The Little Rippers
Riders with the need for some slippery speed will not be disappointed with the ultimate rush into the bowl component of the ‘The Little Rippers’. Unlike ‘The Rip’, WhiteWater World’s current behemoth bowl, The Little Rippers utilises singular and two man tubes, rather than the four man cloverleaf tubes. This allows for the creation of smaller tunnels, delivering larger levels of speed into the barreling bowls. The Little Rippers is the first duelling cannon bowl water ride in the world to turn in opposite directions, one clockwise and the other anti-clockwise to create the "duelling" effect.
Most significant is the "centre-core corkscrew exit" - this ground breaking technology and design creates a safe, smooth and consistent rider motion through the centre of the bowl and into the plunge pool. Go head-to-head with your mates on the Little Rippers and see who is flushed out first!

The WedgieGut wrenching, heart pounding, teeth chattering. That’s the feeling you get when you step inside the launch chamber of WhiteWater World’s newest power slide, The Wedgie, cross your arms behind your head and peer face first over the sissies five-storeys below. The wildest doom drop of them all, The Wedgie has no nanny mats and no support tubes. As the trap door triggers, it’s simply fast flesh on fibreglass as you plummet feet first down a near vertical descent, barrelling through a human sized helix before smashing into the splash pool down below.Here the classic Aussie Cossie braking system kicks in and you feel the fast tug on cheeks as your bathing suit once again assumes control, giving “rise” to the slide’s bold name.
Super Tubes Hydro Coaster
When a river-mouth dredging project connected Snapper Rocks, Greenmount and Kirra into one flawless right-hander, it was the happiest accident in the history of the Gold Coast – a new super ride was born! But now the Gold Coast has a brand new Superbank and the ride is like nothing you’ve experienced before. Super Tubes HydroCoaster is a water-based rocket and the world’s very latest innovation in waterslide thrills and technology. This intense roller coaster on water comes complete with exhilarating drops and terrifying turns propelling riders up the steepest of inclines at the highest of speeds. One of only two of it’s kind in the whole world; it’s a 28 second, ‘magic carpet’ ride that would leave Aladdin begging for mercy. Riders sit one behind the other in a special Rocket Raft built for three before being blasted from the 18 metre tower down the 236 metre track of terror. Filled with open tubes and enclosed flumes, Super Tubes Hydrocoaster is packed with back to back turns and loops and is manufacturer ProSlide’s pride and joy …
