ProSlide Technology, designers of the world's most innovative water rides, has launched a new compact 2 person waterslide: PIPElineWAVE™.
Based on the award winning ProSlide TORNADO, the PIPElineWAVE™ is the world's only curved-wall ride, delivering a slower, straight up-and-back-down ride path, a constantly safe exit and less expensive production costs compared to flat walled rides.
The predictable ride path of ProSlides’ PIPElineWAVE™ gives a thrilling ride along the wall with the longest hang times and zero g-forces, in-runs and out-runs, banked curves, dips and turns.
And a predictable ride path results in a smaller footprint – no need for the wide walls of wall-style rides – which means that the PIPElineWAVE waterslide an ideal addition for a custom complex, where several rides are centralized on one tower to increase capacity. As well as fitting into smaller spaces, the PIPElineWAVE uses less fiberglass and steel than flat-wall rides.
Four installations have been launched in 2013:
- White Water Bay, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma (see header image)
- Holiday World, Santa Claus, Indiana (see video below)
- Six Flags Hurricane Harbor, Arlington, Texas (see orange slide above)
- Grand Sight, Lingshui, China (below)
Matt Eckert, president Holiday World & Splashin' Safari, said, "Our new Hyena Falls water slide complex brought us the increased capacity we needed for this season. ProSlide has another winner on their hands with the PIPElineWAVE feature. Of our four new water slides, the 'wave' ride was the one everyone wanted to try – and try again!"
