ORLANDO, FL, Nov. 22, 2013 /CNW/ - Ottawa-based ProSlide Technology announced today that it has won 2013's Best New Water Ride. This award, recognized as one of the industry's highest honors, is presented by the International Association of Amusement Parks & Attractions (IAAPA). ProSlide is a 15-time IAAPA Best Water Ride winner as well as a 3-time recipient of IAAPA's Industry Impact Award, given to the top attraction in the entire industry.
ProSlide's winning ride - the HydroMAGNETIC (HM) TORNADO - revolutionizes two IAAPA Impact Award-winning technologies by combining them into a single ride path. It delivers an unparalleled ride experience by marrying the HydroMAGNETIC MAMMOTH, a LIM-powered water coaster with the zero g-force thrills of the world's first six-person ProSlide TORNADO.
The HM TORNADO debuted at the world's most expensive waterpark, Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi (US$250M) in early 2013 and was immediately voted best ride in the park by their guests. "We're very pleased that the industry has recognized what our customers have told us since we opened: that Dawwama, our ProSlide HM TORNADO, is the best water ride in the world", says Mike Oswald, General Manager, Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi.
"This award celebrates the innovation that helps our customers differentiate their waterparks and drive higher attendance." says Rick Hunter, ProSlide president & CEO. "And our hybrid rides, a category we invented in 2008, are unlike anything else in the industry with two, three or more rides combined into one path."
