Just 34 feet shorter than mighty Niagara Falls, Knott's new thrill ride in the Boardwalk themed area sends guests in 24-passenger boats up a 121-foot-tall lift before plummeting them down a world-record 115-foot water chute at a revolutionary 75-degree angle -- just 15 degrees from a sheer vertical, waterfall like drop-off!
