists and turns.
The straight drop ride lasts for about 10 seconds, Carpenter said, while the twisting slide continues for approximately 30 seconds. The two slides are located on Taboo Tower.
“You step into a capsule, hear a heartbeat and a countdown, then the floor drops out beneath you, and your on your way,” she said.
Both slides launch from a platform that is six stories tall, and the longer looping slide is 650 feet long.
Hurricane will also feature Dive-in Movies this summer, every Friday at 6 p.m. in the Forgotten Sea wave pool. Guests can suggest movies for this event via Hurricane Harbor’s Facebook page.
Other additions to the water park include new food location the Crows Nest, an enlarged Cabana Cove area and Pirates Paradise, an area for live island music that will feature different bands throughout the summer.
