Polin’s Looping Rocket Waterslide Makes a Splash at O’Gliss Waterpark, France

Leading waterslide and waterpark company, Polin Waterparks, has supplied a wide range of waterslide attractions to the recently opened O’Gliss Waterpark in France.

Among them is the country’s first Looping Rocket.

The company’s partnership with leisure park and outdoor recreation design firm, Edsun Loisirs, led to the development of the €12 million (US$13.5 million) facility.

Guests can experience 12 waterslides, including a number of Polin’s most popular attractions: the Kamikaze, Freefall, Turbo Lance and, of course, the Looping Rocket.

Occupying 60, 000 square metres, O’Gliss is the third largest waterpark in France.

Polin waterslides include:

  • Looping Rocket. Guests enter a “launch capsule” 73 feet in the air with a trap door that opens to send them through a high-speed, horizontal, 360-degree loop.
  • The Freefall. Adventure meets adrenaline in this exhilarating ride.
  • The Kamikaze. A high-speed free-fall thrill ride with a curvy path that begins 88 feet high.
