Awards & Patents
We don’t like to showcase a trophy case, but we’ve won countless industry awards:
IAAPA Brass Rings Awards for our products, two TEA THEA Awards, and our clients’ projects win recognition with Leading Edge and Golden Ticket awards. What we think is significant, however, are the TripAdvisor awards that our clients receive. This guest endorsement directly helps their bottom line and is why WhiteWater parks are consistently among the Aecom rankings for the most visited water parks in the world.
Recognized by Deloitte as one of Canada’s Best Managed companies, it is no surprise that our in-house R&D team have created many world’s firsts. We’re always looking at ways we can bring innovation to improve parks. Thinking out of the box and creating products like Vantage is how we stay ahead and help shape trends in our field. We protect the innovation and intellectual property behind our products, owning dozens of patents for slide design, technology, water play structures, surf designs, and water rides.

Canada Best Managed Companies
Canada’s Best Managed Companies is Canada’s leading business awards program, recognizing excellence in private Canadian-owned companies. WhiteWater has been one of these prestegious companies since 2012.
We protect the innovation and intellectual property behind our products, owning dozens of patents for slide design, technology, water play structures, surf designs, and water rides. Whenever we patent a product, we always include the name of the WhiteWater employees (inventors) whose ideas and hard work enabled its creation in the first place. We believe in showing our appreciation to the dedicated people whose talent help make this company successful.
WhiteWater owns dozens of utility patents, for water slides, stationary sheet waves, inflatable ride surfaces, interactive play centres, and lots more. These patents help protect the our constant innovation to create slides and rides that are safer, consume less water and energy, and help operators manage parks more efficiently.
WhiteWater holds various design patents for elements such as: looping rides, spherical rides, bowls, and more. Our design patents help ensure that products that we create are always one-of-a-kind and easily recognizable.
"Everything went well during construction and we received a quality product, delivered on time, and within budget, and the new ride has been wonderful for business. Ok, maybe there were a few glitches, but they were small and always quickly taken care of by WhiteWater, without any hesitation. If we build any more slides, it is WhiteWater West for us."Walter Schumacher
Chief Executive Office, Water Zoo
" WhiteWater was chosen because it is one of the few suppliers able to offer so much variety of product and to achieve, with the design of the slides, the degree of emotion and adrenaline that we want our visitors to experience."Diego Garcia
General Manager of Parque Warner Madrid
"We’ve worked with WhiteWater since the 90’s and they were again selected as our preferred supplier for all our waterslides"Magendaran Marimuthu
