GALVESTON (1080 KRLD) - Soon you can enjoy Infinity Racers.

You go head first in the enclosed racing slides. It's 75 feet tall and 696 feet long. The multi-million dollar project at Schlitterbahn Waterpark Galveston Island features two slides. 

One of the slides, named Orbiter, features circles of multi-colored fiberglass in different sections of the ride while the other, Galaxy, features dashes of multi-colored fiberglass.

Schlitterbahn chose to add a space theme to the slides in honor of the men and women of NASA and the Johnson Space Center, who have inspired the world to reach for the stars. It's scheduled to open in June.
