WhiteWater, The ORIGINAL Waterpark & Attractions Company, have supplied the attractions for the Paradise Island Waterpark.
Paradise Island Waterpark sits in the centre of Chengdu’s all-new, enormous 1.7 million square metre New Century Global Centre which opened on June 28 and was developed by China’s Exhibition and Travel Group. As the world’s largest building ever constructed, the freestanding building is large enough to hold 20 Sydney Opera Houses and, with about 5.5 million square feet of floor space, has three times the square footage of the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.
In addition to the waterpark, the structure will house not only offices and conference rooms but also southwest China’s biggest shopping and entertainment mall, two 1, 000-room five-star hotels, an ice-skating rink, and a 14-screen IMAX theatre.
Featuring a massive artificial beach and a giant LED screen reflecting spectacular, ever-changing ocean views, the waterpark offers an ORIGINAL array of innovative WhiteWater attractions designed for enjoyment by guests of all ages and abilities. Among WhiteWater attractions providing thrills, shrieks, and squeals are an elaborately themed AquaPlay™ structure offering splashy interactive fun for all, a towering, heart-pumping WhiteWater Abyss™, and a Family Raft Ride. Guests can also test their surfing skills on a FlowRider® Double and experience breathtaking drops, speed and splashes on a variety of Waterslides including an AquaLoop™ and a Whizzard™.
When approached to design and furnish the waterpark attractions for this world record breaking, 18 story glass and steel building, WhiteWater sought to deliver a complete waterpark experience – on a grand scale fitting this mega structure.
WhiteWater President & CEO, Geoff Chutter, said, “We are very honored and pleased to be part of this project, another world’s first for WhiteWater!”
