ProSlide Technology Inc., an industry leader in water ride manufacturing and design, has been granted several patents for its award-winning FlyingSAUCER water ride.

ProSlide Technology Inc. is pleased to announce that on 7 July 2020, the US Patent and Trademark Office granted a second US Utility Patent for its FlyingSAUCER water ride, which already holds 17 patents in eight countries across the globe.

This innovative ride includes a high-speed feature that changes how to turn within a water ride. FlyingSAUCER is already being enjoyed by water park guests around the world, with installations at SeaWorld, Six Flags, OCT, Siam Park and Holiday World. The ride can also be found at Splashway Water Park in Sheridan, Texas, where it won the 2019 IAAPA IMPACT Award.
