TornadoWAVE 45 water ride

Ride experience

The high-speed in-run cranks riders in single or double tubes around back-to-back PIPEline curves and dips, revving up the suspense before dropping them through a steep chute and onto the WAVE!

Rafts sweep up and across the curved wall, climbing higher and hanging in zero gravity longer than any other wall on the market. Riders wonder if they’ll flip. The physics of our wall won’t let them…but they don’t need to know that!

From high up on the wall, the narrow out-run looks like the eye of a needle. Will the tube  make it through? Yes! Our ride path is designed to be predictable, even if rider weight varies. Tubes cruise flawlessly on to the next thrill.

More compact than the TornadoWAVE, the two-person ProSlide® TornadoWAVE45 wall ride promises the same incredible thrills.

Exclusive technology

ProSlide Technology® walls look slick and are complex, high-performance riding surfaces.

Based on ProSlide’s award-winning TORNADO ride technology, our walls use the physics of the patented true funnel shape to create the same high thrills in perfect safety.

A breakthrough innovation over the older wide, flat walls, ProSlide TornadoWAVE 45:

  • Sends tubes up the wall faster, higher, with longer hang-time
  • Delivers a consistent exit into flumes as narrow as 90 in (2.3 m)
  • Ensures maximum safety and high capacities
  • Is less expensive to produce

Iconic water ride

The buzz-worthy anchors of your park, iconic water rides are impressive to look at and a thrill to ride. With their high curved walls, ProSlide wave walls command attention in any park.

With 6 worldwide installations in its first two years, the  TornadoWAVE 45 tube ride was a success off the mark.

Its more compact footprint fits well in tight spaces and smaller budgets, while still delivering capacities of ~360 guests per hour. The perfect size to include in a multi-ride tower.
