Next May, Indiana will get the world’s longest water coaster. Again.
For 2012, Holiday World/Splashin’ Safari in Santa Claus, Indiana will unveil the Mammoth, the world’s longest water coaster. Splashin’ Safari already has the world’s longest water coaster, the Wildebeest, so this will put the 2 longest coasters in the world in the same park.
Located east of Wildebeest, Mammoth will begin with a conveyor ride up the water coaster’s lifthill. Following the five-story drop at a 45-degree angle, linear induction motors (LIMs) will propel the six-person round boats up additional hills, into dark enclosed sections and through twists and turns. Mammoth will cover three acres, increasing the water park’s size to 30 acres.
