Part water slide, part Ferris wheel, 100% fun—SlideWheel® is the world’s first and only rotating water slide. What you need to know…
A first-of-its-kind slide, SlideWheel naturally has a first of-its-kind ride experience.
Every 30 seconds, rafts are launched into the perpetually spinning SlideWheel where they plunge and oscillate along the moving flume before being churned out into a final serpentine that descends them 11.5 meters (38 feet) into a pool entry. Riders are rewarded with a 90-second spectacle of physical and visual wonders inside the spinning wheel.
A familiar sight in amusement parks, the captivating display of moving attractions has never been seen before in water parks.
The guest interest, word of mouth, and social media buzz that SlideWheel creates is immeasurable. SlideWheel’s impressive 22-meter (72-feet) height when combined with its fiberglass and light effects create an incomparable spectacle, visible, both day and night, from any vantage point. This is the type of attraction that people travel to see.
SlideWheel’s launch conveyor with integrated dispatch control and video surveillance system streamline operations.
The three-conveyor system ensures that the slide’s 16 rafts are in continuous operation from staging to launch and back up again—guaranteeing that three rafts safely navigate the wheel while one is riding the exit flume—maintaining a steady stream of 480 guests per hour.
It’s generally accepted that a new iconic attraction will help drive your park’s attendance and maybe even allow you to raise your gate.
SlideWheel’s unique physical presence makes for great passive capacity, helping to also boost ancillary revenue. Add to that the unmatched phenomenon of rushing through a rotating water slide and SlideWheel quickly becomes the most popular amusements attraction on everyone’s must do list.
