Guests at Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi rate the Dawwama, the world’s first ProSlide HydroMAGNETIC TORNADO™, as their favourite water ride at the US$250 million waterpark.
The Dawwama is a six-person HydroMAGNETIC TORNADO™ – the first of its kind in the world. Riders are dropped into an 18 metre (60 foot) funnel experiencing zero gravitational forces as the rafts sweep up the TORNADO™ wall until they are perpendicular to the ground, after oscillating through the funnel, the rafts descend into the landing pool below.
Not far behind was the Falcon's Falaj, the newest ProSlide HydroMAGNETIC MAMMOTH™. Falcon’s Falaj is a six-person HydroMAGNETIC MAMMOTH™, the longest water coaster in the Middle East at 350 metres (1, 150 feet).
ProSlide HydroMAGNETICS create a truly exhilarating water coaster experience which is why the technology took home every major award in 2012, including IAAPA's Impact Award for the industry’s top attraction.
At Yas Waterworld the rides have real visual impact – the TORNADO's funnel is over six stories high and the flumes are 5-times larger than those on the body slides. In addition they deliver exceptional capacity with almost to 2, 000 riders an hour.
Mike Oswald, General Manager of Yas Waterworld, explains why ProSlide is their supplier of choice for showcase attractions: “We’re counting on these custom, one-of-a-kind rides to help us attract close to 700, 000 guests a year and be profitable in our first year.
"We turned to ProSlide for our two most spectacular water rides because we want to deliver out-of-this-world experiences that create lasting memories for our guests.”
