The brand-new Aqua Drag Racer water slide is slated to open on June 12 at Wet 'n Wild. The water park, located on International Drive near I-4, is celebrating the grand opening in a big way. On the Thursday morning that the ride opens, the park will hand out one-time-use Express wristbands to the first 500 guests. That means they can hop in the fast line to do watery rides with little to no wait.

The park opens at 9:30 a.m. that morning, but you'll want to get there early if you're aiming for a chance to get one of the wristbands. Otherwise, you can enjoy Aqua Drag Racer all summer and purchase Express access any day.

According to Michael Black Dr., Vice President and General Manager of the park, "The Aqua Drag Racer adds to our already exciting lineup of one-of-a-kind attractions. We have more rides and more multi-person thrill rides than any other water park in Central Florida and this new attraction offers yet another way for you and your family to share the rush together."

Wet 'n Wild isn't the only water park with a new attraction this year. Jump to this article to read about Ihu's Breakaway Falls, which opened recently at Aquatica.
