Ask any adrenaline junkie and they’ll have an endless list of roller coaster rides that they’d like to try out. But have you ever heard of a water coaster? Bringing the best of both worlds, Holiday World and Splashin Safari Theme and Water Park have recently announced the construction of the world’s first water coaster called ‘Cheetah Chase’.

This new addition to the Indiana based theme park will be inaugurated in 2020. This will be their third water based ride in addition to ‘Wildebeest’ and ‘Mammoth’. With an investment of nearly $7 million, Cheetah Chase will feature two parallel tracks so that you can race your friend to reach the finish line, with the force of water pushing you at full speed. From flying saucers to steep hills to dark tunnels, visitors are truly in for a ride.

The ride is made of 1,700 ft of track and will travel at 30 ft per second. Unlike other rides, there are no tall staircases that you’ll have to climb to get to the water raft. Instead, only through the force of water, riders will be first pushed uphill and then downhill.

Canada based company Pro Slide is working on the design of the ride. The unique design allows side by side racing and lets you shoot by your rival during the course of the ride. This new water coaster will surely fulfil your need for speed and who knows, it might also give you bragging rights forever.
