OTTAWA, Feb. 8, 2013 /CNW/ - The two most iconic water rides at the newest waterpark to open in the UAE, Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi, are based on award-winning ride technology from ProSlide.
"We turned to ProSlide for our two most spectacular water rides because we want to deliver out-of-this-world experiences that create lasting memories for our guests", says Mike Oswald, General Manager, Yas Waterworld. "We're counting on these custom, one-of-a-kind rides to help us attract close to 700,000 guests a year and be profitable in our first year".
"What we care about most is helping our customers differentiate themselves in the market, which is why virtually every major waterpark in the world - Yas Waterworld included - trusts their anchor attractions to only ProSlide', says Rick Hunter, ProSlide president & CEO.
Yas Waterworld's Falcon's Falaj adventure ride is the longest water coaster in the Middle East at 350 meters (1,150 feet). It is a ProSlide HydroMAGNETIC (HM) MAMMOTHTM; a ride that marries the exhilaration of a roller coaster with the excitement of a water ride. This patented HM technology is only available from ProSlide and powers a longer, steeper, faster ride and a smooth water coaster experience. This game-changing water ride technology took home every major industry award in 2012, including IAAPA's Impact Award, given to the top innovation in the entire amusement park & attractions industry.
Dawwama's adrenaline rush is the ProSlide HydroMAGNETIC TORNADOTM, the first of its kind in the world! The HM TORNADO delivers an unparalleled ride experience by combining the fast, steep uphills and downhills of the HydroMAGNETIC MAMMOTH water coaster with the award-winning TORNADOTM . Riders are dropped at an extreme 100% grade into the 18-meter (60-foot) funnel. They experience the longest zero gravitational forces as the rafts sweep up the TORNADO wall until they are perpendicular to the ground, then across and along its equator line. After a series of exciting oscillations through the funnel, the rafts finally descend into the landing pool below.
Spread over 15 hectares (37 acres), Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi is the largest waterpark in the United Arab Emirate capital. The park's theme follows the adventures of a young Emirati girl in search of a legendary pearl that brought prosperity to her village.
