Featuring two powered slides covering more than 1700 feet of the track, the new water coaster will see riders first experience a water-powered launch before taking on their families in a race to the finish line.

The world’s first full circuit racing water coaster, Cheetah Chase will see riders travel at an amazing 30 feet per second.

Arriving next summer, check out this amazing-looking water coaster below.

Holiday World & Splashin’ Safari’s other water coasters are also themed – Wildebeest and Mammoth – with the latter certified by Guinness World Records as the world’s longest water coaster.
