Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Invites Guests to "Drop In" in 2013 with Bonzai Pipelines

Agwam, MA, USA (Aug. 30, 2012) /PRNewswire/ — Six Flags New England and Hurricane Harbor today announced plans to add Bonzai Pipelines, a 65-foot tall waterslide complex featuring six drop hatch slides. Bonzai Pipelines joins New England’s largest water park’s existing line-up of 27 slides, pools and attractions. Six Flags New England is home to one of the top-ranked steel coaster on the planet, Bizarro, and boasts more coasters than all other theme parks in New England, combined.

Bonzai Pipelines features six looping slides set atop a 65-foot tower. After reaching the top of the 6-story structure, guests will step into the state-of-the-art ‘DrenalineDrop’ launching capsule where the floor drops out beneath them, sending them free-falling down the slide, twisting and turning before landing in a refreshing splash runout. Riders will surf the 257-foot slide at up to 40 miles per hour. Bonzai Pipeline’s unique clear launching tubes allow spectators to be a part of the adrenaline-pumping action.

“Hurricane Harbor is the premier water park in New England and is a favorite among our guests,” saidJohn Winkler, Six Flags New England park president. “The addition of Bonzai Pipelines to our incredible portfolio of water attractions solidifies our commitment to delivering world-class thrills in our water park as well as our theme park.”

Bonzai Pipelines is scheduled to open spring 2013 and the new tower complex will be a “must ride” for thrill seekers of all ages. Six Flags Hurricane Harbor is free with theme park admission.
