Wild Waves and Enchanted Village to Introduce Mammoth New Water
Adventure - Zooma Falls
Exciting Raft Ride in Wild Waves, the Pacific Northwest’s Largest
Water Park, to Offer Splash Down Fun for the Whole Family
SEATTLE - March 3, 2005, Water park enthusiasts across the Pacific
Northwest will have a new reason to race to Wild Waves and Enchanted
Village this summer. Wild Waves, the Pacific Northwest’s largest
water park, is adding a new splash down attraction – Zooma Falls.
The giant family raft slide will tower above the park at five
stories, 50 feet, 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 clover leaf
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
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
