Two New High Thrill Rides Coming to Splish Splash Water Park

Summer 2018, the ultimate racing mat slide and an Aqua-Launch dueling slide!

New water slide at Splish Splash

Calverton, New York - December 19, 2017 –Splish Splash is pleased to announce two new waterslides coming to the park this Memorial Weekend 2018!  “Our guests continually ask for the hottest high thrill rides to be added to the park…these two attractions will deliver on both,” said Mike Bengtson, General Manager of Splish Splash.

Riptide Racer – The Ultimate Water Racing Slide
Four guests line across the top of the slide, preparing to race for the title of “Ultimate Riptide Racer” then head first on mats, guests are drenched as they charge down the enclosed flumes in a wetter-then-wet mad chase for the finish line! This super slick, mat slide is aerodynamically-designed to achieve maximum speeds.

Bombs Away – Aqua-Launch Dueling Slides
Bombs Away will feature two dueling 300-foot slides perched on a tower over 50 feet in the air. This slide combines the anticipation of the AquaLaunch capsule with the visual impact of looping translucent fiberglass.  Guests will stand in the launch capsule, waiting for the floor to drop. As the heart pounding countdown ends, the floor underneath opens and guests will rush through the intense tidal flow of the flat line loop.  The riptide will send guests free falling at 26 feet per second before safely making a final splash below. 

Splish Splash has been a family destination for over 25 years and continues to carry family needs as its number one priority. Experience the one and only hydromagnetic water coaster in New York, Bootlegger’s Run.  Bootlegger’s Run will take a four-person raft uphill, just like a theme park coaster, for a series of breathtaking drops, including one from nearly five stories high. Season Passes are on sale now as low at $62.99 online at for unlimited daily admission for the entire 2018 season. Season Passholders will be the first to experience these new attractions with exclusive ride time.
