Wet 'n' Wild is gearing up for its second season with a new ride. The tornado slide takes riders on through a 45-foot-wide funnel where they spin back and fourth through the eye of the storm.
Park employees got to test out the new slide Friday before it officially opens to the public Saturday. However, it's not the only big thing helping Wet 'n' Wild kick off its summer season.
"This Memorial Day weekend we're kicking it off with a DJ and some special events, including a Twister game, which actually benefits our friends over at Opportunity Village," Trevor Wilson with the water park said.
This is the second year the park has been open. It starts its daily schedule Saturday. This year they are also offering more parking and shaded areas along with longer hours.
