“The ride begins with an ascent of 235 feet, then rockets into an exhilarating rush of drops, rapids and slingshot climbs, racing to speeds of 30 mph, all experienced in the spray of splashing water,” Bengtson said. “This is beyond anything experienced before at a waterpark or a theme park.”
The breakthrough hydromagnetic technology uses linear induction motors to generate powerful electromagnetic fields that propel the steel-bottomed rafts uphill.
This new ride will be the largest single investment Splish Splash has ever made and is one of only a handful of such rides in the nation.
“We feel Bootlegger’s Run will immediately become the most popular ride at the park,” Bengtson added. “Splish Splash is already one of America’s greatest waterparks…and it just got better.”
