Holiday World Details New Water Coaster
SANTA CLAUS - Holiday World & Splashin' Safari has unveiled plans for its latest attraction. The Spencer County theme park says the $7 million Cheetah Chase will be the world's first full-circuit, launched racing water coaster.
Holiday World says its third water coaster will feature two ProSlide RocketBLAST-powered racing slides that total 1,700 feet of track. The coaster will travel 30 feet per second and will have the tallest RocketBLAST section in the world at 27 feet tall.
“Cheetah Chase is the perfect thrill ride for families. The three-person rafts allow families to race face-to-face, and the launch is the first of its kind,” Matt Eckert, president of Holiday World, said in a news release. “There’s nothing like this out there. With the addition of Cheetah Chase, Splashin’ Safari will now be the undisputed Water Coaster Capital of the world."
The new attraction is slated to open in the summer of 2020.
