I wouldn't mind seeing a 'bowl' type slide, water coster, or although close to 'tornado'- a tornado24 by proslide like the one at Great Wolf Lodge in PA-

That ride was loads of fun. Just something that is fun and guaranteed to get wet on. I also wouldn't mind seeing drop capsule rides, although body slides are not my preferred type of slide.

Definitely think next addition should go by Big wave racer or the slides by the kids play area since that is the only slide complex on that side of the park.

A water coaster like Typhoon at SFNE would be an amazing addition. After years of hype I was still very impressed with the water coaster concept, it was a ton of fun and they are quite versatile.

I'd like to see a water coaster, something like Wildebeest or Mammoth at Holiday World.

I think Splash Water Oasis should be move to Hurricane Harbor as a "new" attraction beside big wave racer, that attraction is so annoying and makes no sense in the park.

They need a drop box slide. Remember they were going to install them on The Falls but instead they got that joke-of-a-slide King Cobra. A lot of water parks are installing them the past few years so I think it's time HH joined them

I'd like to see us get one of these multi-featured towers and would like to see it built to the left of Big Wave Racer.

I like that idea. Especially if they work it like the mat slides... One guard/op at top and one guard/op at bottom... Let they go all at the same time also. I would seem like the lines would go a lot faster then.

 

what I meant was have them all on one level next to each other like the mat slides and end up finishing up next to each other.

^ That's an interesting ride! I wonder if you have two riders that are different weights, do they catch up with each other or even collide?

LOL I don't remember what happens when you drop a quarter in one side of those change collecting stations and a dime in the other. Does the quarter catch up? I will have to make a trip past the mall and try.

Screamscape posted about a stand up waterslide. It looks interesting and would give Hurricane Harbor something no one else in the US has but I don't know if it would work out well for Hurricane Harbor or any park in the US for that matter since it looks like it could be a lawsuit waiting to happen if someone fell off the side or slipped.

To be perfectly honest (and I mean this in the most respectful way possible), too many people in America would be too large to ride a water slide of that style. The rider shown is fairly trim and only had a few inches wiggle room on each side.

Something like this

 

Hurricane%20Mountain%20Aerial.jpg

 

 

100ft Tall with 3 Tube and 4 Body Slides

 

 

A Proslide Rocket slide would be 2nd place.

From Geauga Lake???

I have always preferred "mat slides" like "Big Wave Racer". More speed, and more fun. Tube slides get boring real quick. But i want a "not so lazy" Lazy River, something with some rapids like Schlitterbahn has.

What I would like to see is the removal of the Qbot system and installing a decent management team to run the park better.

The towers like that at Hershey, people get into arguments on who is waiting for which slide. Longer lines for one slide will block the stairs so nobody can get by to a shorter wait slide. Hershey had to add another stairway to partly fix the issue.

Hurricane Harbor closed on Sunday (AGAIN!) with capacity crowds. It seems like it has happened more this year than ever. It would be great if that translated into something new soon for HH.

I was going to go again this Sunday but since I was there last Sunday and it hit capacity then also, it was not enjoyable at all any more.

 

I would be highly upset if I was just bring my family up there for 1 day, paid full price for tickets and being able to only go on 1 or 2 slides.

That would be awlful. HH has been both so crowded and poorly operated that I have only been there twice this year and don't plan on going for a third trip either. Rather stay in my own pool or go the many better local waterparks in the area.
