Introducing Riptide Raceway - New World’s Longest Mat Racing Water Slide Coming in Summer 2021
Competition and thrills combine at Worlds of Fun when the record-breaking Riptide Raceway debuts at Oceans of Fun water park. Riptide Raceway will take guests five stories high before they speed down four side-by-side tunnels atop a soft foam mat. Riders in each lane will race more than 486 feet to be the first to reach the finish line as they make an exhilarating journey down a winding hillside, around a tight 360-degree loop and through a rapid final descent before splashdown.
This family-friendly ride has been designed to follow the natural terrain of the park's landscape and is the first thrill attraction added to the water park since 2013 when Oceans of Fun and Worlds of Fun were conjoined. As the world's longest mat racing waterslide, Riptide Raceway is "shore" to deliver an AMAZING thrill experience!
