Polin Waterparks has products in 100 countries and has designed and installed major waterparks across the world to become a truly global enterprise


As it celebrates 40 years in the waterpark business, Polin Waterparks is working harder than ever before.

The company has hundreds of major and award-winning waterparks under its belt, including Europe’s largest outdoor waterpark, Europe’s largest indoor waterpark, the Middle East’s largest waterpark, and the largest waterparks in Iran, Russia, Turkey, Vietnam, Ukraine, Greece, Czech Republic, and many more.

“Polin Waterparks has designed and installed more than 2,500 waterparks in 100 countries,” says Sohret Pakis, director of marketing and communications, of the company’s continuing rise. “Some were immense projects with 50 waterslides and many kids’ play attractions; some were smaller parks with fewer attractions. Some were themed, some were not. Many were for parks with world-renowned reputations, and others were local venues. Some were indoor, and some were outdoor.

“We have worked with a wide variety of clients, installing our signature rides or creating specially designed rides based on that client’s needs and desires.”

Living legend
Polin Waterparks is known for its work on some of the waterpark industry’s most exciting projects and the brand new Legends of Aqua in Antalya, Turkey, is no exception. Polin Waterparks delivered a wide assortment of waterslides, in addition to a water playground, a spray zone, wave and river systems, a SurfStream, a Wave Ball and an entire hydromechanical system, including water circulation and filtration to the park.

The $1bn (£817m, €917m) facility opened its first phase in July. The family-friendly waterpark – with a Greco-Roman theme – is strategically located in a picturesque setting between the Taurus Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea. The 28-hectare (69-acre) waterpark boasts 72 waterslides, plus many additional aquatic attractions.

Polin Waterparks’ responsibilities included development and design, consulting, waterslides, rafts, tubes, FEC equipment, interactive play structures and other children’s equipment.

Asian market
“Cartoon Network AMAZONE was another game-changing project and Thailand’s very first internationally branded water theme park with themed waterslides,” says Pakis.

In that park, every waterslide is themed and each attraction reflects a character from the Cartoon Network animation series, such as Ben10, Johnny Bravo and Power Puff Girls. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg in Asia.

“Polin Waterparks has reached remarkably high export rates in the past three years,” Pakis says. “With the increase in spending power of Asia’s middle classes we have seen the increased potential of the waterpark market across the continent. The Asia market is growing exponentially.”

Company growth
Further to that, Polin Waterparks’ range of innovative signature rides, especially King Cobra, have helped create a 55 per cent increase in sales with company turnover almost doubling since 2012.

To support growth and ensure the highest quality, the company moved to a state-of-the-art facility in 2014. According to Polin Waterparks, it’s the world’s largest waterslide manufacturing plant.

“We also repositioned our brand,” Pakis says. “As it’s our 40th anniversary, we wanted to change our corporate image to better reflect our evolving business vision. We rebranded with a new logo and slogan that reflects both our heritage and the future vision. The logo represents a bird’s eye view of a spiralling waterslide created from the company’s initials. And our slogan, the Experience, refers to our 40 years of experience across the globe.”

Experience the Innovation

Polin Waterparks has developed a range of ride technologies to create the best possible experience for waterpark guests

• Technology-integrated waterslides: Slides that include automated systems, such as waterslide traffic control/signal light systems, sensor systems, timing systems, control units, and the integration of special effect and media-based attractions such as visual and auditory effects and augmented reality.

• RTM (Resin Transfer Molding):
Polin is the pioneer in the advancement and application of the RTM process in waterslide manufacturing. The method creates the best-looking slides with a smooth and shiny finish on both sides. RTM waterslide manufacturing technology is also less wasteful and quicker. It’s available in a range of patented translucent, natural light and special-patterned effects.

• Natural Light Effects:
Special pattern effects can be incorporated into almost all Polin’s projects. The new design options can be customised for each project. Choose from Graffiti, Mosaic, Triangulated, Wood ‘n’ Slide, Reflection, Honey Comb and Slide ‘n’ Roll.
