The authentic, original TORNADO

A high-speed adventure ride, the TORNADO 18 is the only true funnel water ride defining the best parks in the world. It features twist in-runs and straight in-runs for unique ride experiences and the best design for multiple TORNADO experiences in one ride path. The patented reducing-radius funnel treats guests to a one-of-a-kind experience of fast sweeping oscillations and zero gravity moments at the equator line.

Ride Features

  • Patented reducing-radius funnel with upwardly closing geometry
  • Designed with an 18-foot radius for a faster ride experience
  • A smaller radius design allows for a faster, tighter footprint and ride experience

TORNADO 18 - Ride Experience

The smallest and most aggressive speeds, the TORNADO 18 allows for multiple funnels in one ride for a dynamic, high-energy experience and can accommodate a smaller space

Riders accelerate and decelerate in the funnel with several quick oscillations

Patented reducing-radius creates drops and dives of varying degrees that enable strong G-forces creating a high-speed experience

After two to three oscillations, guests narrow the end of the funnel and start to decelerate and move towards the next part of the ride


We are transforming water parks around the world with our award-winning innovations year after year.
