Blue Tubaluba

Tube Slide

Riders must be 48" and a capable swimmer to slide.

Boardwalk Blasters

Body Slide

Strong swimmers only for this extreme action slide. Race down two 25-foot long slides to a soaking surprise ending – a 7-foot free fall into a 12-foot deep landing pool!

Riders must be 48" and a capable swimmer to slide.


Tube Slide

What if you could take a break while sliding? That's exactly what happens each time you land in a "sky pond" along our Cliffhanger Slides! Riders hike up 45 steps to the start of Cliffhangers then riders glide down parallel slides and enjoy three sky ponds along the way, until the final slide into the last landing pool.

Riders must be 48" and a capable swimmer to slide.

Dragon's Den

Tube Slide

Sandcastle's newest, breathtaking answer to those on a quest for maximum thrills. You'll catapult through mysterious darkness and then plummet into the mist-shrouded abyss of the dragon…only to vanish from sight! You won't believe it until you encounter it face to face.

Brave thrill seekers will enjoy THE MONSTER, a free-fall slide, starting 85-feet above the finish, with a gradual slope glide of 25-feet, that drops to a steep 60-feet, hitting speeds up to 25 miles per hour! Each slide finishes in a 4-inch deep braking lane of water.
