Slippery When Wet at Hard Rock Park | Coaster ReviewsIn the heart of Hard Rock Park lies one the park’s few attractions that incorporate water. Slippery When Wet (likely named after the Bon Jovi album) is a suspended coaster designed by Premier Rides. It is similar to Carowinds Flying Super Saturator and Hersheypark’s Roller Soaker. Each car holds four riders, two facing frontward and two facing backward. Unique to Slippery, the ride begins with a hydraulic elevator lift. After the four or five story climb, the car begins its winding path. Meanwhile, onlookers can man large water canons and take aim at the riders flying overhead. It’s almost certain that you will get wet. Aside from the canons, the train passes through a wall of sprinkling water towards the end. As with most attractions, Hard Rock Park, adds an innovative spin to this concept. While riders are in danger of getting sprayed, they do have a way to retaliate. Every car features a green button that sends a radio signal to shower heads above the people that are using the canons. The buttons weren’t operational when I was there, but it sounds like revenge will be sweet. Located in the Born in the USA section, Slippery When Wet is a great attraction for kids and even adults that want to cool off. Adjacent to the coaster is Kids Rock! State Park. It’s a camp-themed area that includes rock climbing, rope bridges, forts and water play areas. Obviously, Slippery can’t compare to some of the other more thrilling rides, but it does play a nice support role and helps to round out the park’s lineup.

The safety bar holding you in the seat is unpadded metal, and there are several sudden stops which jam your gut right into it. The ride itself is very short, and worse, very slow. There is no excitement or thrill to it whatsoever. Reply Matthew June 29, 2009 this must have been the hardest "roller coaster" youve ever reviewed. But when i look at a water ride i look for 2 things: getting wet and the drop. This ride doesnt have a drop which disapoints me, but you do get wet. And you are going to get wet cause theres a waterfall that gets you wet/soaked everytime. And this ride breaks down alot but when the ride isnt broken, there usually is no one there Reply Leave a Reply Cancel ReplyYour email address will not be published.CommentName* Email* Website This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
