Splash Away Bay waterpark at Quassy Amusement Park opens Category 5 Rapids – Extreme Waterslides.
Three new gigantic water raft rides with a combined length of more than 1,000 feet were constructed during the off season, bringing to 15 the number of slides in the lakeside complex.
The new slides were provided by ProSlide Technology, Inc., of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. ProSlide was the vendor for the existing 12 slides at the attraction, which was first introduced in 2003 as Saturation Station.
The largest of the three giant slides is Torent, a TantrumTWIST, also known as TORNADO, which accommodates two-person rafts.
