I do think this is more than a basic wave swinger. As they built it on a higher platform which may have fountains installed under the platform and spray guests like at Chessington. It will also go with the theme of the new area. Will take pictures on Monday.

Yeah I noticed it's sitting quite high up, will be interesting to see what they do with it.

Made me laugh when I saw it's a Zierer and not Zamperla for once!

I wonder if the boats are part of the rides theming or area theming?

A lot of time and effort has gone into coming up with these names 😂 Wave swinger and River Rapids. I'm hoping the next new ride is called Rollercoaster 😂
I mean it is poor don't get me wrong. But. Both river rapids and waveswinger directly fit the storyline the area follows so I guess they played it safe. Tidal Towers shows they are up for better names

Looking great! Although is it just me or does that wave swinger look really small? 🤷‍♂️
I know what you mean....on the one pic the scaling deceives the eye somewhat and it looks like a bit like the magic roundabout crossed with a toadstool! But when you see the fence panels and realise that they are all about 6 foot tall you get a different perspective.

I really like the look of it, you can spot it now on the skyline of the park and it's quite exciting to see.
