Already home to four high-speed, wedgie-inducing thrill rides, the Schlitterbahn Waterpark Galveston is adding a fourth this year, set to open in June. The multi-million-dollar Infinity Racer requires riders to lie down on their stomachs head first and zoom down the 696-foot-long, 75-foot-tall enclosed spiral slide to a splash zone below.
The slides are named Orbiter and Galaxy as a tribute to the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing in July 1969 and the park’s proximity to Center Houston.
The park opens for weekends April 27 and daily starting May 17.
