It is indeed at Wet n Wild in the Extreme H2O zone. In actuality, the park markets the attraction as "Mach 5" (The attraction being the whole structure with the 3 person raft slides, and the freefall slides) However, when you are at the actual park the rides are signed as being the "Sidewinders" (The 3 person raft slides) and "The Jetstreams" (Freefall Slides) which is how they are entered in the database. See http://wetnwild.myfun.com.au/Attractions/E...Zone/Mach-5.htm While we are here, I have a question of my own...Has the sidewinder on the AOS side ever operated? What is the story? Edit: Fixed silly mistake.

^Short answer is yes I have been on the side closer to Australian Outback Spectacular, but I don't know if/why it hasn't been in full operation for a while haha.

Pretty sure thats the wrong way around ;) The left side doesnt get used because it just isnt busy, so they cut down on staff therefore opening only oe side and thats the most accesible side to exit from. Mammoth Falls has only one side open at the moment, the AOS one and thats because its not busy and only the camera on the AOS side is working for ride photography.

If I may whine a bit, it really annoys me trying to get up the stairs when they're clogged full of tubes. (Trying to access Jetstreams). At least on Mammoth Falls they used to have signs saying which side to stay on for the corresponding ride. People treat you as if you're line jumping.

I asked them once and I was told it was the pump, but who knows... It was running when we stayed for the movie, but roped off as only one lifeguard was on duty. Edited by WnW_Rocks
