I saw those too. Still an interesting placement to me but I'm very excited for the addition.

In photo number three it looks like the Tsunami Surge support comes really close for MaxForce riders on the left side.

Likely a perspective thing and it's not really that close...

I mean they are hella close to one another. I'm actually surprised how it's fitting in, especially the catch pool right alongside the activity pool in Riptide Bay.

It looks like the heartline roll on Maxx comes very close to the Tsunami track?? I'm wondering if any water will splash onto Maxx riders?

Disregard. It's a perspective issue. I watched Rob's video and from a different angle in Viper's queue they look a bit further apart.

No it really is crazy close. On ride it's a definite near miss that honestly adds to Maxx now. I posted an off-ride video of its interaction on Instagram @coaststocoasters if you wanna see it.

The ride will apparently be opened for members and season pass holders when Hurricane harbor reopens.

"Exclusive slide time". Love that. Luckily, no one else wanted a similar attraction in 2020 or 2021 that could have opened before Tsunami to claim the title.

Howdy all. Not sure if this video has been posted already but TS has been testing and looks pretty fun in my opinion.

Stupid question: do they test Tsunami with water dummies before sending people?? The video says they're testing with people.

Tsunami Surge looks like a great addition to Hurricane Harbor! It looks like a lot of fun! I’m not sure if I’d want to go on it when it’s 52 degrees though haha. https://youtu.be/xJ60f5tOXwQ

One of my students who works as a lifeguard there got to test ride it and he called it scary.
