Standing at some 85-feet-tall, Tidal Wave was the tallest water ride in Europe when it opened in 2000. A classic “Shoot the Chute” ride, it sees guests boarding reinforced boats, which use lap bars to hold them in place. The boat then climbs to the top of the tower, before plunging down into a lagoon below that holds 3 million gallons of water. The impact causes water to shoot up into the air and soak riders, as well as shooting forwards into the 'Splash Zone' which is an area outside of the ride in which spectators can watch.
