A southern Indiana amusement park in May will unveil what it touts as the world's longest water coaster. The $5.5 million
Wildebeest ride will open May 14 at Holiday World & Splashin' Safari. The ride will be a third of a mile long and
use a conveyor system to take riders up a lift hill before dropping them 38 feet. The ride uses a magnetic field under the
slide surface to move the toboggan-style rafts up hills. Park officials say the technology has been used in steel roller coasters
in the past.
