Polin’s King Cobra and Super Combo Scoop ‘Europe’s Best Waterslides’ Awards


Leading creator of waterparks and waterslides, Polin Waterparks, has netted multiple awards at this year’s Euro Attractions Show (EAS).

The King Cobra and Super Combo were both named at the European Star Awards in the ‘Europe's Best Waterslides’ category.

King Cobra is already a multi award-winner at this event, having scooped first place in the same category in 2012, 2013 and 2015.

This year, the parks recognised for their King Cobra rides were Aqualand Frejus, France (the first park in France to install the ride) and Crystal Waterworld, Turkey.

Additionally, Aqua Fantasy, Turkey, was awarded sixth place in the 'Europe's Best Waterslides' category for the 'Super Combo'.

"We're as proud today as the very first time we won a European Star Award, " commented  Sohret Pakis, Director of Marketing and Communication at Polin Waterparks.

"We take these awards very seriously, because they are official recognition of our dedication to delivering innovative, game-changing attractions.”

Winners of this annual competition, hosted by Kirmes & Park Revue magazine, are selected by an independent, international trade jury.

Polin puts the continued success of King Cobra down to a combination of its striking design, thrilling ride experience, the company’s unique resin transfer moulding (RTM) technology and special effects.

Four riders in two double tubes race along a circular path filled with twists and turns, catapulting them through open and closed tubes before they plunge nearly 25 feet (8 meters),   accelerating up to 32 mph (51 km/h).

“Our highest award is that our clients continue to choose us repeatedly, ” added Pakis.

“We will never stop innovating because people's interests will never stop evolving.”
