DARIEN CENTER, N.Y. (WKBW) — If you're afraid of heights, the newest water slide coming to Six Flags Darien Lake is not for you.
Six Flags Darien Lake is excited to announce plans to add Wahoo Wave in 2020!— Six Flags Darien Lake (@SFDarienLake) August 29, 2019
This enormous slide will send you and 3 friends down a 30-foot drop before you glide across its one-of-a-kind WATER WALL, virtually defying gravity! #SixFlags pic.twitter.com/X1Mzy2C7iY
The park is adding "Wahoo Wave" in 2020. Six Flags installed the slide at its water park in Houston this year. That park's website describes the ride as six-stories tall.
You and up to three other riders get in a tube and begin the slide by twisting through a tunnel slide, gradually making your way down 30 feet. But then, you suddenly plunge another 30 feet into what's descibed as a "huge water wave wall." You slide vertically up it and gravity pulls you back down into a splash pool.
Six Flags Darien Lake did not immediately specify whether the slide would be ready to go for the opening of the park in 2020.
