Hurricane Falls

Hurricane Falls is a Carolina Harbor family favorite! Families or groups prepare to begin this sliding adventure by boarding spacious four-person rafts. Riders then begin their descent down four stories of this large, open-air slide. Their raft swirls through a 564-foot long route. This experience features high-banked turns and some unexpected thrills. The journey through Hurricane Falls ends with a splash in a landing pool.

Hurricane Falls is one of Carolina Harbor’s most popular attractions. The entrance to this slide is located between Coastal Currents and Storm Surge, across from Beach Bites. A large umbrella and lounge chairs are located at the bottom of the slide so non-riders can watch all the fun!

Height Requirement: 42” in bare feet minimum. Guests between 42” and 48” tall in bare feet must wear a life jacket and be accompanied by a supervising companion
