Funfields building world’s longest CannonBOWL Funfields building world’s longest CannonBOWL

Funfields in Victoria is currently building the world’s longest ProSlide CannonBOWL water ride, dubbed the “Typhoon”.

The water slide will begin with a heart-stopping 136-metre-long flume section that propels riders down an 18-metre drop into the centre — or “bowl” — of the Typhoon.

To maximise capacity, Funfields has opted to exclusively use two-person rafts instead of a mixture of both single- and double-occupancy rafts.

The Typhoon is expected to open by the end of the year.

    This will be awesome! Maybe one day we will have a local park that’s as good as the Gold Coast parks!
