New six-lane racing water slide coming to Raging Waves in Summer 2020

Yes, fall is here, but we can’t deny that next summer is already on our mind. Get excited to splash into Summer 2020 with this new attraction!

Raging Waves plans to open Aussie Mat Dash, a six-lane mat racing water slide, sometime next summer. The water attraction is a Proslide RallyRACER that allows riders to race others and track their progress along the way. Great for competitive kids (and parents), right?

“We are thrilled to add an exciting new waterslide to our waterpark,” said Randy Witt, Raging Waves co-owner, in a press release. “Bringing our total waterslide count to 32, the Aussie Mat Dash is the perfect ride for guests to embrace their competitive side and race together all summer long.”

Riders must be at least 42 inches tall to ride the Aussie Mat Dash and it will be installed on the south end of the Yorkville waterpark. Looking for water fun to enjoy now? Check out our favorite indoor water parks near Chicago!
