WhiteWater West launches Dueling AquaLoop waterslides

April 25, 2010
WhiteWater West Industries Ltd has announced the launch of its Dueling AquaLoops waterslides, expanding the AquaLoop family with a thrilling new design that doubles capacity and takes guest entertainment to a whole new level.
The Dueling AquaLoops are a unique configuration of WhiteWaterâs immensely popular AquaLoop looping waterslide, a winner in the IAAPA 2009 Best New Waterpark Product category. The Dueling AquaLoops put one rider against another in a head-to-head speed challenge, delivering heart-pounding excitement for riders and offering entertainment for spectators below. Starting from a single tower, riders stand inside the launch capsules and await the countdown. The floor then drops and riders plunge 17 metres down, accelerating to speeds of nearly 60 Km/h, hurtling up and over the near-vertical loop as more than 2.4 Gâs press their bodies against the flume before they splash into the runout.
The worldâs first Dueling AquaLoops (two of them, totaling four AquaLoops) are currently being installed at WetânâWild Water World on the Gold Coast
As Bob White, General Manager of WetânâWild Water World explains, âthe Dueling AquaLoops are one of the most exciting waterslide concepts to hit the market in a long time.
âSending guests on a head-to-head race through the trap doors, down the flumes and around the nearly vertical loops will be amazing. We loved the idea so much; weâre putting in four AquaLoops! The ride has already generated unprecedented interest from our guests, so we are looking forward to a great summer!�?
The AquaLoop is licensed by AquaRena.
