Dilovasi, Turkey – Enduring a Siberian winter means suffering through long months of temperatures that regularly plunge into negative numbers. In the town of Tyumen, Russia, for example, the average temperature in January is -16.7 degrees C (1.9 degrees F). Even during the summer, weather remains cool. The average temperature in July is only 18.6 degrees C (65.5 degrees F).
Residents of the Zarechny neighborhood, however, will gain some welcome relief to their frigid climate when a new indoor waterpark – the largest amusement and health complex of its kind – opens next April.
The burgeoning waterpark industry in Russia led Polin Waterparks (Turkey) to open an office in the country several years ago specifically to manage the development of these facilities and serve the waterpark industry in the region the best way possible. Now a leader in bringing waterpark attractions to the country, Polin’s previous installations include the Megacenter Gorizont Aquapark in Rostov-on-Don and Gorki Indoor Waterpark just outside Ryazan, H20 Waterpark and many more in different cities of the country.

Polin will be working with local investment group Sibentel on the facility.
While those elements might be incentive enough for many to visit the center, the true attraction will likely involve less restful – and more heart-pounding – experiences: a variety of Polin’s most popular waterslides.
Among the 10+ waterslides planned for the more than 10,000-square-meter (107,000-square-feet) facility, Polin Waterparks will be installing three of its most popular:
A separate children’s area will be available for the youngest guests, and several large pools will offer more relaxed recreation, including a wave pool.
Additional amenities at the facility will be a 170-room hotel and a complex of baths and saunas – about 15 different types, including Finnish, Scandinavian and Turkish options – that will take advantage of local mineral springs.
The facility will be able to accommodate 5,000 visitors a day and anticipates as many as a million a year. Its developer hopes the park will attract residents from nearby cities of Chelyabinsk, Omsk andYekaterinburg, as well from the Northern Okurgov.
Selim Doguoglu, head of the Russian office of Polin Waterparks, says Polin’s reputation in that country created the need for a local office so that he and his staff could more easily oversee operations there.
“Polin is a recognized leader for its innovative and smartly engineered aquatic attractions,” he says. “We’ve already built several of the most successful waterpark facilities in the country, and we expect this one in Tyumen will quickly match those.
“Being an all-season facility gives it an edge over other entertainment options,” he adds. “Families can enjoy it year-round. There are not a lot of entertainment offerings that accommodate the wide range of ages that families include, from toddlers to seniors. So we have high expectations for Tyumen’s long-term success.”
