Polin Waterparks’ Super Combo Waterslide has been voted one of the year’s 25 Most Valuable Products by readers of Aquatics International magazine.
Each year, the popular monthly invites readers to vote for what they consider to be the industry’s best new products. This latest accolade for the Super Combo comes after Kirmes & Park Revue magazine gave it their "Best Waterslides in Europe" award during the Euro Attractions Show in Amsterdam last autumn.
Ali Cansun, Polin's R&D Manager, says, "Our designers are perfectionists when it comes to developing state-of-the-art slides that pump up your adrenaline while also being incredibly safe. Our clients are happy because their ongoing challenge is to find new ways to keep customers coming back, which is a real advantage of our hybrid/combination offerings. And, of course, guests are on cloud nine to discover new and even more thrilling rides."
The awards reflect a growing trend for fusion rides within the waterparks industry. The Super Combo, which debuted at Aquafantasy Waterpark in Izmir, Turkey, is a four-in-one combination that includes Polin’s Sphere. The Sphere rockets riders into a dark, orbital-shaped slide that loops around several times before riders make a splash landing. Polin claims that, owing to the unique ride path, no ride is ever the same which makes it exciting for guests to experience again and again.
Polin will have installed a further nine combo rides by the end of the year in Europe, India and China. They’re a ‘win-win-win’ for clients, developers and guests, says Cansun.
