Six Flags St. Louis, the Coaster Capital of Missouri, has announced that Typhoon Twister, a massive new water attraction, is headed to Hurricane Harbor in 2018.
This hybrid, zero-gravity slide complex packs two extreme slide thrills into one jaw-dropping attraction.
“Six Flags St. Louis takes great pride in offering our guests new, ground-breaking rides and attractions every year,” said park president, Pete Carmichael.
“For 2018, Six Flags leads the way in innovation again as Typhoon Twister is unlike any other water attraction, giving riders two completely different thrill experiences in one very intense slide.
Typhoon Twister features four-person rafts that careen wildly into a 125ft-long whirlpool bowl that spins riders around 360 degrees before the bottom drops out, sending guests plummeting down an enclosed five-storey drop.
Storm chasers will then be propelled up a 45ft zero-gravity wave wall to experience moments of weightlessness before falling back down and shooting out into the splash pool below.
“This one-of-a-kind experience is another big reason why our guests will want to enjoy both the water park and the theme park during their visits next year,” Carmichael said.
Typhoon Twister, scheduled to make landfall in May 2018, is the latest addition to the 12-acre waterpark which is offered free with theme park admission.
