Aquatica San Antonio will open its newest water ride, Riptide Race on Saturday, March 5, 2022. This pipeline ride offers good-natured competition by featuring dueling side-by-side flumes and low walls to give racers full view of their competitors. Set atop of a 51-foot tower, guests will board a two-person raft and race through 565 feet of slides.
“We are excited to open Riptide Race at Aquatica in San Antonio,” said Lise Collins, Vice President of Aquatica. “We know our guests are constantly seeking new adventures at our parks and we are always on the hunt to provide them with something unique and exciting to enhance their experience. We think Riptide Race will give park-goers even more reason to love Aquatica and keep coming back for more.”
Aquatica continues its stream of new attractions with Riptide Race as the third new high-speed water ride in as many years. With a height requirement of 42 inches, this fast-paced, high-speed adventure can be enjoyed by families.
In addition to the Riptide Race, Aquatica will premiere a new bar, Turi’s Beach Bar, adjacent to Big Surf Shores wave pool. This full-service bar will feature a variety of beers, mixed drinks, cocktails and frozen drinks for beachgoers to enjoy at the bar, poolside or in one of the many private cabanas available to rent.
Aquatica San Antonio opens for the 2022 season on March 5 and will be open daily until March 20 for Spring Break. After Spring Break, Aquatica will be open Fridays through Sundays until summer when daily operation resumes.
