Tidal Wave takes you up 85 foot into the air up the slow lift hill with the sun beaming on you. However don't be distracted by the amazing view, you're about to be drenched in about 30 seconds. The other side of the bend is a plunge into the icy cold water. And that's without the bystanders putting money in the water guns located at the end of the ride. Best to leave this ride till a very hot day.
