WhiteWater Attractions’ new super Flume doubles ride capacity at Korea’s largest theme park

WhiteWater Attractions’ new super Flume doubles ride capacity at Korea’s largest theme park
February 24, 2016

WhiteWater Attractions has created a world-class water attraction for Korea’s largest theme park, Everland Theme Park in Yongin.

The new Super Flume ride, known as Thunder Falls, replaces the attraction’s 30 year old Flume Ride, enabling park guests to experience a longer ride with more of their friends while the park enjoys higher throughput. Thunder Falls has substantially boosted Everland’s ride capacity with the introduction of eight person boats replacing the four person boats used in the park’s previous flume ride with the a new average throughput of 1,400 riders per hour.

The element of the surprise has been integrated into features seen throughout Everland’s new Super Flume. The new features, such as 180 degree turn tables and backwards drops, enhance the guest experience and provide benefits to the park operator. The stacked turntables allow the boat to pivot in place instead of requiring extra flume to turn the boat around and send it down the big drop. The design is more efficient as it takes up less space while creating just as much thrill, if not more, as the motion of rotation creates anticipation for the riders.

Thunder Falls is WhiteWater Attractions’ largest ride ever built in terms of the number of unique features integrated into the ride experience.

As WhiteWater Flume Ride Specialist Miller explains, “we’ve packed a huge number of fun features into the 485 metre long ride.

“The full one-eighty direction changes combined with varying degrees of drops, from 5 metres up to a whopping 20 metres, creates an experience that is full of surprises.

“This Super Flume will have guests lining up again and again.”

The addition of a water ride in a traditional theme park gives guests a place to escape the sweltering heat of the Korean summer. Flume rides such as Thunder Falls have been a traditional staple in theme parks for years, providing ride diversity and the quintessential splash every park needs. Although traditional, the Super Flume from WhiteWater Attractions has taken the guest experience up a notch.

Everland has been entertaining guests since it opened in 1976 and today ranks 16th in the world for theme park attendance, entertaining over 7 million guests annually.
