Statement from Rick Hunter, President & CEO, ProSlide Technology Inc.®

July 17, 2018

We at ProSlide® are deeply saddened to share that on July 16th, management at Beach Park, a popular Brazilian water park and resort, informed us that a male guest was fatally injured while riding their Vainkara water ride. This TornadoWAVE®-branded water ride was manufactured by our company and recently opened after testing and commissioning. On behalf of our entire team, our hearts go out to the family and friends of the gentleman who has passed away.

We are in the process of getting all the details and will continue to work closely with the Beach Park team and local authorities on a full investigation.

Above all else, safety is paramount at ProSlide Technology Inc.® and is the foundation for everything we design and build.  Since 2011, 45 TornadoWAVE® water rides have been in use, with more than 53 million riders enjoying them internationally. ProSlide® has been in business since 1986, and this is the only guest fatality associated with the thousands of our ride installations worldwide.

As more information becomes available, we will update our statement where possible.
