Leading creator of waterslides and waterparks, Polin Waterparks, has provided a host of iconic slides for the new 47-acre aqua park at Park of Poland.
Waterworld is phase one of Poland’s largest amusement park. Construction commenced in January although no official opening date has been released.
The vast glass-domed facility will include three zones: a giant swimming pool, a geothermal spa and the splash and slide zone featuring over a dozen Polin slides.
The roof can slide open or remain closed to make the most of the setting whatever the weather.
Polin has custom-themed and configured every slide to reflect the palm-tree filled, tropical environment.
The $190 million Park of Poland has ambitions to be second only to Disneyland in terms of scale and scope.
It is being developed by Global City Holdings (Rotterdam, Holland) in cooperation with strategic partner Wund Unternehmensgruppe (Friedrichshafen, Germany). Wund Unternehmensgruppe currently operates four large water parks in Germany, the best known being Therme Erding, which boasts Europe’s largest indoor swimming pool with a removable roof.
Park of Poland is expected to kick-start a new industry in Poland and employ 1,100 staff. It is slated to be completed within the next six years. Located around 37 miles from Warsaw, attendance is predicted to hit 1 million in its first year.
Among the many Polin slides at Waterworld will be:
- Windigo. A race slide featuring enclosed tubes that spread out to create geometrical curves that curl parallel with one another and end in multiracer lanes.
- The Multisurf. Guests compete head to head in this mat-racing slide.
- Looping Rocket. A unique “launch capsule” 73 feet in the air sends riders hurtling through a high-speed, horizontal, 360-degree loop.
- The Space Hole. One of the largest speed slides features an enclosed tube with a huge, open bowl where centrifugal force whirls guests toward a breathtaking exit.
