50-Foot Tall Waterpark Ride Coming To Wild Waves

Seattle, WA -- Continuing its trend of building water park attractions for 2005, Six Flags announced Zooma Falls, a new splash down attraction at Wild Waves and Enchanted Forest in Seattle.

The new family raft slide will tower above the water park at 50-feet tall and include a crossover curve out of the shoot, four turns and five acceleration zones culminating in a cool slide into the middle of the Konga River.

"Zooma Falls is the ultimate family experience in water slide fun!" said Cathryn Schmit, marketing director of Wild Waves and Enchanted Village. "Zooma Falls will be an exciting addition to the hugely popular Konga River and Konga River slides area, where people of all ages find excitement and entertainment."

Riders will brave the slide in a specially designed cloverleaf shaped raft engineered for safety and speed while accommodating riders of all ages. To begin, rafts will be picked up from a holding area next to the Konga River.

Groups will hop into each raft, one person sitting in each leaf of the "clover." This configuration lets guests face each other during the experience, giving them a front row view of their fellow riders' hilarious reactions! After finishing, riders can catch their breath by heading over to lazily float the Konga River.

Zooma Falls will be located inside Wild Waves in Konga River next to the Konga Slides. Construction will begin immediately and the ride is expected to open on May 28th.

Wild Waves and Enchanted Village will open its 28th season on May 28. A favorite local destination for families and thrill-seekers, Wild Waves and Enchanted Village is the region's largest theme and water park.

In 2003, the park welcomed Washington's biggest roller coaster and the first wooden roller coaster to be built in Washington State in 68 years, TimberHawk Ride of Prey. In 2002, the park added 10 new rides and attractions, including splash coaster Lumberjack Falls, thrill ride the TimberAxe and interactive water tree house Hook's Lagoon.
