ProSlide Brings Innovation and the World’s Best Water Rides to IAAPA 2011 in Orlando


ProSlide’s presence was hard to miss at this year’s 2011 IAAPA Expo in Orlando, FL with the largest booth to date! ProSlide would like to sincerely thank all those that came by the booth to discuss their future Water Ride plans and see what innovations are lined up for 2012 and beyond. With more industry experts on hand than any other water ride manufacturer, ProSlide was the hot spot for Water Rides at IAAPA!

ProSlide introduced its new advanced meeting spaces with greater accessibility to information, more images and more videos all at the touch of a finger! We are continually looking for new ways to better inform our customers and these advanced meeting spaces were a huge hit. ProSlide was very pleased to have brought home an IAAPA Brass Ring Award for this integration of technology and booth design this year!

 Performance, design and creating the World’s Best Water Rides – These fundamentals have led to awards for IAAPA’s Best Waterpark Ride year after year. The 2011 IAAPA Expo was no exception. ProSlide took home an award for the Best Waterpark Ride of 2011 with the KrakenRACER™! This patented, braided, head-first mat racer is the latest evolution of the extensive ProSlide RACER™ line-up. Earlier this year the KrakenRACER™ also won the World Waterpark Association Industry Innovation Award, truly solidifying this RACER™ as the ride of 2011. The new year will unveil many more KrakenRACER™ installations at Waterparks all over the world.

Not only was the ProSlide booth buzzing with customers from all over the world, the Press was also very interested in what ProSlide had in store for 2012. Below are links to a couple of the interviews that took place, with more coming to your favourite publications in the upcoming weeks.

ProSlide would like to thank all of those who spoke to us about their upcoming Water Ride plans, with special thanks to those who committed to ProSlide Water Rides for 2012 and 2013. A particular highlight was with Skara SommarLand in Axvall, Sweden which is part of the Parks and Resorts Scandinavia Group. Skara Sommarland is putting in a ProSlide ProRACER™ in 2012, which will mark the first ProSlide Water Ride in Sweden!
