The Flatline Loop is made from SilkTek™Translucent, clearly the world's finest fiberglass and an IAAPA award-winning innovation. SilkTek™ is produced by a closed-moulded process resulting in a fiberglass waterslide which is smooth on both sides, visually appealing and requires little maintenance.
WhiteWater’s Translucent technology delivers exceptional clarity and strength, which is so translucent that spectators can watch as riders race along the waterslide.
The Flatline Loop also includes WhiteWater’s AquaLaunch to provide a thrilling start to the ride. Riders climb into the tower and wait nervously counting down to the 60 foot (18 m) freefall, then speeding into the looping waterslide at 26 feet per second (9 meters per second) before finally splashing into the shutdown lane.
In addition to the new Flatline Loop, the tower also includes two other WhiteWater signature waterslides - a 4-lane Whizzard mat racer and an AquaDrop.
