Six Flags Darien LakeDarien Center, N.Y. Six Flags Darien Lake will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony for the water park’s newest water slide, Wahoo Wave and the rebrand of our water park to Hurricane Harbor. Experience the 60-foot-tall addition that will rank as one of the tallest water rides in Hurricane Harbor. Following a six-story climb to the top of the tower Wahoo Wave riders will twist through a hairpin turn, followed by a corkscrew. Without warning, riders in four-person tubes will plunge down an unforgettable, three-story drop. This adrenaline-packed adventure will send riders into near-vertical motions to experience extended hang times and zero g-forces.
