Favorite Hurricane Harbor Slide

Recommended Posts

So, most of the slides at Hurricane Harbor are great (but are always jam packed). What's your favorite. Mines actually one of The Falls slides.

The toboggan raft slides are my favorite at HH, though I only was able to ride them once last season because of the long, slow moving lines.

I haven't went in nearly two years but I'd say the Jurahnimo Falls slide is the best because of its 80 foot drop.

Do they have a regular pool you can just lounge around and wade in the shallow end, or is it a wave pool?

Wave pool, and they kick everyone out after the wave cycles.

I never get why they kick everyone out of the pool every hour. It makes crowd problems worse.

I believe that is a safety thing.

If I remember, it is to help the lifeguards practice safety drills and to clean the water.

It is a very bizarre practice, only other waterpark I am aware of that did this was the former Wet and Wild Vegas. The vast majority of water parks normally do not kick people out of wave pools between cycles. Of course most water parks also do not have tube rentals either, even Disney disbanded it at their water parks.

I believe they do it because there have been a couple of times where kids have drowned in wave pools because the lifeguards couldn't see them in the crowds. This is like a periodic safety check to make sure everyone in the water, make sure things are clean, and then let everyone back in.

I believe every SF park does it. Six Flags America also does it too.

I guess they have to. I'm going to think it gets a little crazy in that wave pool. I try not to step in at all costs!
