ProSlide Introduces World Premiere of New Hybrid Raft Ride at Six Flags Over Georgia

Ottawa, ON, Canada — ProSlide’s  new product for the fall is yet another Hybrid ride, a BehemothBOWL 40 + TornadoWAVE that opened at Six Flags Over Georgia in June. It’s a world’s first.

BehemothBOWL 40 + TornadoWAVE
Ride experience. Thrill-seekers on 4-person rafts barrel through twisting tunnels before shooting out into the huge bowl, high on the wall for maximum thrills. As they slow slightly through the revolution, riders gather their courage. Something’s coming and it’s going to be wild! Suddenly, the raft is sucked through the vortex of the bowl at triple speed and through a stomach-dropping chute, driving back and forth inside the flume, then into the slot for maximum thrills! Rafts plunge at a 45º angle onto the TornadoWAVE wall. A nail-biting zero-gravity moment as they make a wide, sweep across the wall. Then slide through the narrow exit, another curve and into the pool.

TORNADO’s patented funnel shape is engineered to drive rafts further up the walls, delivering unparalleled excitement in maximum safety.
