Global waterparks company, Polin, has designed and installed a collection of iconic combo slides at a brand new waterpark in Johor, Malaysia.
Polin's adrenaline-pumping Black Hole & Turbolance Fusion Waterslide is one of the signature rides at the 20-acre, tropical-themed Austin Heights which opened in January 2016.
Other highlights include Polin's Multi Surf, Flying Boats and Uphill Flying Boats, Racer Twin Space Boat, and Black Hole and Flying Boats Combination – plus an Aquatower in the kids' Paradise Island section.
"We felt confident from the beginning that partnering with Polin was the right choice, ” commented Founder and Managing Director Dato' Ir Steve Chong Yoon On. Their experience proved to be extremely valuable in all areas of the project's ultimate success."
Malaysia saw a 12%+ growth in visitor numbers in the first half of 2015. Johor has been identified as a key tourist destination with further developments already in the pipeline.
“We're already planning more exciting facilities to complement our existing ones, " confirms Dato' Ir Steve Chong Yoon On. "The new additions include an enrichment park, a 300-room hotel, a village mall and an international convention and banquet hall."
These latest enhancements are scheduled for completion by the end of 2016 and have a gross development value of about RM140 million (US$34 million).
Austin Heights is predicted to attract in the region of 300, 000 guests in its first year.
