Tamauta Racer, All-New Spring 2018
Taumata Racer, named for a famous hill in New Zealand, is slated to open in spring 2018 at Aquatica San Antonio. It’s a high-speed waterslide where riders zoom downhill head first on foam bodysurfing mats. It’s also a competitive ride with six side-by-side lanes. Taumata Racer launches riders in an entry tunnel that makes a swooping, 180-degree turn, then straightens out to make two additional descents over the 375-foot slide length and 55-foot drop in under 10 seconds.
A first of its kind in North America, this family clover-tube ride sends guests soaring through watery waves to the top of a zero-gravity wall, giving riders the sense of weightlessness.
Guests ride using double or single tubes and select one of two different slides, both of which send riders spinning inside of a large bowl before their twisting, turning descent.
The park’s signature attraction takes four-seat rafts down twists and turns to an underwater grotto, where you come face-to-fin with stingrays and tropical fish. It’s the only ride of its kind in the world.
One of the park's most exhilarating rides, guests choose single or double tubes for their descent down a 48-foot tall ride, which features open and closed slides, water curtains, and lots of twists, turns, and drops. In New Zealand, "hooroo" means "goodbye" but get ready to yell it quickly. By the time your raft is heaved over the edge, you'll speed to the bottom before you can say hello again.
Thrill-seeking guests experience speed and high wall turns down one of two body slides, each more than 450 feet long.
Guests ride single tubes down one of two distinct, heart-pounding slides. For the adventurous rider, one of the tubes is pitch dark.
