Raging Waters San Jose announces the ProSlide SuperLOOP™ for their 2011 Season!

"Bombs Away" debuts in 2011 at Raging Waters, making it the first West Coast installation of the ProSlide SuperLOOP™! 

The "Bombs Away" experience begins when a rider steps into the enclosed ProSlide SkyBox™ positioned nearly five stories above Raging Waters! The capsule door is sealed and the countdown begins! The rush of adrenaline kicks in as the trap floor drops, plummeting the single rider down into the narrow 32" enclosed tunnel reaching speeds of up to 38 feet per second. Powerful G-forces glue them to the side of the wall the entire way around the tight 360 degree SuperLOOP™ and then riders experience another quick drop before the watery runout brings them to a stop at the bottom.

The ProSlide SuperLOOP™ is the smartest looping water ride on the planet! Riders go from top to bottom in eight seconds flat with no possibility of stopping in the middle! Like many of our other speed slides, the ProSlide SuperLOOP™ has no weight restrictions so anyone over 48" can ride it!
