OctopusRACER water ride

Ride experience

High above the pool, mat-riding competitors launch themselves headfirst into side-by-side tunnels to race to the bottom. Each rider speeds through a tight 360º loop complete with intense Gs.

The loop accelerates riders onto the open racing lanes that alternate drops with bumps, creating speed, compression and zero-gravity moments.

Low lane separators let riders see their race position and egg each other on to the finish! Red and green start lights and an exit timing system can intensify the action.

The sheer joy of competition keeps riders coming back again and again.

Exclusive technology

Every element of these classic water rides has been designed to optimize operations and safety:

  • Each curve, dip and bump is perfectly engineered to deliver smooth transitions and keep riders anchored in the flume for a thrilling and safe ride.
  • Seamless transitions from closed to open flumes create a smooth ride.
  • Non-skid run-outs ensure riders exit safely.
  • Splashguards on outside lanes reduce water loss.
  • With the deepest design expertise and widest variety of fiberglass molds, ProSlide ensures rides fit perfectly in the available space.

Classic water ride

ProSlide’s headfirst mat racing rides are the most popular in the world.

Evolved from the IAAPA Best New Waterpark Ride award-winning ProRACER, the OctopusRACER was the first enclosed looping racer on the market. Many riders slide at once, creating high capacities that grow as you add lanes.

The loops can be configured to suit your site – all on one side or mirrored. This racer has long-lasting appeal for riders of all ages.
