Riptide Raceway - NOW OPEN (OOF)


Riptide Raceway is finally open at Oceans of Fun.  While the slide complex has been open for a few weeks now, we finally were able to get a reservation to the park to check it out.

The complex is located where the former Diamond Head slides were located

Four riders can experience the attraction at the same time racing down one of the four different slides.

We found that purple gives an almost "in the dark" ride whereas yellow gives a "lighted" ride.  Red and Orange are kind of in between with the amount of light let in.

While a fun ride, there's really not much "racing" to it except at the start and at the very end.  It would have been nice to have a section where you can see where you are versus everyone else before the final run out.  With that being said, it is a great addition to the park and a much needed people eater.
