Adventure Island, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay’s water park, is getting a new intense drop slide in 2018 called “Vanish Point.”
This slide is inspired by the point on a wave where gravity and water combine perfectly. The crest of this 70-foot tower houses two 425-foot wave paths. Guests can step into one of two skyboxes as they face their fears and the floor is dropped from beneath them. Guests also have the option of getting horizontal on a 455-foot-long slide that ends with a high-speed finish.
“These unique ride paths give guests options on how they want their thrills delivered,” said Stewart Clark, President of Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and Adventure Island. “Whether you choose to have the floor drop from beneath your feet, or race to the bottom on a looped slide, the only way down once you get to the top is a wild ride that gets your heart pumping.”
Vanish Point will be located in the center of Adventure Island, next to the family-favorite thrill slide, Colossal Curl. Construction will begin in the coming weeks, with the ride expected to open during the kick-off of the 2018 season for the park.
