ProSlide WAVES and RIVERS

Powered by WaveTek™

The best rides

WAVES: Give your guests a day at the beach or a break from the adrenalin-pumping high-thrill rides with a ProSlide WAVES wave pool, powered by WaveTek™. With more options for on-demand and pre-programmable wave pattern sequences than any other system on the market, you can give your guests the ultimate wave pool experience that will keep them coming back for more.

LazyRIVER: The perfect way to unwind after a long day at the park, ProSlide LazyRIVERs offer a serene drift through gentle currents. Lounging on floating rafts, guests can enjoy unique and scenic theming and a moment of calm away from the hustle, bustle and noise of the thrill rides. Often close to park amenities, the LazyRIVER is both relaxing and convenient.

ActionRIVER: Lazy River too lazy for you? Pump up the current and set your property apart with an exciting ActionRIVER. When you turn floating into fun adventure with this unique combination of creative design and strategic wave machine placement your guests will be riding the river for hours on end!

The best experience

  • Recreational waves range from two-foot spaced rollers to merging rollers and diamond waves. A perfect setting for extras such as Cabana rentals and F&B options.
  • Extreme play adventure waves take things up a notch with patterned wave formations set for maximum thrills. Set special extreme play times to attract teens and young adults or run randomly throughout the day to address multiple guest preferences.
  • High performance waves are perfect for body boarding, turning your average wave pool into a one-of-a-kind ride with a 500 rider/hour capacity and 10sec wave intervals for non-stop action.

The best science

WaveTek™ is the industry’s proven top performer, powering 90% of the wave systems in North America, and our precise engineering ensures ideal laminar flow through the wave-generating caissons, eliminating turbulence and ensuring crisp, defined waves. From small swells to big rollers, our wave generation systems are designed to make a splash and deliver exactly the type of application you need – whether for fun or function.

Why ProSlide?

Greatest power efficiency

For pneumatic wave generation, blowers are generally set to run cyclically throughout the day (e.g., 10 minutes on, 10 minutes off). That means they are powered off and on 3 times per hour, every day, all season. We don’t do that, we move to a low-power idle during “off” times, eliminating the need for the on/off cycle. There are two negative consequences to the on/off cycle used by our competitors when compared to our low-power idle solution:

  1. Each time a blower is turned on there is a power surge spike, which slowly settles back into normal consumption once the spike subsides. Over the course of hours, days, and weeks those surges account for significant cost that simply doesn’t happen with our solution.
  2. The on/off cycle is also hard on the blowers themselves, causing increased maintenance and shorter equipment life. With low-power idle your blowers last longer and require less maintenance.
Unparalleled innovation

Our wave partner ADG has been innovating their products and solutions for fifty years, never satisfied with the status quo and always looking for new and unique ways to improve their products, improve their expertise and knowledge and improve their customer’s experience. They have been first to market with every major innovation in the wave generation industry for decades – from variable patterns to collision avoidance to surfing and more – and have no intention of stopping now. After all, the other guys need someone to copy. Or try to copy.

Most efficient waves

Our wave partner ADG invented the modern method of wave dispersal with unique patterns and equipment that ensure maximum coverage and maximum enjoyment. Many wave generation products offer limited or imprecise patterning and wave dispersal, which limits the usable (enjoyable) area in your wave pool (and reduces your potential capacity and turnover…and money). ADG offers more wave patterns than any other system on the market, and more importantly more efficient patterns than any other system on the market with no dead spots or unusable areas. You can ensure that every corner of your wave pool will be filled with bouncing, happy guests.

Highest up-time

A wave pool without waves is just a pool. Our high up-time/low down-time features ensure that your guests are never left flat:

  1. Redundancy features mean that your system can tolerate the outright failure of many of its components and continue seamless operations
  2. Processing cutover means that if your main PLC (computer) goes down and stops producing wave patterns your entire system immediately switches to the smaller backup module, which continues to produce diamond waves until the main comes back online
  3. Rugged construction means that our materials and components have been field-hardened through decades of real-world testing and experience, and will continue performing perfectly under extreme conditions
Laminar flow

A wave pool without waves is just a pool. Our high up-time/low down-time features ensure that your guests are never left flat:

Sometimes it’s the little things that make all the difference. It’s easy to make water flow; it’s a lot harder to make it flow smoothly and precisely, when, where, and how you want. And that smoothness and precision is the key to creating well-defined, consistent and predictable wave patterns…or just turbulence. Our precise engineering ensures ideal “laminar (or streamline) flow” by creating precisely engineered paths for water that eliminate cross-currents, eddies, and swirls. That reduces (or eliminates) turbulence, enables the waves to hold their definition more crisply and for longer periods, and gives you ultimate control over your guest’s experience.

High-end applications

You don’t need 10-foot waves suitable for movie special effects or a wild rough-water pool built for military and search-and-rescue training. But it’s very reassuring to know that the same expertise, knowledge and experience that has created Academy Award winning effects for movies such as Life of Pi, The Guardian and Master and Commander, and that is sought after by coast guards and militaries across the globe, is designing and building your wave pool.

Unequalled experience

Our wave partner ADG has been designing and installing wave pools for more than 50 years. There is nobody else in the world that has their experience, or knows the best practices they’ve developed over the decades and countless hours of designing, building and installing wave pools around the world. They are the industry leader, have worked closely with standards bodies to set and maintain the highest quality standards in the industry, and have developed efficiencies and cost-effective methodologies that accelerate installations, ease operations and dramatically reduce maintenance and upkeep. The proof is on (and in) the ground: they have installed more than 90% of all wave systems in North America, and have installed more than 400 installations worldwide. Hilton. Waldorf. Westin. Six Flags. UCLA. Hyatt. Kalahari. Wet ‘n Wild. The list goes on. And on.
