Six Flags White Water opens new mega-slide for 2016

Six Flags White Water, the water park in Marietta that is a companion to Six Flags Over Georgia, has added a new attraction for 2016.

The park’s old racing slide will be removed and replaced by Wahoo Racer, a six-lane, snaking complex of slides. Instead of racing side by side, the six lanes start off together, then split apart into twists and turns before joining together toward the end for a sprinting finish.

The slide, the largest of its kind, will be nearly 60 feet tall, and its multicolored slide tubes will be easily visible from nearby I-75, according to Six Flags.

Wahoo Racer opened for Six Flags White Water’s 2016 season in mid-May.
