Lake Compounce is getting a new waterslide and it looks like one that roller-coaster lovers will be getting in line to try out.
“Venus Vortex will be Lake Compounce’s largest and most thrilling slide to date,” Jerry Brick, Lake Compounce’s general manager said in a statement. “This addition will further solidify our park as the go-to water park in Southern New England.”
Venus Vortex will be the first of its kind in New England, according to Lake Compounce. It’s slated to open Memorial Day weekend 2020.
It’s called the Venus Vortex because the slide looks like the mouth of a huge Venus flytrap, open and ready for its next meal.
The slide stands six-stories above the lake and takes riders through twists, turns and a dark tunnel. You will plummet down a near-vertical drop into the Venus flytrap’s jaws and your raft slides back and forth between rows of teeth.
Venus Vortex will be located right along the lake, next to Bayou Bay Wave Pool and across from Johnny Rockets.
