LAKE GEORGE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Great Escape’s popular outdoor water park, Splashwater Kingdom, goes Bigger, Better and Wetter in 2017! The Great Escape today announced plans to add Bonzai Pipelines, a pair of dueling water slides, to its 2017 lineup. The attraction will boast the park’s first body speed slides delivering unpredictable twists and turns and huge water park fun.
“Bonzai Pipelines will deliver an exhilarating water ride experience combined with a little friendly competition,” said Eric Gilbert, Six Flags Great Escape Resort president. “This multi-slide attraction will be a great enhancement to the water park and provide another awesome way to cool off on hot summer days. From our iconic thrill rides to our two children's areas and free water park, no other theme park in the area offers this level of entertainment for the entire family, and we are excited to continue enhancing our resort in 2017.”
Perched 30 feet in the air, guests will race through nearly 300 feet of banking twists and turns uniquely designed to provide an adrenaline-charged body slide experience. Bonzai Pipelines will feature two brightly colored twisting slides, becoming the 13th attraction in Splashwater Kingdom. The slides will complement the popular Alpine Freefalls in lower Splashwater Kingdom, offering thrill seekers the ultimate water park adventure.
More information about Bonzai Pipelines will be released during a hard hat tour of the attraction’s construction site in the spring of 2017.
