Zinga is an eight-story tall family water slide that combines a popular water tunnel slide experience with the thrill of being propelled back and forth across a huge, high-banked funnel. “Zinga” is a Swahili word, meaning “to move in a circle.” We keep you “in the dark” at the beginning of this award-winning ride, then into the sunshine and the “half pipe” action of Zinga’s huge funnel you’ll slide!
Tips for your visit
Hold on tight!
Pay attention the signs showing how to ride (don’t let your backside drag).
The early part of the ride is in the dark. Be sure to scream – it echoes!
Sorry, for safety reasons we do not permit single riders.
Zinga was the world’s first giant half-pipe water slide
Not in the mood for Zinga? Grab a spot on the observation deck and watch the riders funnel on through.
