  1. I just spent two wonderful days at Cedar Point but spent all our time riding rides and eating at Melt. I didn’t get a chance to do any souvenir shopping. I’d really like to get some T-shirt’s and stuff, does anyone have a link to where I can buy Cedar Point swag? I sure would appreciate the help. #rideon
  2. Official Press Release: Cowabunga Bay Water Park Announces Surfin’ USA Turbo Blast the first ride of its kind in the world Celebrates Spectacular Slide Nights with DJ’s Fire dancers and Fireworks Las Vegas, Nev. - Cowabunga Bay water park, now opened daily, is blowing summer weekends out of the water this 2016 summer season and announces the first slide of its kind, Surfin’ USA’s Turbo Blast.

This third summer season, Cowabunga Bay is also adding evening activities to its anticipated Slide Nights, including live DJ’s, fire dancers, an illuminated park, thrilling night slides and a dazzling firework display every Friday and Saturday night, June 10 - August 20. “We are excited to offer this new ride, Surfin’ USA Turbo Blast, which is the first of its kind in the world. There’s an old saying: what goes up must come down. Cowabunga Bay is excited to introduce this thrilling slide that uses patented water jet propulsion to launches guests uphill at 30 feet per second after they first race downhill.” says Shane Huish, General Manager of Cowabunga Bay Waterpark. “Additionally, we have en-hanced our Slide Nights, where the park is illuminated and will feature a professional fireworks and entertainment show, filled with DJ’s and fire dancers each weekend.” The new TURBO BLAST ride is the latest in water slide technology and is the first ride of its kind in the world to launch riders face first up hill with its new patented water jet propulsion system. Created with industry leaders, Sky Turtle and Avalanche Water-slides, the unique element of Cowabunga Bay’s Surfin’ USA Turbo Blast, promises a one-of-a-kind water slide experience. First, guests race down the hill from a height of 55 feet and then, this new technology, defies gravity, and blasts daring riders, 30 feet per second, up and over a 30 foot hill, ending in a splashdown finale. Spectacular Slide Nights begin Friday, June 10th and will continue every weekend throughout the summer until August 20th. The park will be transformed into an electrify-ing summer paradise and will include fire dancers, DJ’s spinning the latest tunes and the night will end with an amazing display of fireworks.

  3. I’ve ridden it. The drop is insanely scary, the loop is a disorienting blur and it is surprisingly very smooth.
  4. Contrary to belief water parks use less water than most major commercial and residential developments. We use less water than an apartment complex, major retail center, housing development and here in Las Vegas, any Hotel and Casino.
  5. Here’s a look at Inatmin’s early years. For more great Amusement Park history visit Shane’s Amusement Attic here on TPR http://www.themeparkreview.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=40361
  6. Those are RTM injected fiberglass pieces which means they will be really shiny!
  7. Even though we have had chilling weather here in the desert work continues on our new slides. With the giant wave portion nearly completed, work will soon focus on the slide portion that drops into the wave and then the Beach Blanket Banzai slide. Hopefully they will be ready for testing the end of the month.
  8. Here are some progress pics of the new “Wild Surf” slide going up at Cowabunga Bay. One half of the giant wave is now completed and work on the other half continues. Once the wave portion of the slide is complete work can begin on the family raft slide “Beach Blanket Banzai” Both slides are scheduled to be completed and ready to open when Cowabunga Bay opens for its second season March 28th.
  9. Here’s the story on the re-design and delay of this ride: We purchased this slide from Polin back in 2012. In Polin’s haste they displayed a model of the ride at the IAAPA convention boasting it would open at Cowabunga Bay in 2013. When Proslide got wind of it they slapped a lawsuit against Polin due to patent infringements because it was similar to Proslide’s Tornado. When we got wind of the pending lawsuit we asked Polin to redesign the ride to differentiate it from Proslides Tornado otherwise we would have to back out of the purchase. Polin then did a major re-do on the design which now results in the more “half-pipe” design rather than the Tornado-esque look. The redesign and re-engineering took several months which caused delays in the fabrication. By the time it was all worked out there was no time to get the ride open for the 2014 season, so we held off. I am quite happy with the re-design and actually like it more than the original design. Sometimes things work out for the best.
  10. Does anyone in this area or with the park know if this is going to happen? I am hopeful this ride gets refurbed and installed soon. Update please!
  11. Cowabunga Bay Las Vegas Opening Season recap: Although the park got off to a late start, official opening day was July 4, 2014, I am thrilled to say Cowabunga Bay Las Vegas was a huge hit. From the many great reviews we got from all those who visited I feel that 2015 will be even better. The last day of operation was October 12th and we look forward to next season which begins on March 28th. We will be debuting two new 4-person family raft slides, Wild Surf & Beach Blanket Banzai, which are currently under construction, when the park opens. For all of those who did not get a chance to visit our park here are some awesome ariel views of Cowabunga Bay. Hope you get a chance to visit us soon! Shane
