Noah's Ark Waterpark essay contest winner will receive lifetime park passes - entry deadline May 1

Wisconsin Dells, WI (PRWEB) April 21, 2011 - Would a thrill-seeker prefer being catapulted up and over the steep and winding vertical drops of a coaster-style water ride OR being released from 10 stories high, plummeting at nearly 40 mph into a looping waterslide? Noah’s Ark Waterpark is asking those who dare to pick their poison in 2011. Votes will be tallied and one lucky participant will receive two, lifetime season passes to America’s largest Waterpark at the end of the 2011 summer season.


The two rides are “Black Anaconda,” a giant serpent-like water coaster over one-quarter of a mile in length, and “Scorpion’s Tail,” a launch rocket that plummets into a freefall down an enclosed chute at a top speed of nearly 40 mph into a looping waterslide. Beloved by many and feared by countless others, these titans of terror are uniquely qualified to earn the title of America’s most thrilling water ride. Black Anaconda is the nation’s longest water coaster. Scorpion’s Tail is North America’s first and tallest looping waterslide.

The contest begins on Tuesday, April 12, when Noah’s Ark initiates a search to find two “Chief Thrill Riders” who will hit the campaign trail and stump for their candidates. Those who seek the title of chief thrill rider must submit an essay in support of their ride of choice with details of how they would rally the votes for either Black Anaconda or Scorpion’s Tail. Essays can be submitted on the park’s Facebook page through Sunday, May 1. Five finalists for each ride will be determined and people will be able to vote for their favorite thrill rider on Facebook. The two essay winners will be announced on Monday, May 23, and each will receive two Noah’s Ark season passes for the summer 2011.

Noah’s Ark will work with the campaign managers to help them fulfill their campaign promises. Voting for either Black Anaconda or Scorpion's Tail will take place throughout the summer on Noah’s Ark’s website and at the park. On Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 5, America’s most thrilling water ride will be revealed and one winner will receive two, lifetime season passes to Noah’s Ark.
