Wildwater Rapids Water Slide Complex at Wildwater Kingdom

Park: 11 AM - 7 PM Waterpark: Closed View Hours
Wildwater Rapids

It may seem as if you’re walking toward a dead end, but at the end of this path is a hidden treasure, Wildwater Rapids. Take your pick between four brightly colored body slides, 2 of which are enclosed and 2 are open-air. All four will take you on a twisted rip down hundreds of feet into a splash pool below. These twisty, turny, water tubes will take you on a flying adventure around its wild bends. Wildwater Rapids opened in 2003 and has been a hidden favorite ever since. Climb the 40 foot tall loading platform and choose between a yellow, blue, orange, or green body slide. The longest slide is the orange at 308 feet and the shortest is the green at 182 feet. No matter which slide you decide, you won’t be disappointed as you come crashing into the splash pool. Look for Wildwater Rapids near Aquablast and Patriot’s Plunge.
