Cyclone Saucers, the FIRST EVER North American installation of ProSlide’s FlyingSAUCER ride.  This history-making, ground breaking water slide will offer a very unique ride experience.  Riders will fly around the edge of three “flying saucers” at high speeds.  At nearly 500 feet long with a 55 foot elevation change, Cyclone Saucers is truly a one-of-a-kind experience. Joining Cyclone Saucers in 2016 are three more new iconic rides . . . 

Tidal Wave positions riders face to face as they surge up a thrilling wall and hang weightless before rocketing back down. 

Riptide features an intense dark ride section, before plummeting into two separate funnels.

Polynesian Plunge drops riders from the top of the slide tower into a swirling bowl.

**All four slides are being custom designed for Beech Bend  Park by ProSlide Technology, Inc.  The new rides are expected to open in June of 2016.***

In addition to these awesome new water park attractions, Beech Bend has just completed installation of its brand new family roller coaster, Spinning Out!

Spinning Out is themed like a race car, spinning out of control in a spectacular back to back seating configuration.  Each car holds four people, a perfect size for the entire family, and the cars will spin freely throughout the ride, delivering different ride experiences each time the weight distributions change!
