WhiteWater West has launched the new Megatube raft series.

The core feature of the patent-pending Megatube series is a massive 6m diameter fully enclosed flume set at a transverse angle to the slide path. Rafts drop down a steep ramp into the Megatube, gaining speed and climbing up to 3m as riders oscillate up and down the inner walls, splashing and screaming their way down the waterslide.

You can add multiple Megatubes of varying length and shape, and combine with other WhiteWater waterslides like the Abyss or the Family Boomerango to create a Super Raft Ride.

In fact, the Megatube is large enough that another flume can actually pass through it, creating a truly sensational attraction for riders and spectators alike. There is the possibility an AquaLoop rider could hurtle down a translucent SilkTek flume, passing through the Megatube just as a group of surprised raft riders goes by below.

The first two MEGAtube rides are the Viper, a three-person raft ride, and the Python, a six-person raft ride. Additional rides are in the works.
