AGAWAM, Mass., 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 the top-ranked steel coaster on the planet, Bizarro, and boasts more coasters than all other theme parks in New England, combined.
Bonzai Pipelines is the ultimate in water park thrills featuring 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. Three-Two-One DROP!
"Hurricane Harbor is the premier water park in New England and is a favorite among our guests," said John 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.
