America's First Dual Tailspin Water Slide Opens on March 14 at Adventure Island

Adventure Island, Tampa’s premier waterpark located across the street from Busch Gardens, kicks off its 2020 season with the opening of a record-breaking, new water slide, Solar Vortex - America’s first dual tailspin water slide. In preparation for the park’s opening, Brandon Thom, Adventure Island’s new Vice President, is sliding into his role with a “ride of passage” on the newest attraction.

“Adventure Island is heading into its 40th splash-filled season and we couldn’t be more excited to kick-off 2020 by adding America’s first dual tailspin water slide to our portfolio of slides,” said Thom. “As a family raft slide, Solar Vortex packs a bigger thrill than I was expecting – the high speed generated by the tailspin feature really amps up the ride journey. Along with Adventure Island’s many slides, pools, and splash zones, Solar Vortex is sure to make 2020 our best season yet.”

Solar Vortex debuts new water slide elements unlike any other attraction at Adventure Island. The high-thrill family raft slide combines high-banking rotations and rapid descents, sending sliders on a swirling journey through two open tailspin features. Solar Vortex will also include three dynamic AquaLucent™ elements – harnessing the power of the Florida sun into colorful patterns that shine through the slide as riders reach speeds of up to 20 miles per hour.
