There’s No Calm in the Eye of This Storm.

Go inside the eye of insanity in Tornado, a mind-blowingly original water adventure unlike anything you’ve ever seen. You can’t miss the gigantic blue and yellow checkerboard structure, truly one of the most original water slide designs in the world.

Once you grab one of the specially designed four-person rafts and climb seven stories up to the top of the tower, you’re ready to jump into the middle of the craziest full body twister on earth. You’ll also want to grab a few friends or family for the ride, if you’ve got friends or family along who are brave enough to give it a go.

First you’ll shoot from a height of 75 feet down a 132-foot tunnel. Right about now you’re traveling at 35 feet per second. But hold on tight, because you are about to be shot into an unbelievably huge 60-foot-wide funnel, where you’ll feel the full thundering power of the Tornado. You’ll swirl through the funnel like you’re being blown around by gale force winds. You’re rushing through with more than 5000 gallons of water, so the action is fast and intense. Your raft swishes up the impossibly high walls at full blast and you’ll be powerless to do anything about it.

So hang on while you slide wildly back and forth, until you’re shot out the bottom. Maximum thrills guaranteed!
