Summit Plummet, a 165 foot 80 degree body drop slide. It is amaze balls.

Nahhhh, bomb bay does it for me. I was literatelly sobbing with fear when i got into the tube, but it was A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!! But could they fit that type of waterslide in an indoor water park???
The only thing I like better than roller coasters,Alton Towers, Towers times and Theme Parks is HARRY POTTER, yes, I am a Potterhead and proud of it! :)

Not like there going to make a huge slide, a nice idea is a bowl slide or a cool idea a duelling bowl slide:

You'd be surprised what has already been planned:

More images:
Side Elevation
More Detailed Overhead View

But don't get your hopes up. This plan never actually got past the development stage. More recently there was a plan for a 4 sided tower but the last anyone heard of it was that it was awaiting approval from Merlin, that was quite a long time ago...

Posted by another member a while ago, resurfaced again recently, I just happened to remember them. The date is given as April 2007 so this would have been one of the last plans drawn-up before Merlin took over. They could have been the reason it was scrapped; they did cancel a lot of projects that were in the works around then.

Anyway, no, Summit Plummet would never be built. I just like it.

It would have to be a space bowl.toilet bowl slide! They are great fun, and look great! Plus you could always twin it with the flume or something like that! :)

Personally I think a vertical drop slide (Bomb Bay - Wet 'n' Wild Orlando as an example) would be ideal. They have a very small footprint and will help to spread out thrill-seekers within the waterpark, considering that the only thrill slide at present is Master Blaster, which consequently has consistently long wait times. On top of this, expansions including the plans posted by Nightfall would be very much welcomed, along with a higher level of theming and attention given to the outdoor segments of the 'park'.

i dont think a tube ride would be a good idea because have you seen the queues to get the tubes during peak season.

More like a slide from the top of the adventure climbing thing. Like a speed slide.

The above plan was one of a few submitted in 2007 (including for an extension to ATH with about 20 extra 'mini-suite' rooms) but never saw the light of day.

I think people said at the time that it was a way of Tussauds showing off the potential for expansion at the resort to get the best price for their sale to Merlin and such they were never really intended to be built anyway...

I'm not sure about slide concepts, I think the park would need to take a serious look at what Aquatica has done. They really took waterparks to a whole new level.

The lazy rivers are an experience in themselves, along with the slides!

http://www.aquaticabyseaworld.com/RideList.aspx

Omaka Rocka, Tassie's Twisters and Walhalla Wave stood out as my favorites.

A multi person ride would be great for familys. Think Teamboat Springs at Blizzard Beach (on a much smaller scale!!)
Now's not the time for fear. That comes later.
