What's 662 feet of swirling, splashing fun? Tampa Bay's newest, biggest water ride: the Colossal Curl at Adventure Island.

Busch Gardens Tampa's water park opens on Saturday, so find a friend (or three) and get ready to get wet.

Aaron Jacobson, a producer with AM Tampa Bay on 970 WFLA radio, took the plunge during Media Day on Wednesday. That's him in the video above.

You do have to be 48 inches tall to ride this ride, so make sure your friends are at least as tall as you are.

Climb the 114 steps to the top of the Colossal Curl's tower and what will you see?

First, a pretty nice few of downtown's skyline several miles to the south.

But then there's the gaping, 9-foot-wide tunnel waiting to take you on a wild 42-second ride.

The curtain of water falling across the opening makes sure nobody comes out of this ride dry!

Each clover leaf-shaped raft carries two to four riders down the twisting tube of rushing water.

Just when you think you're nearly finished, you slide sideways up the towering Water Wall for a Zero G moment before dipping back into the tunnel for the final leg of the ride.

Splash down in the pool at the bottom and jump back in line for another ride!

If you're looking for something a little more laid back, the Colossal Curl sits circled by the park's Lazy River. Smaller rides stand nearby.

But who needs that when you can get your heart pumping on the Colossal Curl?
