Holiday World today announced its new attraction for the 2020 season — a flat-launched racing water coaster for its Splashin' Safari water park.Santa Claus, Indiana's
Cheetah Chase will be the park's third water coaster, following Mammoth and Wildebeest, leading the park to declare itself the "water coaster capital of the world."
Canada's ProSlide Technology is designing the ride, which will use its RocketBLAST system to power the ride. ProSlide has designed the industry's top water coasters, including the award-winning Krakatau Aqua Coaster at Universal Orlando's Volcano Bay.
Here's a fly-around concept video, followed by a side-by-side POV.
Cheetah Chase will feature two slides that will race in multiple locations during the ride. Each slide also will feature two of ProSlide's FlyingSaucer elements. The right slide will be one foot longer than the left, at 852 feet to 851, and the ride's top speed will be just over 20 mph.
"Cheetah Chase is the perfect thrill ride for families," Holiday World President Matt Eckert said. "The three-person rafts allow families to race face-to-face, and the launch is the first of its kind. There's nothing like this out there."
Update: To celebrate the announcement, Holiday World is running a contest to give away two 2020 season passes.Tweet
