Welcome to Hurricane Harbor Chicago.

The newest area to the park is Riptide Bay

This area feature 4 drop capsule slides.  Dive Bomber is the two twisty tube slides and Mega Wedgie are the two straight down slides in the middle

Along the route you will encounter different water obstacles including waterfalls, leaky buckets and even a wave machine that powers riders around the course.

Tornado is a slide that takes up to 4 passengers on a clover leaf raft high up on the walls of the funnel before coming up the bottom of the funnel into a catch pool

This tower of slides has combination of of tube and body slides.  The two bowl slides on the right are Typhoon and Vortex.  In the middle the light blue and yellow slides are Hammerhead and Barracuda.

The two body slides seen closest to the camera are Paradise Plunge and Riptide.

Hurricane Bay is the park's wave pool.

While not very deep it does make up for it by being extremely wide which helps accommodate larger crowds

Bahama Mama and Bubba Tubba are both located on the same tower.

These are both family raft slides that can accommodate up to 4 riders at a time.

Wahoo Racer is a down hill head first raft racer slide.

In the far back part of the park is Hurricane Mountain, a collection of 4 rafts slides.

Skull Island is the mega water fortress in the middle of the park.

This water fortress is easily one of the largest out there.

Always have a good time at this water park.
