Don’t underestimate the possibility of high-adrenaline thrills at Kings Island’s Soak City Water Park. One attraction in particular has something the adrenaline-seeker in the family won’t be able to get enough of.

Debuting last summer and towering nearly seven stories, Topical Plunge features six different water slide experiences.

Three of the slides on the 65-foot tall complex start with guests climbing inside an Aqua-Launch chamber where they wait anxiously for the floor to drop out from underneath their feet, sending them into a high-speed, almost vertical free fall through a series of flat loops and S-curves in a translucent flume.

Tropical Plunge also features a slide that sends riders twisting and spiraling through an enclosed chute featuring four intense 360-degree loops across 449 feet of slide before they’re released out into a pool of water and dueling 337-foot long tube slides that zip riders through an enchanting series of drops and turns.

No matter how many times you experience the slides on Tropical Plunge, it’s never the same experience twice. Each guest’s ride is a fun, thrilling and unique experience.

Soak City Waterpark is open daily through August 20; weekends August 26-27, September 2-4 and included with park admission to Kings Island.
