Darien Lake Theme Park Resort will open Saturday for the season and will debut its two new rides: Brain Drain and Rolling Thunder.
The theme park will open at 10:30 a.m.
The new rides are the result of a $2.5 million capital investment. Brain Drain is a 70-foot-high waterslide, which features a 38-foot-per-second free fall, followed by a 360-degree spirals the rider is ejected into a pool of water. Rolling Thunder is a seven-story high-speed coaster that travels on a vertical, circular steel loop, whipping riders around and around the hoop – backward, forward and upside down at 10 revolutions per minute. The ride can carry 24 to 32 passengers at a time.
Other additions for the 2015 season include in-park family concerts and dive-in movie series. For more information, visit www.darienlake.com.
