ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Florida’s first and only dueling racer is opening at Aquatica in April.
Riptide Race is an “adrenaline-pumping waterslide race that pits teams against each other in a splash to the finish line,” the water park said.
Guests can challenge their friends and family on a fast-paced, high-speed adventure.
“We are thrilled to introduce Riptide Race, an experience you won’t find anywhere else in Florida. Aquatica is the first waterpark in the state to have a dueling racer and we know our guests are going to love the fun of challenging their friends and family in a race to the finish,” said Kyle Miller, park 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. Health and safety continue to be a top priority for our parks, and we can’t wait to see our guests enjoy this new ride.”
Riptide Race is the world’s tallest dueling racer waterslide.
Riders will start atop a 68-foot tower with a two-person raft before racing down the 650-foot slide.
The ride opens April 3.
