Hey Thrill Seekers,
I’m going to be taking a look into what you guys have voted as your favourite attraction of 2016 for each individual park. Starting with Aquatica.
Drum roll please….
Its the worlds longest drop tower multi-slide.. Ihu’s Breakaway Falls! The 80 ft tall, vertical slide doesn’t seem to have phased any of you thrill seekers as it has been voted as the favourite attraction in Aquatica.
This attraction boasts 4 different slides each with its own steep and very very high 360 degree spiral. You will need to prepare to be unprepared as once you step foot into of of the ‘breakaway boxes’ you have accepted your fate and will not know when you are going to drop vertically at a rate of 20 – 24 feet per second! If the fear of the unknown is too much for you to handle then you will always have to option to choose the fourth slide which will allow you to choose exactly when you drop – I think I would find it more difficult trying to force myself to push the button!
Second Place: Roa’s Rapids – four times faster than your average river rapids this definitely isn’t a ‘lazy’ river. Look out for the geysers and waterfalls!
Third Place: Dolphin Plunge – This 250 foot Slide consists of clear tubes immersed in a Commerson’s dolphin habitat where you can race with the dolphins as you whizz through the slide!
Fourth Place: Hooroo Run & Walhalla Wave – This 6 storey triple drop water slide is 7 foot wide and 250 foot high! This slide is sure to be a thrilling experience.
Fifth Place: Walk About Waters – Absolutely perfect for the kiddies! With plenty of water cannons, slides and rides your kids will be entertained for hours.
I can see why Ihu’s Breakaway Falls would be the favourite slide at Aquatica due to the extremely high thrill factor and the sense of achievement you feel once your wobbly legs carry you out of the ‘landing area.’ Good choice guys!
