Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom will have a great new attraction when it opens on May 2 to kick off the water park's 30th season. The “Snake Pit” water ride, which will cover about 1.5 acres of the water park, replacing Riptide Run and the Lily Pads, will feature six body and tube slides.

The new attraction will also include:

  • Python Plummet, a roughly 65-foot-tall structure where riders can choose from one of three chambers. A trap door opens following a countdown, dropping guests in a free fall through a 450-foot slide that includes a series of flat loops and S-curves.
  • The Constrictor, a tube slide that features four 360-degree loops across 449 feet of slide.
  • Twin Boa Blasters, will take guests riding single or double tubes through a series of high-speed drops and banks.
  • Once the overhaul is complete, Wildwater Kingdom will have 26 slides, two wave pools, and two lazy rivers.
