Park News - (8/30/18) Check out this awesome 4K POV video just show of the Rampage wooden coaster at Alabama Splash Adventure. Definitely high on my list of wooden coasters I still need to ride.
(1/5/18) As part of a little bit of fun with the end of the college football season, Alabama Splash Adventure and Six Flags over Georgia have entered into a friendly wager over the outcome of the upcoming national championship game between the Alabama Crimson Tide and George Bulldogs. The loser will have to temporarily rename one of their coasters for the park’s opening weekend.
If Alabama wins, then Six Flags over Georgia will rename their Georgia Scorcher coaster as the “Alabama Scorcher”.
In Georgia wins, then Alabama Splash Adventure will rename their Rampage coaster as the “Georgia Rampage”.
(7/15/15) Alabama Splash Adventure is a park in the middle of an identify crisis... having been a full theme park / waterpark combo experience, and later reduced to just a waterpark only for years by previous owners. Now the current ownership want to try and bring back the dry rides side of the park, piece by piece... so you might be wondering just what that looks like right now. As I'm sure you guessed, it looks a little odd, as a video from In The Loop shows us, there are lots of closed restaurant buildings ride queues leading to empty concrete pads for rides that are no longer there. But with infrastructure still in place, it will only make it easier for them to put new rides back into the park.
2018 - New Kids Slide Complex, Five New Rides and More - (2/15/18) Alabama Splash Adventure has posted a new video to talk about the park's 2018 expansion plans. This includes the addition of "The Royal Train'... which really is a train themed tram that rides along the pathways and not a true train on tracks, but it will still move you around the park. They are also adding a Zamperla Rockin' Tug, a Scrambler, a Tilt-A-Whirl and a Yo-Yo.
On top of the five new rides, they are also adding a new high dive show called the Dueling Pirates Show as well as the Splash Island kids slide structure area that was previously announced.
For the wondering, some good comments were posted by Dan Koch on Facebook. When asked about the status of the old log ride, he said that they had no plans to reopen it at this time. The old log flume would require at least $2 million to get up and running again and that it only had the capacity to run 400 guests per hour. Meanwhile that same $2 million could purchase new waterslides capable of thrilling 2,000 guests per hour. So with that logic in mind, he's right... the old log flume just isn't the right choice for the park right now, especially if you factor in the high maintenance costs of a water ride as well. But there is a sliver of hope for the old flume, that "One day...." it could happen. Just not right now.
(10/20/17) Some pieces of the new attraction coming to Alabama Splash Adventure are on site and y ou can see photos posted to the CoasterAddict Facebook page.
(10/14/17) Alabama Splash Adventure has announced a new attraction coming to the waterpark for 2018. It will be a new kids slide complex and play structure opening in May 2018 featuring five colorful slides that empty into shallow water for the little ones and a zero-depth water play area. In addition the park will add new cabana and seating areas around the attraction area so parents can keep cool and be close to their kids. The park doesn't have a name for the new attraction yet, but they are accepting name suggestions on their website, with the winner to get four free season passes.
2019 - New Attractions - (11/21/18) Alabama Splash Adventure announced three new attractions are on the way for 2019: FreeFall (new waterslide), Galleon (swing ship), and Twister (new waterslide).
(9/1/18) A couple of quick updates about Alabama Splash Adventure. For starters... no... the park is not hosting the Golden Ticket Awards in 2019... this has been confirmed by the park as well. They do confirm that they would like to do it in the future, but just not yet.
Alabama Splash Adventure also confirmed that the 2018 was their best year in the past seven seats in terms of attendance, which is fantastic. Assuming this pattern of growth continues, the park's future growth plans will also continue to get bigger and better very quickly. That said, an official announcement about what they have planned in 2019 is coming in the next couple weeks. While it remains a secret... they did confirm to Screamscape that it is not yet time to add a new coaster to the park. So what else would you like to see added?
