ProSlide recently opened two slide complexes at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois. The slides are part of the park’s Hurricane Harbor Riptide Bay expansion. Plunge from either one of the six-story FreeFALLs™ with 80 degree angle drops, or the unmatched G-forces of the incredible looping SuperLOOPs™. The ProSlide SkyBox™ Launch Systems are designed and refined to produce a high speed drop-launch experience.

The launch angle of the SkyBox™ has been carefully calculated in conjunction with the speed with which the floor drops out to provide the greatest sensation of weightlessness, while providing a very safe and consistent anticipatory launch.

The fun doesn’t stop there at Riptide Bay! The installation of North America’s First Outdoor TantrumALLEY™ spices up Water Ride entertainment for the whole family. “Wipeout” winds your 4-Person CLOVERleaf™ raft through the tunnel onto two separate funnels, both promising several oscillations before feeding your raft on through the ride.

ProSlide’s continued partnership and friendship with the Six Flags Corporation has taken the water ride standard and industry to a whole new level, as they now have 14 TORNADO™ Installations accompanied by the largest number of iconic ProSlide attractions in the World.
