Empex

Empex Watertoys will present creative water features that are interactive and educational at the same time, teaching kids about water flow, pressure, trajectory and more. Children using Empex products learn through pedalling, turning handwheels and cranking pumps and levers, creating different results and thus enriching the play process.Interactive waterplay – or having a user’s input create a variable output or response from a water feature – is of prime importance in splash parks.

WhiteWater West

The Blast Racer by WhiteWater West sends riders racing side-by-side uphill – and the idea was inspired by riding a Master Blaster with a foam mat facing head-first. The Blast Racer is compact, perfect to fill a narrow area of land and very visually appealing, adding a burst of colour in a two to eight-lane configuration, depending on the park’s capacity demands and the desired throughput. Riders challenge each other to see who is the fastest, providing a completely different experience with a competitive edge, which encourages repeat rides and longer days at the waterpark. The world’s first Blast Racer debuted at Yinji Xinmi Waterpark in China in June 2016.

OpenAire

Visit OpenAire’s booth at the WWA Show to find out about a range of installations, including WaTiki Waterpark and Kalahari Pocono Mountains. Thanks to an OpenAire double-sloped retractable roof, WaTiki Waterpark in Rapid City, South Dakota, has long been an all-seasons family destination that provides a natural atmosphere whatever the weather. WaTiki has since installed a retractable roof on its restaurant and another to create an additional seating area. Meanwhile, OpenAire created a system of skylights and enclosures for Kalahari Pocono Mountains, Pennsylvania, which is currently being expanded. The attraction is set to become the largest indoor waterpark under one roof in the US.

Proslide

ProSlide is presenting its latest installation, Spinning Out, a “tower of thrills” combining four of the company’s iconic slide experiences. The custom complex, which opened in July at Beech Bend Splash Lagoon in Bowling Green, Kentucky, is centred around a 17-metre (55-foot) tower and boasts a throughput of up to 1,620 riders per hour. The first is Cyclone Saucers, with three FlyingSAUCER features tilted on a 15 per cent gradient for a maximum dropping sensation. The other slides are Tidal Wave (ProSlide PIPElineWAVE), where riders surge up a wall and hang weightless before rocketing back down, Riptide (ProSlide TORNADO 24) which splits into two separate funnels, and Polynesian Plunge (CannonBOWL 40), which drops riders into a swirling bowl.

Polin

Visit Polin’s booth to find out about a number of new installations. Royal Caribbean has unveiled a thrilling waterpark aboard its Harmony of the Seas cruise liner, featuring three signature rides by Polin. Together creating the “perfect storm”, the three slides Cyclone, Typhoon and Supercell are based on Polin’s popular Aquatube and Space Hole designs. Cyclone and Typhoon form the ship’s signature attraction, The Ultimate Abyss. Riders travel through a network of enclosed tubes, alternating between transparent and dark sections, before dropping 30 metres (100 feet) and exiting to the deck. Supercell features a giant basin and open bowl design, where riders are swept up by the centrifugal force passing through the central hole and exiting below. Polin is also presenting the competitive Space Race experience installed at Oasis Waterpark in Izmir and the brand new Land of Legends Waterpark in Antalya – both in Turkey.
