Sandcastle Announces New Bombs Away, Six-Story Looping Body Slide for Summer 2020 Season
Sandcastle announces new attraction for 2020, Bombs Away.

Pittsburgh, PA ., August 12, 2019 - Sandcastle, Pittsburgh’s best family waterpark, announces the newest addition to its attraction lineup for the upcoming 2020 season – Bombs Away, a high altitude, looping free-fall body slide.

Opening early next summer, Bombs Away will take riders to a towering height of more than six-stories. Once they reach the top, riders will enjoy a breathtaking view of the Monongahela River before stepping into an enclosed, launch capsule. Riders will enter the launch capsule, stand on the platform, and wait for it to suddenly vanish. When the heart pounding countdown ends, the floor drops open and guests rush through the intense tidal flow of the flat line loop. Riders are sent free falling at 26 feet per second before safely making their final splash in the runout below.


“We’re excited to welcome Bombs Away to our existing collection of attractions that our guests have grown to love,” said Tom Radovic, General Manager for Sandcastle. "We're certain this new experience will be an instant favorite."

Bombs Away will be located adjacent the Park’s Lightning Express speed slide and promises to be as thrilling to watch as it is to experience, allowing spectators to view riders taking the plunge through its vibrant, translucent orange, blue and white layout.

Those who can't wait to ride Bombs Away next summer, can follow the progress of the ride with exclusive updates, interviews, statistics and renderings on the Park’s social channels @SandcastleWaterpark or at SandcastleWaterpark.com.

With the addition of Bombs Away, guests now have yet another reason to enjoy another summer of fun with a 2020 season pass! Next year’s passes are on sale for a limited time for as low as $39.99 and include the remainder of the 2019 season.
