Mammoth Water Coaster

Water Coaster Wild Splashin’ Safari

That’s right! This 1/3 mile water coaster is certified by the Guinness World Record folks. Mammoth also won the 2023 Water Park Ride of the Year Golden Ticket Award from Amusement Today, taking the title that Wildebeest held for a straight decade!

And your journey takes you both downhill and uphill! That’s right!

Mammoth towers seven stories from highest to lowest point and covers more than three acres. The massive Mammoth begins with a conveyor ride up the water coaster’s lift hill. Following each breath-taking drop, your boats will fly back up hill after hill.

What powers these six-passenger boats up the hills? Something called Linear Induction Motor (LIM) technology. In total, six LIMs magically propel the boats on this exciting ride.

Mammoth’s rafts are round, six-passenger boats. That means your thrilling trek may be facing forward, facing sideways, or facing backwards. Facing backwards? Yes, and in the dark. There are five enclosed slide sections. And many twists and turns.

Your whole family will be able to challenge Mammoth together – and watch each other’s delighted faces as you conquer this epic ride.
