Howler

The Howler is an advanced water slide at the World Waterpark.

Consisting of both exposed and enclosed portions, the slide offers an exhilarating ride consisting of sharp drops and sudden turns, and ends with a steep drop into a splashdown pool.

The Howler originally opened as a pair of slides, similar to many other slides in the park. However, its left chute was closed after decades of operation. This left chute contained a turn which was too extreme, and occasionally resulted in sliders being flipped from their backs onto their stomachs, which had the potential for injury. This left chute was eventually transformed into Slideboarding.

As with some other slides, parents are allowed to catch children at the bottom of the slide.
