Taumata Racer®

For those who prefer life in the fast lane, the new Taumata Racer® high-speed racing water slide at Aquatica SeaWorld San Diego will zoom riders down a 375-foot slide, around a 180-degree swooping turn, and in and out of tunnels before racing them across the finish line.

Named for a famous hill in New Zealand, Taumata is short for the 85-letter Maori word “Taumata¬ whakatangihanga¬ koauau¬ o¬ tamatea¬ turi¬ pukakapiki¬ maunga¬ horo¬ nuku¬ pokai¬ whenua- kitanatahu.” Roughly translated, this Guinness Book of World Records word means “The summit where Tamatea, the man with the big knees, the climber of mountains, the land-swallower who traveled about, played his flute to his loved one.”
