ProSlide opens first FreeFALL with SkyBOX in Europe

Skara Sommarland’s 60km/h speed slide!

“ProSlide has helped us set a new standard for extreme-thrill speed slides in Europe”, says Hans Ericsson, CEO, Skara Sommarland. “And no one is happier than our guests!”

The team at Skara Sommarland is taking the plunge with their new Big Drop speed slide. The 82-meter slide has a 21-meter drop and a unique design where riders travel underground. To maximize the thrills, the FreeFALL is equipped with ProSlide’s newest SkyBOX launch system, the first of its kind in Europe.

The ProSlide SkyBox is the safest drop gate in the industry and adds a new level of excitement to speed slides. Features include a redundant water-monitoring system that’s integrated with the pumps; automated doors with a safety interlock system; the highest safety-rated sensors, pneumatics, control systems and much more.

This is the second consecutive ProSlide installation at Skara Sommarland, after launching a 6-lane ProRACER™ in 2012.

Other iconic European installations this summer include Europe’s tallest FreeFALL™ at Port Aventura (Spain), and a five-ride indoor/outdoor Custom Complex at Splash & Spa Tamaro (Switzerland). Check our World Map for rides opening near you!
