Istanbul, Turkey — Guests at the Crystal Aura Beach Resort & Spa in Kemer, Turkey, have always had lots of reasons to praise the park. Its all-inclusive, five-star offerings include delectable cuisine, luxury spa treatments and lavish accommodations. But now guests have a whole new reason to rave about the resort: a variety of world-class waterpark attractions that recently were installed Polin Waterparks.
Owned by the Kilit Group, the park’s owners worked with Polin – which had also designed and installed waterparks at sister properties Crystal Sunset and Crystal Waterworld – to identify the perfect attractions to feature at their resort. Guests already had access to Kemer Marina and Nomad Theme Park in the nearby seaside town located in the Antalya Province on the Turkish Riviera. Those temptations meant that Crystal Aura’s owners wanted aquatic offerings that would entice guests to stay on property for the duration of their visits. Thus, the owners chose some of Polin’s most appealing rides, focusing most particularly on wanting one of Polin’s wildly popular Sphere slides.
Polin’s Sphere waterslide is a streamlined version of its giant Magic Sphere. The two-person slide
begins with a steep drop, and the high-speed journey moves travelers in a dizzying ride around the interior of one sphere before taking them through a tunnel slide to the next sphere.
Main features of the slide include:
–A unique ride path
–Design attributes that can match any theme or color scheme
–Strong visual impact
–A fully enclosed version to create a completely dark attraction
–A partially open version that includes half-open spheres
–The option of a translucent version
–The choice between a conveyor or tower entry
–Both visual and auditory special effects options
–Double, triple and quadruple versions
–Either a pool or run-out exit
Like with most of Polin’s offerings, the Spheres are manufactured using resin transfer molding (RTM) composites technology. The Spheres’ attraction also features Polin’s patented Natural Light Effects (NLE) technology. This special lighting effect requires no electricity. Instead, harmonious, colorful designs occur when the sun’s rays shine through the slide’s fiberglass sides and interact with the flow of water through the tubes. The designs continually change and adapt depending on the angle and strength of the sunlight.
Crystal Aura also chose several other Polin attractions to feature in its new waterpark. These new offerings are:
–An Aquatube. Facilities looking for an exhilarating, rapid ride can rely on this slide, which features visual and auditory effects that will give guests a ride to remember.
–A Black Hole. This enclosed tube slide is Polin’s most popular ride. It offers an incredible and unique ride experience with a variety of special effects, including NLE, that no other manufacturer offers.
–A Big Hole. Take Polin’s Black Hole, add steroids and you have the Big Hole. Its substantial size allows families to ride together on its larger tubes.
–A Black Hole/Flying Boats Combination. Polin connects two of its popularthrill slides using splash boats and making it available in two different configurations. One is a downhill ride, and the other is uphill, where riders are pushed aloft on water jets, much like a rollercoaster. Guests experience a journey full of surprises, traveling up and down and – when they think the ride is nearly complete – are thrilled by a last-minute surprise drop.
The Kilit Group, owned by the Kilit family of nearby Antalya, originally made a name for itself back in 1955. That’s when founder Turan Kilit began supplying glassware to hotels and resorts. Today, the firm is managed by Turan’s three sons Suleyman, Tuncay and Taner.
Crystal Aura is located on a private section of Aura Beach, 48 km (30 miles) from the Antalya Airport and 38 km (23.5 miles) from Antalya’s city center. It features 416 air-conditioned rooms with fully stocked minibars, LCD televisions, private balconies and complimentary wireless Internet access. Spa offerings include massages, body treatments and facials. Guests can choose from four on-site restaurants or from the 24-hour room-service menu.
Erdogan Turan, General Manager , said the new waterslides at the resort provide a complete experience for guests. “Nearby attractions might tempt them to leave our property, but once they begin riding the slides, they can’t get enough,” he says. “They can spend all day at the resort and never tire of the offerings we provide to them.”
