    Six Flags Over Texas and Hurricane Harbor will both be getting new attractions for the 2020 season, the park revealed Thursday morning.

    "Aquaman Power Wave" will replace the now defunct "Aquaman" ride near the park's entrance.

    The new water coaster will launch riders back-and-forth along a 700-foot track and up two 15-story towers, before taking one final plunge into a pool of water -- soaking everyone on board.

    Six Flags says it is the first ride of its kind in North America.

    The death toll from Typhoon Hagibis climbed to 53 on Tuesday, days after it tore through Japan and left hundreds of thousands of homes wrecked, flooded or out of power. Hagibis caused more than 200 rivers to overflow when it hit the island nation on Saturday.

    Hurricane Harbor will receive a new water slide complex called "Banzai Pipeline" that will feature three tube slides.

    The water park says guests will be able to ride by themselves or in tandem with friends.

    Six Flags Over Texas also announced Thursday that it will now operate year-round, no longer closing from early January to March.
