Do you have what it takes to brave the surf of this massive waterslide? Grab a tube and climb aboard to begin the descent down this 45 foot tall experience. The slide starts by sending riders twisting through a large enclosed tube slide. Next, guests plummet down a steep, vertical drop, which plunges them onto angled wall that mimics the sensation of catching an ocean wave. This 263 foot long slide ends by gracefully sending riders through a final tunnel for a fun ‘splash landing’ into a pool at the bottom.

Surfer’s Swell is easy to find, with it’s large striped wall. This slide is also attached to its sister attraction, Dorsal Fin Drop. Both of these slides were recently added to Carolina Harbor Waterpark in 2014.

This slide complex is located between Blackbeard’s Revenge and Barracuda Blasters.

Height Requirement: 48” in bare feet minimum
