To kickoff this new and exciting era, Six Flags Waterworld Concord is daring sun-loving thrill seekers to ride the ultimate storm by introducing the extreme water thrill ride -- Tornado! This unique funnel-shaped rainstorm, painted in a blue and yellow checkerboard pattern, is the only one of its kind in Northern California and is slated to touch down on opening day, May 21.

Tubers will ride the ultimate storm as they are sucked into Tornado, beginning their experience 75 feet in the air by blasting down a 132-foot long tunnel, leading to the mammoth, open-ended 65-foot-wide funnel. The ride's specially designed 4-person cloverleaf shaped tubes hug the inside of the funnel, splashing back and forth on 5,000 gallons of swirling water. The experience culminates in a waterfall splash; right through the eye of the storm into a refreshing catch pool below. A spectacular viewing platform upon approach lets anxious tubers see all of the action up close.

"In 2005, guests will soak up the thrills and chills at the Bay Area's most popular water park," said Joe Meck, vice president and general manager of Six Flags Waterworld Concord. "The addition of the Six Flags brand of fun and excitement, combined with the addition of an award-winning water slide, will provide a unique experience for our visitors, friends and families to enjoy together."

Tornado's unique design has received numerous distinctions, including the amusement industry's 2003 Golden Ticket Award for Best Waterpark Ride and the IAAPA 2003 Best New Product Award in the waterpark category. Created by ProSlide Technology in Ottawa, Canada, Tornado joins a collection of more than 20 splash water park attractions at the 10-acre paradise, including favorite family water raft rides in the Big Kahuna and Honolulu Halfpipe.

Now is the best time to become part of the wet and wild excitement with a 2005 Season Pass for the incredibly low price of $54.99. The 2005 Season Pass also provides limitless fun at Six Flags Marine World, where guests can touch and feed amazing marine life at the Park's newest animal interactive experience, Ocean Discovery and conquer the "Great White" one of the tallest and fastest inline water slides at Six Flags Waterworld Sacramento.
