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.”

Guests must be 42" to ride, must be able to maintain proper riding position holding on to both handles unassisted.

Maximum rider weight is 300 lbs.
