Aqua Fantasy Waterpark Adds New Polin Waterslide

The new variegated blue slide sits between Polin’s two 2010 installations

New Slide is a Combination of a Rafting Slide and Uphill Flying Boats
Just last year Aqua Fantasy Waterpark (Izmir, Turkey), located in Selcuk ancient city, along the Aegean cost, celebrated its 10th year by adding two unique water rides designed, manufactured and installed by Polin. This included the L-RTM (Light-Resin Transfer Molding) manufactured “Family Rafting Slide” and “Wave Slide”. Now less than one year later, Aqua Fantasy decided to expand once more and kept Polin as the designer, manufacturer and installer of the new ride.

The new ride especially designed for the park is located between the two rides added last year. The new ride with dark blue-turquoise color combinations is a fast, surprising, double-tube slide with double uphill portions. The height of the slide is 14.68 meters (48 feet) and length is 131 meters (430 feet).

“The design of this third slide is a combination of our Rafting Slide and our Uphill Flying Boats. This ride is also very unique because it has 2 uphill portions. The great thing about this design is that it uses the same tower as the previous slides and it works without water jets. This lowers the operating costs for the waterpark.” says Zeynep Canbaz, Senior Architect, Polin.

Muharrem Atilla, Waterpark Manager at Aqua Fantasy adds, “The adrenaline is high, people are happy and the lines are very long. It is amazing to see that once the riders leave the slide their faces are glowing with joy!”
