About

Rare example of a Vekoma Waikiki Wave Super Flip.

Features a gondola with two rows of seats, suspended between two independently rotating arms. This allows the gondola to be swept around, twisted and flipped.

The ride has a tsunami/surfing theme.Beneath it, the ride previously featured a lagoon with water jets and a motorised shark that would circle underneath, though these elements were removed in the second half of 2007.In early 2014 the ride was closed for a major reconstruction that saw the ride given significant mechanical repairs and improvements to the ride's theme.
