MASON, Ohio – Kings Island is opening a new water slide complex Saturday when Soak City Waterpark opens for the summer.
The new “Tropical Plunge” will include six different water slide experiences, according to a news release. Three of the slides will involve guests climbing inside an “Aqua-Launch chamber” where the floor will drop from under them, sending them into a nearly vertical free fall through loops and S-curves in a translucent flume.
Another slide will send guests down an enclosed chute with four 360-degree loops, ending in a pool after 449 feet. A pair of dueling 337-foot-long tube slides will also take riders through “an enchanting series of drops and turns.”
