Open and Closed Rides
Waterslides are the main attractions at a waterpark and they come in all shapes and sizes.
A range of flume systems developed over the past 30 years have supplied us with endless possibilities when designing a waterpark or leisure centre.
The following Open and Tube slides are the standard slides that can be ridden by the whole family and they are the main stay of the water park providing fun every 8-10 seconds per run. They come in open styles and tubes of different diameters. We can design them to do different things and we can put special effects in dark tubes called "Black Holes". Most parks have at least 4 of these slides usually at least 100 meters long starting from a tower of about 12 meters high.
Our range of open slides feature a unique in built 30 degree banking and have proved to be the safest of their type in the world. The banking causes the rider to be directed into the safest path of the ride and eliminates the need of added on pieces of fibreglass to retain both water and rider within the flume section.
Featuring three different diameter sections - 800 mm, 1200 mm and 1322 mm all with different radius curved sections, enabling each size to be utilised to give completely different types of ride designs within the water park. Variation of ride keeps patrons actively involved and offsets boredom due to repetition.
This ride incorporates either 4, 6 or 8 lanes. As the name implies riders race each other to the bottom of the slide on specially designed mats. An execellent spectator ride as well as being able to accommodate a large number of patrons at one time.
Runouts and Starter Tubs
Runouts have improved the safety aspect of waterparks' landing or splash down area by eliminating the need for patrons to exit a landing pool. The runout is filled with water to a depth of only approx. 150 - 3OOmm which provides safe and easy exit for the smallest of riders. We have runouts to suit all types of flume rides.
Slide Entry and Starter Tubs
Our starter tub sections are designed to introduce the rider into the flume safely and efficiently with a minimum of water loss. We have various start tub sections to suit all of our flume designs.
Tyre and Raft Rides
Tyre rides generally are based on our large 1322mm dia section in (Raft Rides) either open with splash guards or full tube . Sometimes as a "Black Hole" (darkened) slide. For variety we can break the slide up by incorporating whirlpool tubs in the course of the ride. This method has proves very popular in many of our indoor waterparks in Europe. Alternatively the 1322mm tube section can run into a large 2.2 metre wide CTR (continuous tube ride) open section used for single or tandem inner tube rides.
Our whirlpool ride can also be incorporated into this flume which swirls the riders around into catchment tubs which are placed in appropriate positions along the length of the slide. The riders drop down the slide going from whirlpool to whirlpool until they reach the landing runout. All these features add unique variety to our tyre rides.
Our company can provide the latest computer controlled pneumatic wave systems as used in most major waterparks in the world. Different wave patterns are available from the standard diamond patterns to boogie waves and then up to a 2 metre high surfing waves.
White Knuckle Rides
This slide is a very fast speed slide in 800mm tube which essentially drops very rapidly in a 360 degree loop, terminating in a runout.
The very popular white knuckle ride, a double helix slide that braids two 800mm tubes together. The slide starts off quite slowly gaining momentum to the point of the riders feeling that they are totally out of control and weightless. Water sprays in face, difficulty in seeing and catching breath adds to the excitement. The ride concludes by patrons landing in the runout completely relieved and unhurt. This has proved to be the most popular speed ride to date, it also has a very low risk factor. A proven crowd pleaser as borne out by accompanying letter provided by the manager of Australia's largest waterpark Wet 'n' Wild on the Gold Coast.
Speed slides come in different varieties of open and tube sections. The original of which is the favourite "roller coaster" speed slide starting from a platform height some 18-25 meters high sloping down with speed humps all the way to the runout.
The fastest slide of all. As the name implies this slide drops dramatically with the rider plummeting to the runout. Very good visually to the park however due to the nature of the slide the risk factor is increased.
The toboggan slide is unique in its design and requires to be used with a special toboggan. The slide drops sharply to the large landing pool where the rider/s can steer their craft slightly by leaning. Up to two people can ride on the special toboggan raft. Usually two slides are put side by side in a typical installation.
