Three ProSlide customers recognized with WWA awards.

Congratulations to Siam Park, Kalahari Resorts & Everland Caribbean Bay!

Delivering the most memorable guest experience is one of the top priorities for our customers. So it always gives us great pride when they are recognized for their efforts. This week, the World Waterpark Association (WWA) awarded three ProSlide customers with top honors. Congratulations to:

Siam Park: Leading Edge Award 

This TripAdvisor® #1 rated park is continually pushing the limits of innovation and this summer released another world’s first water coaster hybrid. Singha combines two new ProSlide exclusive technologies in a single ride, a Hybrid: FlyingSAUCER™/ RocketBLAST™. “Its constant acceleration, extreme curves and adrenaline-pumping drops will drive guests to our park for years,” says Christoph Kiessling, Siam Park Managing Director.
Other guest favorites at Siam include icons like Dragon (a ProSlide TORNADO® 60), Kinnaree(Hybrid: TORNADO® 24/ TornadoWAVE™), and Tower of Power  (ProSlide FreeFALL™) that drops through a shark tank.

Kalahari Resorts, Pocono Mountains: Leading Edge Award 
“ProSlide stands behind their work, unlike anyone else in the industry” says Todd Nelson, President, Kalahari Resorts. Which is why they’ve turned to ProSlide for both phases of their new property in the Pocono Mountains. Phase one opened this summer with 12 rides and the newest generationRideHOUSE® 600.
The four-flume ProSlide custom complex includes the world’s first indoor TornadoWAVE, a ProBOWL™, a Hybrid: TORNADO 24/ TORNADO 24/ TORNADO 24, and a TWISTER™ body slide.
Positioning the complex in a corner of the park will enable the park to easily accommodate their planned expansion in 2017: the wall will be removed and new rides will be added to the existing tower. The second phase of the park will include another 10+ attractions, making it the largest Kalahari water park.

Everland Caribbean Bay: Board Award
This world-class water park, Asia-Pacific’s third largest, attracted 1.5M visitors in 2014. This summer they turned to ProSlide for its highest capacity, anchor water attraction. The result: Mega Storm. It’s a 6-person Hybrid: HydroMAGNETIC® MAMMOTH®/ TORNADO 60, the 2013 winner of IAAPA’s Best New Water Park Ride.
The project was such a success that the park stayed open an extra month — with just Mega Storm and their lazy river operating – to help satisfy the demand!

And lastly, special congratulations to Andreas Tanzer, our Director of Research & Design, and the co-chair of the ASTM safety committee. His contributions were also recognized by the WWA with a second Kelly Ogle Memorial Safety Award. Andreas is a tireless advocate for water ride safety and a main architect of the ASTM standards for our industry. Congratulations!
