Water Country USA Revamps Aquazoid Amped

YORK-Aquazoid Amped will debut its redesigned look in May 2022 as the latest addition to fan-favorite waterslides and rides at Water Country USA.

Described as a full-sensory, immersive ride offering guests a special effects show, pulse-pounding music, and dynamic lighting effects, riders plunge down 864 feet in a fully enclosed, twisting tube at speeds of 20 feet per second.

“Aquazoid Amped is a ride that encompasses the ultimate experience for our guests,” said park President Kevin Lembke in a press release. “From the exhilarating lights and soundtrack to the enhanced water thrills, this is a perfect complement to our park’s attraction portfolio, and highlights our dedication to providing new experiences and making our award-winning park even better.”

Water Country USA Williamsburg, the largest waterpark in Virginia, was recently voted one of the Top 4 outdoor waterparks in the country by USA Today’s 2021 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards. For more information, visit
