SeaWorld's Aquatica Orlando, is racing into 2020 with a one-of-a-kind new park attraction that will thrill park-goers - Florida's first-ever duelling water slide, Riptide Race.


Starting atop a 68-foot tower, riders will be able to grab a raft and take their marks in side-by-side racing lanes at top speeds. Each raft holds a team of two, so every rider will have a partner as they plunge toward a hopeful victory. Plus, Riptide Race rafts feature low walls to ensure full view of the competition. Duelling face-to-face, racers will navigate tight loops and accelerations through indoor and outdoor sections. Itís a marathon to the finish through nearly 650 feet of splashing slide.

"Riptide Race will offer a ride experience you won't be able to get anywhere else in Florida. Aquatica will be the first waterpark in the state to have a thrilling, and more importantly, duelling water slide," said David Heaton, Aquatica Orlando vice president. "Riptide Race is the perfect addition to our attraction portfolio, complementing what is already one of the most family-friendly waterslide lineups in Orlando."

Riptide Race will have a height requirement of 42 inches (107cm) to appeal to families with children, and the new slide will be conveniently located on the north side of the park next to Banana Beach Cook Out.
