Tallest Slide at the Park Featuring Nearly 90 Degree Drop

MARIETTA, Ga., Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Six Flags White Water will make an enormous splash in 2015 with the addition of Dive Bomber, an electrifying capsule water slide towering 10 stories tall. Dive Bomber will take the existing Cliffhanger attraction to new heights and become the tallest water slide ever built at the South's Most Thrilling Water Park.

"We are excited to introduce Dive Bomber at White Water as one of the most intense water slides in the south," said Six Flags Atlanta Properties park president Dale Kaetzel. "It will test the courage of all thrill-seekers and our guests with an adrenaline rush never experienced before at the park, when it is least expected."

The daringly tall water slide, Dive Bomber, will feature:

  • An enclosed, clear capsule with a trap door that releases riders for a zero-gravity experience
  • A tower more than 100 feet above the lush tree line of the park
  • A nearly 90 degree drop
  • Speeds of more than 40 miles per hour
