Thrill seekers, pay attention.
The water ride announced in September for Water Country USA in Williamsburg is slowly taking shape, according to a Busch Gardens Virginia tweet.
A photo included in the Twitter post shows a blue, yellow and orange tube stretching down a hill at the park, with a tower in the background.
“Cutback Water Coaster is starting to take shape as the pieces begin to be placed into position at the construction site,” according to the post.
Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Water Country USA, both under parent company SeaWorld, each introduced new rides Sept. 5 on Facebook: Finnegan’s Flyer at Busch Gardens and Cutback.
Finnegan’s Flyer, a “screaming swing” with two pendulum-like arms that swing guests back and forth, is under construction at Busch Gardens and slated to open this spring in Killarney Village.
Cutback at Water Country will be Virginia’s first water coaster. The ride will be 856 feet long and will take riders 35 feet per second through 76 feet of vertical drops.
Water Country USA opened May 18, according to the tweet.
