    Are there any watercoasters in CA?

    So last summer when I was dating a girl that lived in Texas I flew out to see her and being that we're both theme park/roller coaster junkies visited Six Flags Over Texas.

    We intended on visiting Schlitterbahn, but felt the drive from Ft. Worth to San Antonio would be daunting so instead opted to visit NRH20, a local waterpark. And it was there that I first discovered the watercoaster.

    I got on it like 5 times, before we called it a day. So now that we're broken up I have no reason to go to Texas, but I have a craving for a watercoaster. Why don't any parks in So Cal have any?

    I can imagine how expensive they are, but it would be worth it. Surely Raging Waters or possibly Soak City can build one. I don't want to have to go to Texas to ride a watercoaster. Where is the closest watercoaster? Somebody please help!
    I meant to do that... a little shortcut

    What is a water coaster? LIke a log ride? There is a log ride in Nor-cal at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.

    To live would be an awfully big adventure.

    I don't know anything about it...but don't we have parks like "Knott's Soak City" near Knott's Berry Farm, and Hurricane Harbor near SFMM, and Raging Waters in San Dimas? Maybe they're closed now? Do they not have these "water coasters"?

    What is a Water Coaster?, I think this is NOT what the OP had in mind....

    I think THIS is what the OP is talking about....

    And I know of no California Water Park that offers the Water Park version of a Water Coaster....

    A water coaster isn't exactly a typical water slide. Throughout parts of the slide there are high pressure water "jets" if you will, that can push the raft up a hill, etc.

    Exactly, a watercoaster uses powerful jets of water to proel riders uphill, much like a chain lift carries riders on a traditional roller coater. Hence the term water-coaster. Quite an awesome experience. And surprisingly, no water parks in SoCal have one.

    If your takling about "Master Blaster" type water coasters, then no, there are none in CA. Personally I thought Master Blaster at Schlitterbahn was highly overrated, but still fun.

    If your talking about Mack watercoasters, then yes there is one. Journey to Atlantis at Sea World, but it's not great.

    No JTA is not great but its unique and I like that. It snot your average log ride nor is it your average Bigfoot Rapids or your GRR. Im sure they are expensize but Knotts or DCA should get a Mack Water Coaster, that would be a great change and addition!

    You're one of the first I've heard to admit that "Master Blaster" is overrated. It seems to me that most people are so entralled with the technology (not to mention hype), it's like heresy to down talk it. That said, having never been on it, I have no idea if I'd agree with you or not.

    Also high on my list-- although it's not a watercoaster-- are the two water "dark rides" at Waterworld in Denver (journey to the center of the earth and ... ???). They're ~five minute raft rides most people seem to LOVE.

    I just have to say that "Schlitterbahn" is the funniest name for a ride EVER!!!!

    That is all.
