Holiday World Is Getting The World’s First Racing Water Coaster

Holiday World and Splashin’ Safari is having a pretty big day. The amusement park officially broke ground on Cheetah Chase—the world’s first racing water coaster.

According to RTV6, the coaster will travel at 30 feet per second and will have the tallest rocket blast section in the world at 27 feet tall.

Holiday World president, Matt Eckert said, “Cheetah Chase is the perfect thrill ride for families. The three-person rafts allow families to race face-to-face, and the launch is the first of its kind. There’s nothing like this out there.”

Cheetah Chase is expected to open sometime in 2020. See more here.
