Shotgun Falls

The Grin on Your Face Will be the Smoking Gun.

There are few things on Earth faster than a speeding bullet shooting out of a gun. Now you’re going to get the experience of not just firing a gun, but being the bullet! Shotgun Falls is designed to blast you into the water faster than you can say “bullseye!”

This is a four-slide thrill-fest complex that is going to get the job done and get it done quick. You’ll have to choose whether you want to ride through an open or enclosed barrel, because Shotgun Falls has both. We’re fairly sure that you are going to have to try all four just to be sure.

There’s no gunpowder, but 2,000 gallons of water per minute should do the trick of igniting your journey on the swift blast into the pool. That water is pouring so hard over the edge of the slide it sounds like a raging waterfall. Down you go out of the barrel — and the second half of the trajectory is pure air as you shoot out over the surface of the pool. You’ll dunk underwater as fast as an Olympic diver, although you’ll probably have a bit more splash. But considering that you were bone dry just a moment ago, this is what we’d call “instant gratification.”
