ProSlide rolls into summer with 100+ installations

Another triple digit year for ProSlide.

More new installations than any other water ride manufacturer!

 

Waterparks around the world are unveiling 2014’s most innovative water rides, thanks to ProSlide Technology. Highlights include:

Hybrid rides
The ultimate water ride customization, ProSlide hybrids combine two, three or more stand-alone rides into a single experience.

We’ve installed 11 new hybrid rides this season, a testament to the demand for ever bigger, more impactful attractions. This year’s hybrids include many firsts!

  • World’s first BehemothBOWL™ 40 + TornadoWAVE™ at Six Flags Over Georgia. It delivers an exhilarating element of surprise as riders move from the consistent tempo of a smooth, serpentine in-run to the centrifugal thrills of the bowl feature before the steep drop into the massive 35 ft. TornadoWAVE wall with its heart-pounding, zero-gravity sensations.
  • World’s first TORNADO 24™ + TORNADO 60™ at La Viva Waterpark
  • North America’s first TORNADO 24 + TornadoWAVE at Water Country USA

Funnels
ProSlide funnels are still topping our installation lists. This year brings the largest demand we’ve seen in one season: nearly 25 TORNADO™ rides in 2014! The pioneer of truly iconic water rides, our TORNADO can be tailored to every footprint, budget and ride experience.

Tried and true, this patented shape creates the thrills that just can’t be duplicated. Just ask these operators, among the many who continue to buy multiple ProSlide TORNADOs: Center Parcs (opened in Woburn Forest, UK), Dreamworld Australia, Great Wolf Lodge (opened in Fitchburg, MA), Kentucky Kingdom, OCT (opening in Yunnan), Wet’n’Wild (opened in Las Vegas, NV).

Kids
ProSlide is the only ride manufacturer that creates a full line of kids rides. Rides that look and -more importantly – feel like our iconic attractions. With a full mix of funnel, bowl, serpentine and racer rides, kids can enjoy entire parks scaled to their size.

A great example: Village Roadshow’s Wet’n’Wild Sydney Junior area (including the world’s first KIDZ Bowl™). It opened to such positive reviews that an identical Junior area is already underway for their Gold Coast park this season!

Center Parcs Woburn Forest (UK), Club Hotel Bolero (Bulgaria), Crown Reef (SC, USA), and Lotte Gimhae (South Korea) are just a few other parks also adding new kids rides this season.

 

Other notable trends:
Custom Complexesmultiple rides from a single tower – are trending in resorts and indoor expansions this season. Of the 11 new ride complexes installing in 2014, Anapa Aqua Park, Center Parcs & Great Wolf Lodge are taking advantage of their highly customizable configurations and compact footprints for their indoor facilities.

Speed slides are a popular and cost-effective addition to any park. This year, we’ve installed 21 SuperLOOP™ speed slides with SkyBOX™ drop launch systems. The demand is easy to understand: it’s the highest-capacity looping speed slide on the market!
