A record season for Skara and their ProSlide TornadoWAVE

Record for Skara Sommarland and Cobra, the new attraction this year.

Skara Sommarland has had a scorching hot month of July. During the third week in July, the amusement park had more visitors than ever. – When the weather is good, people want to go bathing, says Hans Ericsson, CEO for Skara Sommarland.

Skara Sommarland´s season is short – this year from June 6 to August 17. This means the water park is extremely weather sensitive. Therefore, there is extra reason to celebrate this summer. In July, there have been many nice sunny days – and the third week, Skara Sommarland beat the record with 60,000 guests during one single week. – It has been really fun. There are two major factors that we had such good numbers in July, and the first is of course the weather. When the weather is good, people simply want to go bathing. The second reason is our new attraction Cobra [a ProSlide TornadoWAVE™], which has been enormously well received, says Hans Ericsson.

During last year, Skara Sommarland beat the record for a whole summer with over 300,000 visitors. After a pretty tough month in June, there is now hope to achieve something similar this season, says Hans Ericsson.
