Robb Alvey Theme Park Review
I have just one word for ProSlide® rides - awesome!
ProSlide® SURF™ is the world-class surf simulator that offers massive entertainment for your guests, whether they ride it or just watch! Designed for optimal performance and efficiency, this skill-based attraction is a pure revenue generator, keeping riders coming back for more, and keeping spectators glued to their seats (next to your F&B).
The ProSlide® SURF™ – based on technology from Pacific Surf Design® – is the premium surf simulator. Besides delivering a truly exhilarating ride, every element of the attraction has been designed for optimal performance and efficiency.
More riding area, less water. The unique shape of our tank offers one of the largest riding surfaces with the lowest volume of water: up to 25% less than comparable simulators. Guests get the best surfing experience and you save money on filtration, water treatment, electricity, construction costs and more.
Most advanced riding surface. The padded riding surface uses the newest foam technology. It provides a consistent riding surface with no ‘dead’ zones so guests can do the same maneuver anywhere on the riding surface. Not only does this maximize enjoyment, it also provides the predictability necessary for the safest ride.
The padding system is designed to be 100% waterproof, minimizing bacteria and fungus growth and increasing the overall life of the surface. And unlike older tension fabric systems – with two steel rollers under the riding surface – our molded foam surface eliminates issues with guests falling on these potentially dangerous areas of the ride.
Designed for softer landings. Not only is our foam surface safety-rated for head impacts, but the extra padding means more forgiving falls. Angled side bumper walls help keep guests more securely on the ride. And the extended rear recovery area minimizes collisions with the back wall.
Smart design throughout. Every element of ProSlide® SURF™ is optimized for operational efficiency, safety and enjoyment. Just two examples:
- The pumps were created for minimal maintenance. The food-grade oil only needs changing every three years (vs annually) and can be done without moving the pumps! When it does come to moving the pumps, that can be done with a standard forklift (vs a crane for older style wave machines).
- The inflatable lane divider is fixed at both ends and contoured to fit the riding surface precisely: avoiding the safety issues that can occur with other types of dividers.
