Solar Vortex

America’s first dual tailspin waterslide

Spin and splash on Solar Vortex, America’s first dual tailspin waterslide

Spin and splash at Adventure Island on Solar Vortex – America’s first dual-tailspin water slide. This high-thrill family raft slide combines high-banking rotations and rapid descents, sending sliders on a swirling journey through two open tailspin features. Manufactured by Whitewater, Solar Vortex will also include three dynamic AquaLucent™ elements – harnessing the power of the Florida sun into colorful patterns that shine through the slide as riders reach speeds of up to 20 miles per hour.
