ProSlide Technology Inc., an industry leader in water ride manufacturing and design, has debuted six new high-performance water ride complexes at Evergrande’s Ocean Flower Water Park. The company has collaborated with the Evergrande Group on the new park in China, which recently held a soft opening.
Ocean Flower Water Park boasts six new water ride complexes, housing 15 ProSlide water rides, including the world’s longest ProSlide RocketBLAST Water Coaster.
This is 359 metres long and is the first four-person RocketBLAST coaster in China. It has eight high-powered booster sections that use patented water jets, driving the inline boats higher, faster and longer than traditional ‘blaster’ coasters.
Industry-leading water rides
“We couldn’t be more excited to have partnered with the Evergrande Group on this monumental water park”, says ProSlide Vice President, Asia-Pacific Business Operations, Chuanchao Cheng. “The vision of leisure and entertainment on display at Evergrande Ocean Flower is inspiring. ProSlide’s water rides lead the global industry in innovation and technology, and we’re proud to be bringing them to Evergrande’s newest park.”
Another highlight is China’s first six-person TornadoWAVE which has an impressive curved wall, where guests experience zero-Gs as they are sent sweeping across the top.
ProSlide’s Chief Commercial Officer Ray Smegal says the team worked hard to complete the project, despite the challenges presented by the pandemic:
“Dealing with COVID guidelines, time differences, holidays and collaboration between ProSlide’s Shanghai team, Ottawa team, Evergrande’s engineering team and various suppliers presented some big challenges that required creative solutions. Our teams showed an unwavering level of diligence, commitment, passion and dedication to this incredible project, and our client’s vision.”
Last month, ProSlide celebrated the unveiling of a new Dueling PIPElineBLAST Water Coaster at Cafalandia in Bogota, Colombia. This 2019 IAAPA IMPACT Award-winning high-performance water ride is the first of its kind to debut in Latin America.
