Towering more than six stories above the finish line, the SplashRally™ “starting gate” channels riders into six parallel slides. The figure-eight layout allows the slides to be of equal overall length, while adding the thrill of banked turns and tubes passing each other as they race down the track. A mechanically controlled launch system starts all lanes simultaneously for a fair race. Once the race starts, a strategically placed water cannon douses riders on the way down the 604-foot run, riveting through twists, turns and drops. Racers pass under a footbridge to reach the finish line and all except the winning rider are drenched by a final water fall. Everyone drops into an eight-inch deep runout before final race times are displayed overhead.
