Aqua Rocket Aqua Rocket is a coaster-style slide that uses magnetic propulsion to propel a raft up hills.

Amazon Adventure The Amazon Adventure is a quarter-mile-long, 3-foot-deep (0.9 m), tropical river that runs through a section of the park. Riders sit in rafts as the current pulls them around the river route.

Dark Hole The Dark Hole is a system of two fiberglass tunnels with a total drop of fifty-two feet. Riders used to sit in a single person raft identical to the ones used in Amazon River, but as of 2016 riders sit in a two-person raft speeding through the total darkness of the long flumes, the first of its kind in the country. Riders travel at a speed of 26 miles per hour.[4]

Dragon's Den This slide debuted in 2004 and is a two-rider tube ride that sends guests plummeting down a steep 45-foot (14 m) tunnel,[4] circling around a 35-foot (11 m) bowl 9-foot (2.7 m) until they fall though a secret tunnel at the bottom. As of 2016, Dragon's Den is ridden as a single-rider with tubes identical to the ones used in Amazon River. The current record for complete revolutions of the bowl before exiting is six (6) revolutions, held by Mykel Pickens and Marcus Thomas of Victorville, CA.

DropOut DropOut is a seven-story body slide. Riders plunge at a near free fall, reaching speeds close to 40 miles per hour. Some riders will lift off the slide when coming down.[4]

High Extreme Standing at 10 stories[citation needed], High Extreme sends riders through 600-foot (180 m) flumes, reaching speeds of up to thirty-five miles per hour. This ride originally used a toboggan-like raft for single riders; however, for many years thereafter only the two-person raft was used. As of 2006, the head-first toboggans returned and guests could choose between the two. In 2007, use of the double tubes was again discontinued, in favor of the head-first toboggans.

Ragin' Racer Riders race down the eight-lane slide on head-first toboggan mats similar to those used on High Extreme. At eight lanes and over 200 feet (61 m) long, Ragin' Racer is the largest slide of its type in the country. Going up to 34 miles per hour.[citation needed].

Wave Cove The Wave Cove is one of Raging Water's oldest and most popular attractions[citation needed]. It is a million-gallon pool with fan blades at the deep end, producing waves of up to three feet. Riders may be in the pool with or without an inner tube.

FlowRider FlowRider Debuting in 2007, riders ride on a boogie board on a jet-made continuous wave that moves 36,000 gallons of water per minute. Riders may perform tricks and other stunts at their own discretion. Although similar rides can be found throughout the US, FlowRider is the first of its kind at Raging Waters.

Neptune's Fury Neptune's Fury is a closed tube ride in which 3 or 4 people sit together. It is dark inside to cause disorientation. This 600-foot-long (180 m) wild ride plunges the raft into total darkness through a 108-inch-diameter (270 cm) tunnel and down a 60-foot (18 m) drop at 30 miles per hour.

Bermuda Triangle Bermuda Triangle consists of three twisting, turning, downward tunnels that recycle more than 2,500 gallons of water a minute and make riders feel like they have entered the Bermuda Triangle.

Vortex The Vortex is a four-story tower featuring two enclosed, 270-foot-long spiral body flumes.

Splash Island Adventure A tropical-themed collection of 75 activities – including four slides, water cannons, web crawl tunnels, spiral cargo nets and swinging bridges. Splash Island’s centerpiece is a 1,000-gallon bucket atop a five-story tower that tips hundreds of gallons of water over the whole attraction every few minutes.

Dr. Von Dark's Tunnel of Terror A slide in which riders experience a 40 feet drop into a dark tunnel. Riders will then drop into a small mini funnel.
