First Polin Twisted Racers in Europe Set for Spanish Waterpark

Istanbul, Turkey — Polin is proud to announce that its Twisted Racer Waterslide will debut in Aqualand Costa Adeje located in Costa Adeje, Tenerife, Spain. It is slated to be open to the public mid-August.

The Twisted Racer is the latest in many additions that Polin has provided to Aqualand waterparks in Europe these past few years. It was just last year that Aqualand Bassind’Arcachon and Aqualand St. Syr. Sur Mer decided to expand. In 2011, they chose Polin as their water slide supplier to create two unique rides for the parks. Now one year later, the owner of Aqualand Waterparks, Aspro Group – the largest operator of leisure parks and centers in Europe – decided on a wider expansion plan, this time covering six of their parks, 5 in France and this latest addition in Spain. The group retained Polin as their water park supplier.

Aqualand is the biggest waterpark chain in Europe with 20 waterparks in France, Portugal, Finland, Switzerland and Spain. Aqualand belongs to Aspro Group, the largest operator of leisure parks and centers in Europe. Aspro Group, founded in October 1991, currently operates a total of 41 parks and centers throughout Europe. Aqualand runs 9 parks in France. Over the years, Aqualand Waterparks have proved to be the leading waterpark chain in Europe by offering some of the newest and most exciting attractions available.

Costa Adeje is a newly renovated resort area in Tenerife, one of the Canary Islands, and part of the province of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain.Entertainment is not hard to find on the island, for families and children the options are endless.

Starting with enclosed twister slides and transforming into the high speed multiracer lanes, Twister Racer – a first in Europe – is the newest addition at the park. To engineer this ride, Polin combined its popular Twister slide with a head-first mat racer multi-lane slide. With this combo the rider can experience two rides at once! This high capacity, high speed mat racer ride allows four riders at a time to experience the thrill at Costa Adeje. Configuration allows 2-4-6-8-10 lanes as well.

Twister Racer is built using Polin’s closed molded RTM (resin Transfer Molding) technology which makes the slide perfectly shiny on both sides and the Twister Racer also features Polin’s patented Natural Lights Effects technology on all four slides. Pedro Cantero, Regional Manager, Canary Island said”We are excited to bring the Twister Racer to Aqualand Costa Adejethis summer and also for being the first waterpark in Europe to feature this slide.”

Aqualand Costa Adeje was founded in 1985 and is the only water park witha dolphinarium on the island of Tenerife. The dolphinarium has won The Best Show in the World award at IMATA (International Marine Animal Trainers’ Association). Aqualand Costa Adeje covers approximately 55,000 square meters which include eight rides for the adrenaline seekers, four rides for the Kidzworld, two family fun rides, and two rides for their “Chill out & Play” area. Bilge Pakis, Senior Architect, Polin says: “Polin is now proud to have its own Twister Racer as a ride for adrenaline seekers in Aqualand Costa Adeje. This is a high end design and engineering ride”. Pedro Cantero added: “We are delighted to work with Polin on this latest project. We are sure that our riders will be just as excited as we are to experience the Twister Racer and make it one of the most popular rides in our park this summer.”
