Six Flags Hurricane Harbor to add new water slide in 2014

Six Flags Over Texas won't be getting any new big rides next year, but Hurricane Harbor will get a new "multi-featured water slide."

The announcement came as the Grand Prairie-based theme park company released its annual plans for new attractions at its 18 parks.

While a new roller coaster is planned in Chicago and other big thrill rides will be added in New Jersey, Washington, D.C and the Boston area, improvements to the Arlington park will be limited to the children's area where they will add "an interactive play area, some new rides and more places for parents to sit.

No word in the release on the state of the park's biggest attraction, the Texas Giant, will has been shut down since mid-July when a 52-year-old woman fell tio her death from the coaster. Six Flags is handling the investigation into the fatal accident. The $10 million, 16-sitory attraction had just reopened this season after a major renovation.
