WhiteWater Fuses Family Boomerango and Manta Waterslides at Nagashima Resort

Tim Mow joins WhiteWater Southeast Asia as rapid growth continues

WhiteWater delivers another ORIGINAL innovation by pairing the world’s two most thrilling waterslides at Nagashima Resort in Kuwana City, Japan.  This industry first is a fusion of the award-winning Family Boomerango™ and the all new Manta™ into one titan of a waterpark ride – times two!!

Not just a powerhouse in ride experience, the mirror image Family Boomerango™ + Mantas™ that originate from the same tower set themselves apart by being among the most visually spectacular waterslides ever.  The unprecedented views at multiple platforms in the queue line will build anticipation and transform standing in line into an entertaining adventure.
Already being hailed as the best waterpark ride on the planet, this iconic giant has to be first seen then experienced to be believed; taking guests to the edge and keeping them there for what seems like an exhilarating eternity.  The journey begins with the classic sensation of rafting, leading into a screaming, velocity-building drop that launches riders up the famous Boomerango wall, making them feel like they are “going vertical” then weightless all the while getting a bird’s eye view of what is coming next.  They fall back and barely have time to catch their breath while racing warp speed across a flat section propelling them right into the rushing waters of the Manta where maximum oscillations and a plunge to the finish will leave them breathless and eager to ride again and again.
President and CEO, Geoff Chutter explains the value of this relationship, “WhiteWater is honored to have been chosen again by Nagashima Resort.  The execution of this project from concept to completion could never have been accomplished in such record time without the strong rapport that we have built during our continued partnership and numerous installations over the years.”
About WhiteWater

WhiteWater brings the fun as The ORIGINAL Waterpark & Attractions Company in two splashy ways; the first is just that – being first. In 1980, WhiteWater dove in feet-first; growing from a successful waterpark operation into a thriving designer and manufacturer of waterpark attractions, we've been making waves ever since.

But ORIGINAL is also about being seriously fun and innovative! It's about thinking outside-the-pool; taking time to play, creating the newest, coolest attractions; not being afraid to be different and to take risks; and most of all, supplying the most memorable, WOW-that-made-my-day experiences in the world!
