The world's longest water coaster, Wildebeest boasts 1710 feet, or one-third mile, of track. It delivers a two-and-a-half minute ride featuring uphill surges powered by magnetically charged linear induction motors (LIM).
The Theme Parks Guide says:I was surprised that Omaka Rocka, the wild-looking mini-funnel ride at the popular Aquatica didn't generate more votes. And Scorpion's Tail, with its trap-door launch chamber and its 100-foot long drop into a nearly (and gnarly? What, too dated?) vertical loop certainly warrants some water park love. But Wildebeest, which breaks another record at Holiday World, was the ride to beat. It gives yet another reason for park fans to make their migration to the out-of-the-way park.
