TORNADO 45 water ride

Ride experience

The impressive five-storey TORNADO 45 excited guests long before they get in the raft. The huge funnel lets guests enjoy the ride—and your entire park—from a towering viewing platform, whether they try the ride or not.

A consistent guest favourite, the TORNADO 45 is built from award-winning technology. The 45-foot (14 m) funnel offers all the benefits of the TORNADO 60, but is scaled for tighter spaces and more modest budgets.

Riders enter the TORNADO at the steepest angles and the fastest speeds. As they sweep high up the opposite wall—and across the equator line—they experience an unparalleled feeling of weightlessness. With their vehicle almost perpendicular to the ground, riders feel like they are about to tip over; but the curved funnel wall keeps them perfectly safe. After a series of these exciting oscillations, riders descend through the outrun and exit the ride.

Exclusive technology

Only ProSlide creates a true funnel-shaped water ride with a perfectly round opening and curved walls that taper to the center. This patented shape creates the thrills that just can’t be duplicated.

Anchor ride

For riders, the funnel’s huge size maximizes both the thrills and the time to anticipate and savor them. Guests just keep coming back to this must-have ride.

A consistent guest favorite, TORNADO 45 is built from award-winning technology. Available in a size for every footprint, budget and ride experience, TORNADOs offer parks a full range of thrills. A true must-have ride.
