Aquaman: Power Wave is a steel launched water shuttle roller coaster at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington, Texas, USA. The attraction is a Mack Rides PowerSplash that replaced Aquaman Splashdown. It is the first PowerSplash in America. The roller coaster opened on March 11, 2023.[1]


On August 29, 2019, it was announced that Aquaman: Power Wave would be added to Six Flags Over Texas.[2]

Aquaman: Power Wave was originally set to open in 2020, but the coronavirus pandemic put the opening on hold. While Six Flags planned to open the attraction in 2021, the opening was delayed to 2022 due to financial issues caused by the pandemic.[3]

It was confirmed on August 5, 2021 that it was scheduled to open in the summer of 2022.[4] On July 6, 2022, the park announced the ride's opening was delayed until spring 2023.[5] The delays allowed Six Flags management to reassess and address the chain's initiative to increase ride capacity, and a turntable was added to accommodate a second boat.[6] Northwest Coasters oversaw the ride's construction.

Aquaman: Power Wave opened on March 11, 2023.[7]
