Ride experience

When it comes to ride design, ProSlide knows that one-size-fits-all just doesn’t cut it. Each customer has unique space and site challenges. That’s why we customize every one of our TORNADO 18 rides to maximize topography, deliver the desired thrill-level and reduce costs.

Exclusive technology

Our downhill skiing heritage gives ProSlide a tremendous edge with this ride. And it drives a fundamental design difference: the ProSlide compound curve. Creating our turns with curves of varying radiuses enables a faster, smoother, tighter ride and stronger G-forces.

Anchor ride

TORNADOs are big in both visual impact and legendary rides.

Funnel rides just plain look great, and when you combine multiple funnels into a ride, you provide inspiration for park guests. You also get excitement and variety for riders, because the slightly smaller funnel size makes everything happen a little bit faster.
