Tortuga Tortuga is a tan tube slide in the heart of the park.

Fire And Ice The newest additions to the park. Fire is an enclosed body slide with an alternating red and white design. Ice is also a body slide, opening up about halfway down. Ice is decorated in much the same way as Fire with blue substituting for red. Fire and Ice replaced Stingray and Sharkbait for the 2007 season.
