Two New Breathtaking Water Slides Are Now Open In Boomerang Bay


Carowinds, Thrill Capital of the Southeast, is excited to bring two new breathtaking water slides to Boomerang Bay. The mega-slides are the first phase of a multi-year, multi-million dollar capital investment plan at Carowinds. The new slides stand over 4 stories high and add 600+ feet of sliding fun, bringing new thrills and splashes to the popular water park. The slides offer two distinctively different rides unique to Boomerang Bay.


Surfer’s Swell travels a total of 263 feet as riders will plunge onto an angled wall that mimics the sensation of catching an ocean wave. Guests then gracefully enter a final tunnel for a fun ‘splash landing’ into a pool at the bottom of this 45 foot tall experience.

Dorsal Fin Drop offers 351 feet of slide and takes riders on the spin of a lifetime as they gain speed in a curved-tunnel that blasts them into a bowl. Like a shark circling its prey, guests spin and swirl before sliding into the corkscrew exit.

The slides are primed to make Boomerang Bay better than ever as they add to its popular attractions, including two wave pools, 11 slides, and 2 kiddie splash pools with over 2 million gallons of water in total. “Cedar Fair is committed to building more excitement and value for our Carowinds guests” says Bart Kinzel, Carowinds Vice-President and General Manager, “The slides are just the first phase of a multi year park investment plan that will continue to deliver the best-day-of-summer that guests have come to expect.”

Construction is complete and is NOW OPEN.  Follow along by liking us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.
