Two US attractions are planning to unveil a new combination water slide-thrill ride on Memorial Day Weekend, which takes place at the end of May next year.

According to press reports Noah’s Ark waterpark in Wisconsin and Jay Peak ski resort in Vermont have confirmed the installation of manufacturer WhiteWater’s AquaLoop ride, which has taken Europe and Asia by storm.

Riders on the gravity-defying attraction climb up a 55ft tower and into a transparent capsule. As a trap door in the floor opens, riders plummet down a 40ft vertical drop and around a near-inverting loop.
