"Aquatica" breaks ground for new water slide

Posted: Updated:

CHULA VISTA (CBS 8) - A colorful groundbreaking Tuesday as Chula Vista waterpark Aquatica prepares for a new water slide.

Multi-colored shovels dug into the earth where the Taumata Racerwill thrill riders. When finished, the ride will zoom riders down a 375-foot slide, around a 180-degree turn and in and out of tunnels before racing them across the finish line.

Construction begins in January, and the ride should be up and running by Memorial Day weekend.
