The France / UK based water ride specialist Interlink has announced it is to supply a two lift Super Flume for an indoor leisure project in Bandung, Indonesia, for opening in 2011.
The custom-built attraction will feature double-seat, Zodiac-style boats specially designed at the client’s request and which will subsequently become available to others on future ride installations.
The Super Flume will feature two lifts and two chutes, one 3m high and the other 9m. The length of the ride will be approximately 277m, with the station section being 12m in length. Water speed will be 1.5m per second and a total of seven, six-seater boats will be utilised. The ride will be fully themed in an Aztec style, incorporating a large volcano feature, rock work and other related décor and surroundings.
“This will be a very special ride and will add further to our ever-growing portfolio of world class water ride installations, ” commented Interlink Managing Director John Hudd. “It will be the first time we have used these themed double seat boats on a flume ride, which will help provide a new type of experience, while the theming and décor throughout the ride will make it a truly stunning attraction.”
And he added: “We were particularly delighted to win this contract as it has given us the opportunity to do some innovative new elements on a flume ride attraction and I’m sure it will be a great success.”
