Water park creates new wild ride, first in 20 years | News
OKLAHOMA CITY – It looks like something from a Dr. Seuss story.
Wacky, topsy turvy and colorful, they’re no Thing 1 and Thing 2; these two massive water slides have names, the Ripcurl and the Pipeline Wave.
White Water Bay has been warming up their park for visitors, building one wild ride.
General manager David Riddles said, ”You’ll come down off a 42-foot drop about, then you’ll go up on the half pipe, there’s some zero gravity there.”
Both slides will share the tall tower to the top and there guests will split lines for the slide of their choice.
Single or double inner tube, you must be 48 inches tall to for these slides.
It’s more than a $1 million investment for the park, one that’s long overdue.
They haven’t had a new ride in more than 20 years.
Construction started back in early March and within two months they’ve made quite an amount of progress.
“A lot of hard work, weather permitting, people are working seven days a week into the night,” Riddles said.
This 3D rendering shows what it will look like by the time the park opens on May 18, as long as Oklahoma’s weather cooperates.
