Number two and three
Next up is Kalahari Resorts Wisconsin Dells, which debuted their new ride, “The Smoke that Thunders,” on Memorial Day 2017. It’s an exciting and iconic ProSlide® BehemothBOWL™ 40/TornadoWAVE® 60 hybrid ride, with rafts that sweep up and across the curved wall, climbing higher and hanging in zero gravity longer than any other wall on the market.
And finally in 2017 (also right around Memorial Day) Kalahari showed off 5 new ProSlide® rides at Kalahari Resorts Sandusky. The new rides include another ProSlide® TornadoWAVE® 45, along with a massive ProSlide® FlyingSAUCER® 30 that moves at lightning speed, tubes banked high up on the wall, glued by centrifugal force, the steep angle of the saucers creating a ‘drop-and-dive’ sensation as riders race along its edge. Add a hybrid TORNADO® 24/TORNADO® 24 combo, a ProSlide® TWISTER™ and TurboTWISTER™, and you’ve got the perfect recipe for family fun and thrills.
Why did Kalahari choose ProSlide® rides? Of course it helps that ProSlide® makes the best water slides in the world for the best parks in the world, but really it comes down to relationships. According to Nelson, “We’ve had a good partnership for a lotta, lotta years. They’re exclusive in our Pennsylvania project, so every single ride out there is a ProSlide® product. We’re very pleased with them.”
But it’s not just relationships; this is business, after all. “ProSlide’s® impacted my bottom line a lot. You know, the indoor water park is the reason people come…and for us to have the latest, greatest, and the best things out there it’s crucial. Another thing I just love that ProSlide® does is that when you get a date from ProSlide®, you’re opening up. No matter what they have to do, we will open up.”
