Scorpion’s Tail, Noah’s Ark Waterpark

A near vertical drop that's ten stories high, and 400 feet long ... thank goodness you'll be in an enclosed tube for most of the ride. This slide is for the thrill seekers who are okay with having no control over their ride. Fall through a trap door and watch the water park around you.
