Alberta Falls is a water slide which usually consists of a set of two separate slides which are located inside the Bear Track Landing Waterpark at most Great Wolf Lodge locations. They are four stories (43 feet/13.10 meters) tall and involve the rider going through swiftly banking turns and steep pitches at fast speeds. Riders go outside the building and back inside before plunging. These are usually the slides that can be seen from outside the waterpark building.
Sandusky's Alberta Falls has two sides, one taking place nigh-entirely outdoors via a tunnel, and another taking place with an indoor pre-tunnel turn.
Traverse City is nearly the same as Sandusky's, but the colors of the slides are reversed, blue being for the indoor slide, and green being for the outdoor slide.
Kansas City was the first to feature the type of layout that would have one with only an outdoor tunnel at the end and one that has the entire layout as an outdoor tunnel, the latter one has since became The Triple Twist, leaving the indoor one to be the only one left in it's original form.
