Aquatica water park debuts new Omaka Rocka water slide

in SeaWorld, Theme Parks

A new waterslide at SeaWorld Orlando’s Aquatica water park has opened. It’s called Omaka Rocka and it features tubes and half-pipe funnels that send riders frontward, backward and climbing the walls.

Officially, the slide is described as “a taste of half-pipe, near-vertical thrills previously experienced only by daring skateboarders and snowboarders.” As with most massive waterslides, Omaka Rocka climaxes in a big splashdown.

To have a chance to enjoy the twists and turns of Omaka Rocka, guests must be at least 48″ tall and under 250 lbs.

Here’s a video released by SeaWorld of Omaka Rocka in action:

And a couple of snapshots of the new waterslide, the second of which includes former Hootie and the Blowfish frontman turned country singer Darius Rucker:
