A growing line of eager children and families stretched down the road outside Edmonton’s waterslide wonderland, as thousands of people poured in. Excited young faces queued in snaking lines to the three major slides, with a mat or raft in hand, ready to test-run the ride and give their verdict.
And the biggest show-stopper on opening day proved to be the Four Lane Racer. Children, teens and adults fired down the four 75m slides in a battle to the bottom, gaining plenty of air along the way. "It’s great," Redlynch student Chelsea Haben, 15, said. "I never thought they’d ever do it."
The yellow Raft Slide was also hugely popular with one to two-seater person rafts shooting down three loop-turns, before a big-splash finale at the bottom. With no rafts required, the fast-paced red 100m Supajet Body Slide attracted plenty of thrill-seekers, who blasted down the two-looped adventure ride.
