New Rides, More Fun, Same Price!
Fishkill, NY — Mega Funworks Inc., dba SplashDown Beach Waterpark, is proud to announce the completion of its 2013 expansion with today’s opening of the Arctic Plunge Racer.
Arctic Plunge is the first of 6 new attractions to be completed as part of the Arctic Adventure complex. This competitive, multi-lane, headfirst Mat Racer reaches 5-stories tall and is one of America’s hottest Waterpark attractions! Its precisely engineered curves are strategically placed to create positive pressure for maximum acceleration as riders exit the 360° horizontal loop. Riders are launched into a head-to-head drag race to the bottom, flying over vertical curve humps, experiencing weightlessness, and gaining even more speed before the smooth deceleration run-out. The experience will leave the entire family talking about who the fastest rider was!
In addition to the ride that opened today by ProSlide Technology, the Mega Funworks team collaborated with Zamperla Rides and HIT Entertainment to introduce Dizzy’s Water Whirler, completed just prior to the Park’s opening in May. Located at the Bob the Builder Splash Works™ attraction, the Water Whirler accommodates up to 24 guests at one time and features 30 interactive water elements, currently the only of its kind in the world and first in North America.
“We’ve added something for everyone this year, from toddlers to adults to enjoy with Dizzy’s Water Whirler and Arctic Plunge. This has been our largest single expansion at SplashDown Beach since we purchased it in 2004, creating a true family destination for summer fun,” say owners Shelley and Steve Turk.
The $12 million expansion received Planning and Zoning Board approvals earlier this year and will be fully built-out in subsequent phases.
