The first Aquasplash in the US is awesome enough, but I really am glad that they're going to year-round operation as well! I know once when I was looking at going, they weren't going to be open when I was in the area, and I was surprised at that time they weren't open year round. So definitely a couple of stellar 2020 additions for the OG Six Flags!

Aquaman: Power Wave is a great name for what will be the first Mack Power Splash in North America! Year-round operations was something I had been expecting since SFFT starting doing it. Bonzai Pipeline is a nice bonus! Always good to have something new and fun added to the water park!

I had the same problem when I was in the area, the weather wasn't even really cold either, certainly not like anything in great adventure for holiday in the park lol I think they will draw good crowds during these new operating days.
That water coaster looks awesome too, definitely want to make a trip out here soon. I just wish SeaWorld would get with the year round operations as well, even if it was just on the weekends.
Awesome to see one of these finally hitting the US! The name and theme seem perfect for this type of ride!
For people who have ridden these types of coasters before, how wet do they usually get you? 63 mph launch up nearly a 150 foot vertical spike sounds pretty intense to then splash face first into water.
Also glad to hear the park is running year-round! I still haven't been to any of the Texas parks, but them being open in January/February/March is an even more incentive for me to go and get out of cold a$$ Ohio during those months.

Pulsar was a huge surprise hit in Walibi Beligum, I'm glad Six Flags finally caught on three years later. Hopefully they order more because these rides can replace every Shoot The Chutes style attraction and nobody would ever complain. Well, nobody except the weirdos, but whatever.

When you're on the ride you get an appropriate amount of wetness, maybe the side seats are a bit worse. If you're in the splash zone outside the ride, though, you might as well be standing in the middle of a hurricane.
This is an awesome addition. I'm sure it will be insanely popular on those hot Texas days.
It also appears this is just a one-car version since the animation doesn't show a turntable and RCDB lists it as having one car. Capacity should still be manageable though considering the length of the ride cycle and that it holds 20 people per car.
Here's our video from 2016 of the first (I think?) installation at Walibi Belgium. Like Kyle said, it actually really surprised all of us and we all very much enjoyed it. It was about 60 degrees that day and we rode with ponchos and did just fine. It didn't waterboard or drown us like a certain water ride in Poland...
