Schlitterbahn Reveals Worlds Tallest Water Coaster POV Video
First it was the longest river ride, then the longest action river ride, then the tallest waterslide. Now, Schlitterbahn is building the WORLD’S TALLEST WATER COASTER and putting it in the award-winning Schlitterbahn Waterpark on Galveston Island!
In anticipation of the opening of the world’s tallest water coaster, park officials at Schlitterbahn Galveston Island released a computer generated ride video and teaser video. The ride video, which is based on detailed CAD drawings of the actual ride as well as photos of the Galveston park, provides a guest’s perspective of what riding the world’s tallest water coaster will be like.
“We can’t wait to ride MASSIV,” said Ron Sutula, Schlitterbahn Galveston’s general manager. “This ride video is the closest we can get until we open the ride in early June.”
MASSIV will have four uphill sections, an enclosed tunnel section, translucent turn, and triple drop finale. At 926 feet long, it’ll be the longest slide at Schlitterbahn Galveston. The official height won’t be revealed until May.
Construction is moving along quite fast and as long as everything keeps going as planned, we should see this baby testing before too long! Hopefully they follow suit with the reservation system that they used when Verruckt opened to insanely long lines.
