The biggest, baddest, wettest and wildest ride is officially open at Schlitterbahn Galveston. The towering Massiv Monster Blaster is not just a water slide, but in fact, a “watercoaster” that was recently certified by the Guinness Book of World Records as the “Worlds Tallest Watercoaster.”
At 81 feet tall, the red, green and white slide is a sight to behold. The coaster utilizes a two-person inner tube and even has a translucent section where spectator can see riders in action. Massiv also utilizes modern engineering throughout the ride. To move riders up the various hills, the coasters uses Master Blaster technology. The thrill level for Massiv has been deemed “aggressive, big drops, dark, high speed, high thrill and scary.”
For those looking for something a little less “action packed,” Schiltterbahn has plenty of options for everyone big and small. From the Kristal River and its calm currents, to Shripwreck Harbor and its three-foot waves, designed for the little ones and Thunder Tub with its three-person raft.
