Schlitterbahn To Open Special Effects Filled Family Raft Ride

New Braunfels, TX -- Schlitterbahn Waterpark Resort is expanding its offerings this summer with the addition of Dragon's Revenge. This new special effects filled, family thrill ride will be one of the most detailed water park attractions in the US.

The story for Dragon's Revenge puts park guests in a setting where they're attempting to flee a potential attack of the dragon. In an attempt to find an escape route before the dragon returns, guests will weave in and around castle ruins and eventually cross a draw bridge to enter the castle's guard tower. Once inside, guests will quickly discover the only way out is through a labyrinth of ominous caverns.

Boarding an escape vehicle, riders are quickly propelled through a series of uphill blasts rocketing riders in and out, up and down around the perimeter of the castle before taking a final fog-filled freefall into the castle's mote below.

In route to the mote, guests will pass six dark creepy caverns filled with magical special effects in spinning tunnels, theatrical lighting, fiber optics, riveting original music, aromatic atmosphere, fog, faux fire and of course as to be expected, an encounter with the angry dragon.

Not only is this the debut of the first heavily themed attraction in our company's 29-year history, but we are also proud to premier many of the new state-of-the-art attraction effects in the waterpark industry."

Dragon's Revenge will have a height requirement of 42 inches.
