FRIGHTENING BOLT | As the name suggests, this terrifying drop water slide will have your stomach turning as the floor opens up from underneath you and your are shot into the dark twists and turns of the tallest drop slide at sea! You will jump into the pod and the door will shut, with the sound of thunder roaring as you wait in terror for the drop. It all happens when you least expect it, and you won't be able to hold back your scream as your fly down and into the cork-screw turns that will have you smiling and laughing by the time you reach the bottom. It's the ultimate thrill onboard.

PRESSURE DROP | If being dropped straight down an enclosed tunnel on Frightening Bolt wasn't enough for you, try Pressure Drop, the first ever open freefall waterslide at sea. Here you lay back, cross your arms, and slide over the edge and straight down, high above the Surfside Family Neighborhood 13 decks below, with a straight shot right to the end. It's about 3 seconds of absolute terror and fun!

STORM CHASERS | You and a friend can grab a mat, and race head-to-head in these dueling water slides. The best part is that it doesn't matter if one of you gets a head start, because your speed is calculated at the end, so you will know for sure who won the race once you reach the bottom.

HURRICANE HUNTER | The whole family can enjoy this water slide together, as the raft seats up to 4 people, and you are spun into the dark enclosed tunnel, winding down several stories in this fun raft ride!

STORM SURGE | Icon boasts 2 raft water slides, and Storm Surge is no joke. Grab a friend or 3, and hop in the raft and start twisting and turning your way downward. Halfway through you will shoot out into a bowl suspended off the side of the ship, with a clear bottom, so you can see all the way down to the ocean below before being plummeted back into darkness in this insane water ride!
