Our roots in competitive sports give us our energy and focus. It’s little wonder ProSlide has become the industry leader and a major global partner.

We don’t just invent
the world’s best
water slides.

Our origins: Ski racing and yacht building

Connect a professional ski racer with a master yacht builder and you have the key ingredients for the best water rides in the world.

As a former national ski team racer, ProSlide CEO Rick Hunter’s goal has always been to mirror ski racing’s smooth turns, steep grades and big drops in our water rides. When he founded ProSlide in 1986, Rick partnered with Hans Tanzer, one of the largest sailboat manufacturers in Canada. This powerful partnership introduced the highest-quality fiberglass—built to withstand harsh marine conditions—to the water park industry. To this day, ProSlide rides are known for their superior ride performance and premium quality.

Our mission: Design and build the best water rides in the world

As the top global water slide manufacturer, we make rides that differentiate our customers and thrill their guests. Rides that are cost-effective to operate, built to last and, above all, safe. We can confidently call ourselves world leaders because we’ve won more Best Ride awards than all other water ride manufacturers combined. But we’re not in it for the accolades. Our passion is fueled by a genuine love of the industry, and the people with the big vision who make it all happen.

Our credibility: We know water parks because we run one

No other ride manufacturer knows water parks better. That’s because we own and operate one of our own. That it’s built on a ski hill is just one of the reasons we’re experts in maximizing topography. Have a challenge? We get it.

Our DNA: Always innovating

When it comes to innovation, we’re in perpetual motion. We’re always looking to create the next big thing. Always striving to better our best work. That’s why we’re the trusted partner of the world’s top water parks: Disney, Wet ‘n Wild, Six Flags, Great Wolf Resorts, Center Parcs, Siam Park, OCT, Happy Magic Group and so many more.
