Adventure Island has announced that a new drop slide, Vanish Point, will open March 2018.

Inspired by the point on a wave where water and gravity form a perfect partnership, the “crest of this 70-foot tower challenges you with two 425 ft. wave paths”. The slide will feature two skyboxes with drop floors, and a non-drop floor, horizontal 455-foot long slide.

“These unique ride paths give guests options on how they want their thrills delivered,” said Stewart Clark, president of Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and Adventure Island.  “Whether you choose to have the floor drop from beneath your feet, or race to the bottom on a looped slide, the only way down once you get to the top is a wild ride that gets your heart pumping.”

Vanish Point will be located at the center of the park next to Colossal Curl.

Construction on Vanish Point will begin in the coming weeks, and the ride is expected to be completed to kick off the 2018 season for Adventure Island.
