    Federal Heights Hyland Hills Water World got even bigger this morning with the opening of TurboRacer, an eight-track water slide that shoots patrons at up to 22 mph on 410 feet of track.

    "This is the funnest ride here, I think," said Scotty Backman, 47, a race-car driver from the Colorado National Speedway, who joined seven other people in being the first racers.

    At 61 feet tall, the ride is touted by Water World as the tallest of its kind in the world. Riders lay on their bellies on a blue foam mat and slide through a tube and sharp turns.

    "You get some air when you come out of the tube," Backman said. A line of hundreds of eager riders snaked along a sidewalk next to the attraction, some waiting since 10 a.m. for

    "Ever since I saw the (construction) in the parking lot, I wanted to go on it," said Collin Kinchen, 11.

    Today, his birthday, he got his wish.

    Cool.

    Waterworld really is the most innovative waterpark in the country. . .almost makes up for how lame Elitch Gardens is.

    Water World is, or at least was, a great park. Haven't been there in years...hence the past tense.

    I'm too old to be seen in a bathing suit, so motivationt to go wavers.

    Schlitterbahn and Blizzard Beach are both much better parks than WaterWorld (imho)

    Haven't been to either. But one thing Waterworld wil always have on them is dark, themed water rides. For someone days away from either American Disney park, that's quite a draw.
