Day 21- 2018: Install Major Additions for Hurricane Harbor's 20th Anniversary

Recommended Posts

DAY21.jpg

 

The year 2019 marks Hurricane Harbor's 20th season.  How about we show the park some love and add a signature complex of slides that puts the water park back on the map especially given all the new competition which will soon be knocking at HH's door.

Honestly, they just need SOMETHING- I never visit Hurricane Harbor because of how long the lines are- the only days the lines aren't terrible are cold days when I don't want to be there either. Like others have said, a water coaster would be great, fantastic ride and has great throughput compared to other slides- Besides the water coaster, there are two other types of water attractions that I love. The first one is something like Water Country USA in Virginia has with Hubba Hubba Highway- for those unfamiliar, it is like a lazy river but instead of tubes, you wear life vests that keep you floating and the water current goes CRAZY FAST- it is probably my favorite water park attraction out there. The other type of water attraction is something that I don't even know how to compare it to. Dorney park used to have a similar one but it is gone and I do not know the name- it is, again, like a lazy river- this time actually on tubes. The difference with this one is its little pools and then there is a water slide when you get to the end of the pool- after that slide you go into another pool that is like a lazy river and then another slide- it is so much fun having slide after slide after slide- Whether these come true or something else, HH NEEDS another attraction.

Especially if the rumors are true about King Cobra going to Mexico. Hope A Behemoth Bowl replaces it.

 

Also if  were to guess, You guys could use a 2nd Wave Pool and maybe a Flow Rider

It’s not a rumor, the ride was already removed. Here are pictures of the ride being installed in Mexico from the Hurricane Harbor Oaxtepec facebook page.

That removed slide at Dorney was called Riptide, basically it was a inground version of Morey's Skypond slide. The bad thing about that type of slide is that they require lifeguards in every pool, which is bad for a waterpark like HH which claims it has a constant lifeguard shortage. Still I really miss Riptide.

 

Sadly any new attraction at HH will likely increase crowds at the park. What the park really needs are improved operations, more lifeguards, signal lights installed on the slides, and eliminating Flashpass there.
