Six Flags Over Texas is making a big splash next year with the opening of its new water coaster.
"Aquaman: Power Wave" marks the amusement park's 15th coaster, bringing visitors a water-thrill experience. The ride launches backward and forwards and races straight up a 148-twin track towers before plunging them straight down at 63 mph into a massive splash.
“Six Flags leads the industry in thrill ride innovation; it is part of our DNA, and we are taking thrills to the next level with the opening of Aquaman: Power Wave. We are excited to theme our latest unique and memorable ride around the iconic DC Super Hero,” said Park President Steve Martindale in a statement. “When the weather heats up in Texas, guests will swarm to this attraction for a water thrill ride experience like no other in the country.”
Riders are suspended at a 90° angle before hurtling them across the more than 700 feet of track.
Visitors will also have another option to cool down in the Texas heat next year. The park said Six Flags Hurricane Harbor plans to open an all-new slide complex called, Banzai Pipeline. Riders can choose three slides with multiple twists, turns and drops down a four-story tower.
The park also announced that it plans to stay open year-round on weekends, holidays and special dates in January and February.
