MARIETTA, Ga. - This summer is going to be hotter than ever, thanks to a new attraction at Six Flags White Water that’s sure to result in some heated competition among visitors.
Wahoo Racer, which officially opened May 21, features a half-dozen unique slides on which guests can race against each other. The attraction stands 60 feet tall, and racers slide on aerodynamic toboggans (facing head-first and stomach-down toward the finish) which can reach speeds of up to 40 feet per second. After twisting through brightly-colored tubes, racers will be ejected into individual racing lanes – until one crosses the finish line first. Wahoo Racer replaces 100 Meter Splash, and joins more than 50 other sides and attractions at the Marietta water park.
