Polin, one of the world leaders in the design, production, and installation of waterparks, waterslides and water play attractions, has installed some its signature water rides, including the first "Magicone" in Europe, at Aquacolors Waterpark, Croatia.
Opened to the public on May 16th 2015, the €25million, 51, 000 sq m Aquacolors Waterpark is located on a 10 ha site, 2 km south of Poreč, and is one of the most modern aquaparks in Europe.
Polin has supplied the waterpark with the first ever Magicone waterslide in Europe. The Magicone is a high-capacity waterslide, shaped like a gigantic funnel on its side. The ride begins with a steep incline, then whirls around the interior of the cone undergoing surprising changes in momentum created from the ride's unique parabolic shape, before ending in an adrenaline-pumping trip in either a pool or, in the case of Aquacolours, a dry-out section.
While its slide path is unique, Polin’s resin transfer molding (RTM) composites technology used in the manufacturing of the Magicone (and most of the company’s slides) creates a very special finish. With two perfectly shiny sides, Magic Shine, Polin’s slides have an ultra-attractive appearance plus the benefits of two patented options: Natural Light Effects technology and Special Pattern Effects technology, as well as translucent color choices. An added benefit to the process on top of the appearance is stronger, lighter-weight slide components that result, offering easier installation due to their uniform thickness and smooth edges.
In addition to Magicone, Polin has installed even more of its signature waterslides at Aquacolors:
- A Family Rafting Slide
- A Black Hole/Flying Boats Combination
- A Multi Slide
- A Freefall Waterslide
- A Body Slide Two Spheres
- A Navigatour
- A Racer Twin Hybrid
- Two Looping Rockets
Kids also have their own special area complete with one of Polin’s innovative Aquatower Type 550s – a new-generation water-play structure featuring slides, tipping buckets and water cannons – as well as a Turtle Slide and a Mushroom Fountain.
