Leading waterpark experts WhiteWater West has announced its acquisition of Hopkins Rides (formerly O.D. Hopkins).
Despite the new ownership, the Hopkins Rides name will remain, along with its reputation for manufacturing legendary amusement park attractions such as the Log Flume Ride, Super Flume, Shoot the Chute, River Raft Ride, as well as other water transportation systems.
Teri Ruffley, Managing Director of WhiteWater's amusement ride section explains "having Hopkins Rides on board advances our mission to bring to market the most exciting and diverse aquatic amusement park attractions portfolio in the world. We are positioned for and looking forward to a strong year ahead in this segment of the industry."
Hopkins Rides Director of Sales Jim Glover explais "we're ecstatic to be part of WhiteWater. "We also believe Hopkins' rides will offer high capacity additions to world-class waterparks."
WhiteWater President and Chief Executive Geoff Chutter adds "our vision is to bring in originals like Hopkins Rides to reinforce what WhiteWater does best - top-notch attractions.
"And stay tuned... because we have many more originals coming down the line."
Hopkins Rides began in 1979 and has continued to deliver highly popular water-based rides for the amusement park sector. Hopkins Rides is based out of Palm City, Florida and joins WhiteWater as its 19th global office.
