Riptide Raceway (OOF)

Worlds of Fun supplied some new photos from the Riptide Raceway construction.  Most of the tubes are now constructed and awaiting placement.

Here are two of the "exits" from the enclosed portion of the slides.  The worlds longest mat racer ends with a fast open side-by-side racing section.

Foundations are curing for the top platform of the ride.  It won't be long before Riptide Raceway goes vertical

City Update (SDC)

A brand new Butterfield Stage has been constructed and is now located across the street from the Saloon, behind the Tin Type Photography Studio.  The Railroad Bridge is to the immediate left of this photo.

Riptide Raceway (OOF)

Work continues on the new Riptide Raceway coming to Oceans of Fun

Here you can see that slide pieces have been staged behind the wave building of Surf City.  They will construct the tubes in smaller sections before moving them to the site for installation

Speaking of the site, the entire structure of Diamond Head is now gone and the former catch pool has also been removed and filled in with dirt.  Footings are supposed to be going in soon, so vertical construction could happen before the end of April
