2021 Means Three New Water Slides to Try at Water Safari

Enchanted Forest Water Safari, the #4 water park in the U.S., has three new water slides ready to go for the start of the season. They were ready to launch back for the 2020 season, but due to the pandemic, we were forced to wait to try them.

Serengeti Stampede - This ride is a new 293 ft. long four-lane mat racer. Riders go through an enclosed tunnel before blasting out on open lanes. Riders on Serengeti Stampede must be a minimum of 42 inches tall.
