SACO, Maine — Funtown Splashtown USA in Saco plans to expand its water park before next season, adding a tower with six additional water slides.

Officials say the tower will have two levels, with the tallest one reaching 60 feet skyward. People using the tallest tower will stand in clear capsules before the floor drops, sending them hurtling downward at 40 feet per second.

Ken Cormier, founder and CEO of Funtown Splashtown, says the expansion will also include a water slide that goes through the loop of another.

The water slide tower will be located at the current Kartland Picnic Area. The park will be opening a new restaurant and restroom as part of the project.
