Wet N’ Wild Waterworld To Debut New Water Ride Tarantula Tailspin This Summer
A new water ride will be opening at Wet N’ Wild Waterworld this summer.
It’s called the Tarantula Tailspin, and park officials promise the brand new attraction will be a wet, wild, and visual experience.
Third New Ride in 6 Years
The addition of the Tarantula Tailspin marks the third big new attraction at the 60-acre homegrown family-owned waterpark in the last six years.
The 4-person raft ride the Condor’s Secret featuring a 30-foot drop and a near vertical wall made its debut in June of 2020, and prior to that it was the six-story high raft ride Jaguar Falls in 2017.
What Is the Tarantula Tailspin and When Will It Open?
The Tarantula Tailspin is a double rider slide that will send riders twisting and turning down high banking corners into dual 360-degree downward spirals. The new ride will also feature aqua lucent special effects adding a visual experience on the way down.
Construction of the newest attraction is currently underway and is expected to reach completion by Memorial weekend, according to the press release.
When Does Wet N’ Wild Open?
Wet N’ Wild will open for the 2023 season on Saturday, May 6. The park will be open weekends only in May and then every day starting Memorial Day weekend.
