I am talking about dry water rides at amusement park not a water slide at a water park but we have seen a disappearance of quite a few water rides in the past few years. Like flume rides, splash down rides, and raging rapids rides, like the new infinity falls is at SeaWorld Orlando. Pilgrims Plunge was at holiday world known as the tallest water ride in the world at like 150ft, then a similar ride at knotts berry farm considered as tall as niagra falls in Canada/new York called perilous plunge, both are now gone for good. But I understand the loading station still remains for pilgrims plunge. Shoot the Rapids debuted at cedar point in 2010 but only lasted a few years because I guess it was too much maintenance. That’s the thing a lot of these water rides are high maintenance so I guess that’s why I guess we don’t see many being built at theme parks anymore. But Infinity Falls Raft ride looks awesome at SeaWorld now has a drop which most raft rides don’t have. The Mack power splash and super splash rides look really cool I guess their suppose to be a mixture of a water coaster & water ride. So what I am asking is are we seeing a slow comeback of these water rides at dry parks but with new creation and design? Maybe making them taller like Pilgrims Plunge? Maybe we will see more theming in a water ride as well? Shoot the Rapids has rocks with water flowing down from it.Tweet
