Lake Compounce guests risk getting eaten in the Venus Vortex, new for 2020

Something new is taking root at Lake Compounce’s Crocodile Cove, a Palace Entertainment water park. New England’s family theme and water park announces the newest addition to its water slide lineup, Venus Vortex – opening summer 2020.

Standing six-stories above the lake and decked in bright green and yellow, Venus Vortex features a unique ride experience never before seen in New England. Resembling the carnivorous mouth of a hungry venus flytrap ready for its next meal, this slide tempts brave prey to navigate twists, turns and sudden drops. After journeying through a dark tunnel, riders will experience weightlessness as they suddenly plummet down the near vertical drop into the jaws of the hungry creature. As their three-person raft slides back and forth in between rows of teeth, riders must escape before it traps you inside.

“Venus Vortex will be Lake Compounce’s largest and most thrilling slide to date,” said Jerry Brick, Lake Compounce General Manager. “This addition will further solidify our park as the go-to water park in Southern New England.”

Venus Vortex will be located right alongside the lake, next to Bayou Bay Wave Pool and across from Johnny Rockets, and is scheduled to open to guests Memorial Day Weekend 2020.
