Good thing it’s supposed to warm up by the weekend ! Darien Lake is set to open their latest water slide.

The RipCurl Racer opens to the public on Saturday, May 21st following a preview party the day before for special season pass holders.

The $1.5 million water ride launches six mat-riding competitors headfirst through side-by-side tunnels and then into separate racing lanes. The full ride only takes 24 seconds, but it’s 24 seconds of speed, compression and zero gravity moments.
