Proslide comments on successful Wet’n’Wild Sydney installations

Proslide comments on successful Wet’n’Wild Sydney installations
May 5, 2014

With Wet’n’Wild Sydney having now closed after its highly successful first season, waterslide supplier ProSlide has revealed the innovations that it introduced at the waterpark.

Having supplied 16 of Wet’n'Wild Sydney’s 23 water rides, the Canadian-based company has explained “by all measures, Village Roadshow Wet'n'Wild Sydney's first season was a resounding success.

“Annual passes sold-out in the opening week and the park easily surpassed their attendance targets.

“ProSlide is proud to have contributed to their success!”

ProSlide’s installations at the waterpark include:

The Bombora/T5/Tantrum – a complex is built around the world's ProSlide’s signature Tornado ride that includes:

• Bombora: ProSlide's TornadoWave™, a 12 metre wave-wall with the longest hang-times in the industry 

• Tantrum: A ProSlide hybrid ride with three Tornadoo 24's in one ride path 

• T5: Australia's only dark Tornado 60

Classic Combo - the second custom complex also delivers maximum family fun with:

• Double Bowls-eye: A ProSlide hybrid ride that combines two massive BehemothBowl™ 40s   

• Riptide: An enclosed Mammoth ride that opens up to an exciting TurboMammoth™ run-out    

• The Curler: Alternating enclosed and open Mammoth sections that push riders through 150 metres of high banking turns

Wet'n'Wild Junior

Another key addition to the park is the Wet'n'Wild Junior area with pint-sized versions of our iconic rides. The world's first Kidz Bowl™, the Kidz Tornado™ 24, Kidz ProRacer™, Kidz Pipeline™ and  Kidz Twister™ were instant hits with the younger crowd.

Commenting on Proslide’s contribution to the new attraction, Wet'n'Wild Sydney General Manager Chris Warhurst stated "ProSlide brought our vision to life with their innovation.

“They created complexes that are unique to us and that deliver huge capacities and impact."

ProSlide’s HydroMagnetic Tornado was named the Best New Water Ride award at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions’ 2013 awards.

The HydroMagnetic Tornado marries ProSlide’s HydroMagnetic Mammoth, LIM-powered water coaster with the zero g-force thrills of the world’s first six-person ProSlide Tornado.

The ride had debuted at Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi in early 2013 and was immediately among the waterpark’s most popular rides.
