Racing Water Slide Coming To Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom

Allentown, PA -- Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom will open AquaRacer, a new six-line mat racing water slide on Memorial Day weekend. The new water attraction is the second major addition in two consecutive years to Wildwater Kingdom waterpark.

The new AquaRacer slide will feature six lanes, each measuring 300-feet long. Six riders will take their places at their respective lanes with their mats in-hand and then it's a race to the finish line.

AquaRacer will be located near the Speed Slides and the Lily Pads. The addition of the racing slide brings the total number of water slides in Wildwater Kingdom to a record 22.

"We know that our guests visit us to experience all the fun and thrills of an amusement park," states Brad Nesland, Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom's vice president of maintenance and construction, "but we also recognize that the waterpark is what entices our guests on those hot summer days. This is why we have focused so strongly on Wildwater Kingdom over the last few years."

Also for 2007, Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom will introduce a smoke-free environment. The water park will be entirely smoke-free and at Dorney Park there will be designated smoking areas.

"At Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom, we strive to accommodate all of our guests," states Jim Yeager, vice president and general manager of Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom. "We've decided to require smokers to use designated smoking areas because of our continued commitment in offering a great experience to our guests and employees."

Dorney Park opens weekends starting Saturday, May 5, 2007. Wildwater Kingdom opens Saturday, May 26, 2007.
