Ray Rush Construction Update

January 19, 2018
Check out what's happening on the site of Aquatica's newest attraction, Ray Rush! Construction is well underway for this massive new family thrill slide opening spring 2018. See it for yourself!
A few months ago we told you about Ray Rush, a brand-new attraction coming to Aquatica this spring. Well, it's time to give you an update and we are happy to report that construction is well underway!
Construction crews have been onsite for the past several weeks, demolition of HooRoo Run is complete and we have officially broken ground on our new attraction. Teams have already begun the process of pouring the massive cement foundations that will support this incredible new water slide.

A majority of the fiberglass slide pieces and galvanized steel supports have arrived on site and crews are beginning the complex task of assembling small ride sections which will soon be lifted into position. In no time at all, our guests will see these vibrant blue and green slide sections rise into place, some as high as 60 feet.

Check out the progress for yourself in our first construction update video!
