Shipwreck Falls is a Shoot-the-Chute water ride at many Herschend and Six Flags theme parks, in the United States. The attraction is themed to sharks and shipwrecks, and all feature an exit bridge over the ride so guests can get wet while exiting.

Darien Lake[edit]

Darien Lake's version has water cannons that spray riders with water for a small fee. The ride replaced "Cascade Canyon", an older set of water slides that were in Barracuda Bay.

Geauga Lake[edit]

Shipwreck Falls at Geauga Lake was located across from the Big Dipper. It was manufactured by Hopkins Rides. It was relocated to Celebration City after the close of the park in 2007 where became known as Roaring Falls in 2008.

Six Flags New England[edit]

Shipwreck Falls at Six Flags New England was removed in September 2011 to make room for Goliath, a Giant Inverted Boomerang roller coaster.[1]
