White Water adds 7-story, 6-slide thrill ride

New in 2007, White Water presents its biggest ride ever – a 7-story, 6-slide, multi-experience thrill ride. Higher than White Water’s previous largest slide by over two stories, the new ride will be 75 feet high, with two 300-foot drop slides for top-speed body sliding and four additional 312-foot lane slides for four-lane speed racing.

The new $1.5 million ride adds more ways to glide and slide at Branson’s Beach Within Reach — with nearly 7,000 feet of slides and 12 rides and attractions for the ultimate summer splashdown experience.

With two million gallons of cool, water-drenched indulgence, White Water is an aquatic oasis where guests can swim, surf, splash and slide in water-cooled comfort. Ride lovers will find plenty of fast-paced rides from the new slides to the white-water rapids of the Caribbean Plunge and Tropical Twister. Surf enthusiasts can ride on tubes or bodysurf the breaking waves of the 500,000-gallon wave pool, and leisure floaters can drift with the current of the Lazy River. Families play together in the super-soaked RainTree Island, while kids rule at Splash Island and Little Squirts’ Waterworks.

Branson’s “beach within reach” White Water opens May 21

Along Branson’s 76 Country Boulevard, one of the hottest entertainment strips in the country, there is an oasis of waterfront recreation, White Water. Called Branson’s Beach Within Reach, White Water opens for the 2005 season May 21, with rides ranging from fast-paced to truly relaxing, and Cool Cabanas for poolside comfort.

Rides include speed slides, a 500,000-gallon wave pool and a gently moving “river” for floating or swimming. Adventure areas within the park offer play for families, with separate areas designed for kids and toddlers.

Cool Cabanas are available for semi-private gatherings for up to 8 people. The rental Cabanas have a covered area with a television, ceiling fan and locker; and an open area with a table, chairs and an umbrella.

Safety is of paramount importance at White Water. The lifeguard staff has been recognized with numerous national awards, including Platinum and Silver National Aquatic Safety Awards for consistently exceeding aquatic safety standards. Free life jackets, free tubes and a full staff of certified lifeguards are on hand.
