ProSlide and Show Canada establish partnership after award-winning Svalgurok

ProSlide Technology Inc. and Show Canada Industries announced their new partnership after a recent collaboration on the award-winning custom RideHOUSE Svalgurok this past summer at Europa-Park’s Rulantica.

“ProSlide and Europa-Park partner on highly themed water play structure”

Combined with ProSlide’s water rides, Montreal-based Show Canada brings its creative expertise in experiential interfaces, theming in motion and interactivity for a unique product offering. This collaboration brings together two of Canada’s leaders in the attractions industry.

“We couldn’t be more excited to continue our incredible work with the phenomenal team of designers, artists, sculptors, engineers, blacksmiths and other specialized craftspeople at Show Canada,” says ProSlide President and Chief Operating Officer Dave Rozon. “The results of this partnership will create some of the most incredibly imaginative and innovative water ride attractions the world has ever seen and we can’t wait for guests to experience them.”

ProSlide and Show Canada Industries’ previous work on Svalgurok was a collaboration with the Mack family at Europa-Park. The one-of-a-kind structure included gargantuan sea creatures seamlessly integrated into Rulantica’s mythologically inspired theming. Additionally, Svalgurok also featured an interactive, robotic element that enabled the head on Svalgur (the structure’s giant sea serpent) to move and spray up to 200 gallons of water per minute, with the ability to be controlled by the guests below. That aquatic play structure has gone on to win multiple industry awards including, most recently, the World Waterpark Association’s Leading Edge Award.

“After the incredible success of Svalgurok at Rulantica, we’re eager to continue our relationship and bring Show Canada’s creativity to even more of ProSlide’s amazing clients around the world”, says Jean Labadie, Show Canada’s President and CEO. Show Canada has established itself in its field through projects at the Sochi and Rio Olympic games, collaborations with Cirque du Soleil, and installations at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas and Comerica Park in Detroit.
