Background: Infinity Racers is a pair of space-themed, racing head-first mat slides. At a whopping eight stories tall and as long as three space stations, Infinity Racers delivers a fun, only one in the world, water slide experience. Both of the racing slides are nearly fully enclosed the entire time (except for the loading and splash zones) with multi-colored fiberglass that creates unique lighting effects inside each slide.
