GREENSBORO, NC. – (Aug. 12, 2019) – Wet’n Wild Emerald Pointe, the Carolinas’ favorite waterpark, announces the newest addition to its world-class attraction lineup that’s guaranteed to provide heart pounding thrills for the upcoming 2020 season – Bombs Away, a pair of high altitude, free-fall body slides, each with a different ride experience!
Opening Memorial Day Weekend 2020, Bombs Away will take brave riders to a towering height of nearly six-stories. Once they reach the top, riders can choose one of two ride experiences, either an enclosed, looping slide or an open vertical drop slide. From there, they enjoy a breathtaking view of the Park before stepping into an enclosed, launch capsule where the countdown begins for what will happen next. Within seconds, the floor below drops out, sending riders free falling at 26 feet per second through a heart-pounding adventure before reaching the runout below! Bombs Away also promises to be as thrilling to watch as it is to experience, allowing spectators to view riders taking the plunge through its vibrant, translucent red, white and blue layout.
“We’re excited to introduce a new, high thrill attraction to the Park next season,” said Adam Good, General Manager for Wet’n Wild Emerald Pointe. “Offering a unique and thrilling ride experience, Bombs Away is sure to become an instant favorite with our guests!”
Bombs Away will be located on the right side of Thunder Bay Wave Pool near the Main Stage area and Dragon’s Den. Those who can’t wait to experience Bombs Away next summer can follow the progress of the ride with exclusive updates, statistics and renderings on the Park’s Instagram @WetnWildEP or at EmeraldPointe.com.
