Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Water Park has released a video simulation of MASSIV, the new water coaster under construction.

MASSIV's riders will sit in tubes and be propelled along the 900-foot slide by water jets. The ride is estimated to cost $3.5 million and is promised to be the tallest water coaster in the world. It is the first new ride to be built since 2014.

MASSIV will open later this year.
