Polin Waterparks and Pool Systems, together with their representative in Canada and USA, Aquatics by Westwind, Inc., are pleased to announce the opening of several new waterslides in smaller, regional facilities in Canada. The Best Western Plus Camrose Resort Casino in Alberta, Canada and the Westmount Community Centre in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada both recently received new installations from Polin Waterslides and Pool Systems. Two other projects are nearing completion in Nova Scotia and Vernon, British Columbia and several new hotel projects are underway in Alberta with waterslides by Polin.

With more than 2000 waterpark projects located around the globe, North America is one of Polin’s growing markets. While some of that growth has been at larger destination waterparks like Six Flags Hurricane Harbor in New Jersey, and the upcoming Cowabunga Bay, Las Vegas, Polin also has had success in smaller, regional facilities, such as the new installations at the Best Western Plus Camrose Resort Casino and the Westmount Community Centre.
Bart Deeg of Aquatics by Westwind said: “As Polin’s representative in Canada and USA, we are quite pleased with the overall delivery from Polin and installation of our latest projects in Alberta and Ontario. The quality of the finished product speaks for itself. All our clients are impressed with the high gloss mirror finish on our fiberglass and the overall uniformity of the flanges and slide connections providing a smoother ride. With our totally redesigned Aqua Twist slide, we can provide a very compact footprint to fit almost any space.”
Best Western Plus Camrose Resort Casino
The Best Western Plus Camrose is a typical resort casino hotel. With the addition of the Polin Aquatube slide and the Mushroom attraction, the hotel’s pool has gained extra special appeal for the whole family!
The Aquatube is a 24 meter flame-red enclosed slide which offers speed and tight turns in complete darkness.
The Mushroom provides a canopy fountain in fun colors that children love to play under!
Both the Aquatube, and Mushroom round out the amenities offered at the hotel and are making an impact on the resort’s bottom line.
“Polin’s additions help make the hotel more enticing to families and encourage guests to spend more relaxing time at the hotel, taking advantage of other services on property such as retail and dining, ” according to Deeg who works extensively within the hotel / resort industry. “The investment in a waterslide and water play feature is a small price considering the overall costs of building the hotel, to potentially add upwards of 10 -20% in increased revenues”
Westmount Community Center
Located in Hamilton, Ontario, just Southwest of Toronto, the Westmount Community Center opened in January with a Polin Aquatube slide to complement its new aquatic facilities.
The 24 meter Aquatube slide is bright yellow and speeds guests into a warm pool, keeping recreational swimmers in a separate area from lap swimming (by contrast, the Aquatube at the Best Western Camrose includes an 8m run-out area). The simple, enclosed slide is quick and fast, and stands out against the crystal blue water.
