The newest additions to the Calgary Stampede's 2013 midway have gotten bigger and wetter.
Stampede will feature a brand new Bell aqua ranch, a pool the size of a hockey rink, with daring, high-energy stunts on jet skis and a water display show, right in the middle of cowtown.
The aqua ranch will also host Out of the Blue, a water display show complete with water and lightning special effects, that will be synced to the finale of the famous TransAlta Grandstand Show fireworks.
Another new addition includes Mach 3, a "tummy tumbler" ride which will swing thrill-seekers around a full 360 degrees.
