Raging Waters’ delayed Bombs Away dual-drop water slide to open in 2022

Raging Waters Los Angeles reopens for the 2022 season on May 21, one of the earliest opening days in park history. In addition to extra days, guests will be able to step up to the park’s new dual-drop thriller, Bombs Away. Sliders will step into enclosed capsules when, without notice, the floor beneath their feet abruptly vanishes and drops them down into two unique experiences – a straight-speed six-story, 70-degree AquaDrop where sliders will reach speeds of up to 30 feet per second, or a twisting, turning loop through a closed-tube 325-foot-long fly-by at similar speeds. 

“We know our guests have been waiting to blast off in Bombs Away since it was first announced in 2019,” says General Manager Roland Reyes. The slides’ debut was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic. “These drops are over the top, and we are so excited for sliders to step in and see the Bombs Away experience was worth the wait.”

Raging Waters Los Angeles will add a new open-air retail location at the park’s main gate so guests can stock up on sunscreen, swim trunks and other essentials. The Raging Waters team is also developing new food items.
