The Bonzai Pipelines consist dueling body speed water slides with crazy twists and turns. Starting from 30 feet high, patrons will be able to slide down 300 feet of brightly colored slides.

“This multi-slide attraction will be a great enhancement to the water park and provide another awesome way to cool off on hot summer days,” Eric Gilbert, Six Flags Great Escape Resort President, said in a statement. “From our iconic thrill rides to our two children’s areas and free water park, no other theme park in the area offers this level of entertainment for the entire family and we are excited to continue enhancing our resort in 2017.”

More information about the Bonzai Pipelines will be revealed in the spring of 2017.

In the meantime, although the summer activities are coming to a close, plenty is still happening at Great Escape in the fall! Check out Oktoberfest, happening this weekend and next weekend. Then, get ready for Fright Fest on weekends from October 1st through the 30th.
