BRAND NEW WATER SLIDES!!!Water slide names
The Greek gods have arrived and 60-foot tall water slides have risen on US Route 1 in Saco.

The six Mount Olympus Water Slides at Splashtown USA are the Poseidon\’s Plunge, Triton\’s Twist and the four-lane Amphitrite\’s Challenge.

These state-of-the-art slides are some of the biggest thrills in New England water parks. Poseidon and Triton have launch capsules, sending guests down at nearly 40 feet per second.

These water slides are part of a multimillion dollar expansion and renovation to Funtown Splashtown USA including three new food stands, a new candy story, new and renovated restrooms, an expanded wading pool, a new games building, a new Funtoberfest Beer Garden, and new group picnic areas.

The Grand Opening celebration for the new Mount Olympus Water Slides will be held on Saturday June 23.
