Taumata Racer

All-New Taumata Racer

Taumata Racer, named for a famous hill in New Zealand, is All-New at Aquatica San Antonio.

It’s a high-speed waterslide where riders zoom downhill head first on foam bodysurfing mats. It’s also a competitive ride with six side-by-side lanes. Taumata Racer launches riders in an entry tunnel that makes a swooping, 180-degree turn, then straightens out to make two additional descents over the 375-foot slide length and 55-foot drop in under 10 seconds.
