"Tsunami Soaker is the perfect complement to our lineup of thrills," said Dave Roemer, Six Flags St. Louis park president. "Guests of all ages are going to have a blast on this ride spraying fellow riders and being sprayed. Adding to the fun, bystanders can arm themselves with water cannons from the sidelines and squirt riders as they go by. This really is an interactive experience for everyone!" 

The floor of Tsunami Soaker spins in a clockwise direction, while nine boats individually rotate with a total of 54 riders equipped with giant water cannons launch streams of water at other boats and bystanders. The main floor of the ride disappears into the water once riders have been seated. As the floor descends, water fills and boats will actually float as they rotate.

On hand today for the preview of Tsunami Soaker was Olympic Swimmer David Tarwater. Tarwater grew up in Knoxville, TN and won a Gold Medal in the 2012 London Games for the 800m Free Relay and holds titles in many World Championship and U.S. National competitions.
