ProSlide Makes a Splash in Manufacturing North America
Mike Fergusson, VP of Manufacturing Operations, talks passion, parks and ProSlide with Manufacturing North America magazine.
The global water ride industry is going through a dramatic transformation in 2017 with new and exciting product innovations, never-before-seen rides, and the introduction of industry-changing best new parks from the world’s biggest brands. 2017 is even seeing a whole new industry category: the Water Theme Park.
And it’s all powered by ProSlide®. Why?
Bigger capacity, bigger thrills!
Transformation is about increasing capacity, increasing efficiency, and increasing the fun and this year we’re transforming like never before. Our new 6-person rides offer huge capacity along with impressive scale, unbelievable excitement and unmatched reliability. They include the premiere of the massive FlyingSAUCER™ 60, our brand new Double TornadoWAVE™, the world’s first PowerRIVER™, and our thrilling new TORNADO® 32. This year we’ve also introduced the world’s first RocketBLAST™ Low-to-Grade (LTG), a ride that changes everything with never-before-seen technology in a water coaster.
Best parks, best brands
A “best park” is a park that’s well-planned, expertly manufactured, artfully built, and instantly recognized, standing apart from competitors in your market. It’s a park that thrills guests while performing with exceptional operational efficiency and effectiveness now and for decades into the future. Some of the “best parks” we’ve been privileged to continue working with this year – at least, the ones we can tell you about – include Kalahari Resorts & Conventions, Six Flags, Wet ‘n’ Wild, Atlantis, and Etnaland.
And a “best park” isn’t necessarily the biggest in the world or a park with the fastest rides. It’s a park that captures a dream, seizes on an aspiration and delivers big on expectations, wherever it’s located. We’re thrilled to be working with dreamers at all levels, including Splashway, Wild Adventures, Premier Parks and many, many others.
2017 is proving to be a very transformative year for the water ride industry, and ProSlide is proud to be driving that transformation.
