RocketBLAST® is a hydro coaster that uses water propulsion and turbine technology to provide speed going up and down.

RocketBLAST® is a more affordably priced take on the ProSlide HydroMAGNETIC ROCKET®, which debuted in a big-budget water park this year. The first was installed in Texas in 2017.

RocketBLAST® can be enhanced with tilted round FlyingSAUCER® elements inserted between water-slide water coaster flumes. The technology behind the strategically positioned circles allows guests to traverse turns at high speeds – up to 30 feet per second, he says. The saucers are available in a variety of sizes to match up with flumes for bodies and 2-, 4- and 6-passenger tubes.

Also in 2017, ProSlide introduced the Double TornadoWAVE™. While the original, a wall insert, has been on the market since 2011, the double wall option is new. “It creates a dedicated ride path for 4- and 6-person rafts into a near vertical-zero-gravity moment,” Maurek explains.
