CannonBOWL 40 water ride

Ride experience

In this bowl water slide, 2-rider tubes hurtle down a steep in-run, then shoot into the wide-open bowl, high on the wall for peak thrills. Tubes speed around the perimeter of the bowl, the engineered shape creating the smoothest, safest rotations.

The smaller radius and long arching descent of the CannonBOWL produce the highest speeds and strongest centrifugal forces of the ProSlide bowl family.

As tubes slow, they move to the center for a quick and exciting exit. Water jets send tubes effortlessly into the patented CorkScrew™ exit and down a tunnel to the next thrill.

Exclusive technology

Entry speed and bowl shape create an electrifying bowl ride in perfect safety while delivering high capacities.

In other manufacturer’s bowls, an easy exit is far from guaranteed. ProSlide’s patented CorkScrew™ exit, with precisely-positioned jets, is designed to move vehicles out of the bowl without fail.

It works so well that some of our customers dispatch a second tube before the first exits, driving capacities even higher.

Iconic water ride

Anchoring your park, big iconic water slide features like award-winning ProSlide bowls get your guests talking, riding and returning! Our bowls are not only the best in the world, they are also the most popular.

ProSlide’s CannonBOWL 40 was the world’s first tubing bowl. And is still the hottest-selling bowl ride by far.

The 40-foot (12 m) bowl has the same thrilling ride as the IAAPA Industry Impact Award-winning BehemothBOWL but in a smaller footprint.  It’s ideal for a ProSlide custom complex, with multiple rides on one tower.
