In the heart of Hard Rock Park lies one the parks few attractions that incorporates water. Slippery When Wet (likely named after the Bon Jovi album) is a suspended coaster designed by Premier Rides. It is similar to Carowinds Flying Super Saturator and Hersheyparks Roller Soaker. Each car holds four riders, two facing frontward and two facing backward. Unique to Slippery, the ride begins with a hydraulic elevator lift. After the four or five story climb, the car begins its winding path.

Meanwhile, onlookers can man large water canons and take aim at the riders flying overhead. Its almost certain that you will get wet. Aside from the canons, the train passes through a wall of sprinkling water towards the end. While riders are in danger of getting sprayed, they do have a way to retaliate. Every car features a green button that sends a radio signal to shower heads above the people that are using the canons. The buttons werent operational when I was there, but it sounds like revenge will be sweet.
Obviously, Slippery cant compare to some of the other more thrilling rides, but it does play a nice support role and helps to round out the parks lineup. Final Rating - 6.0 (Above Average)
