Colossal Curl soon to open
The tallest ride at Adventure Island waterpark in Tampa, Florida, is set to open early next year.
The four-passenger Colossal Curl slide, the first new attraction at the park since 2006, will rise 70ft and span 560ft.
The slide will combine funnel and wave elements and give riders a feeling of weightlessness.
It will be located at the centre of the park, replacing Gulf Scream.
Construction will begin in the coming weeks.
