[quote]When you’re building the world’s best waterpark, you need the best of the best” — Chris Warhurst, General Manager, Wet’n’Wild Sydney[/quote]

Ottawa, ON, Canada —  “ProSlide brought our vision to life with their innovation. They created complexes that are unique to us and that deliver huge capacities & impact,” says Chris Warhurst, General Manager, Wet’n’Wild Sydney.

By all measures, Village Roadshow Wet’n’Wild Sydney’s first season was a resounding success. Annual passes sold-out in the opening week and the park easily surpassed their attendance targets. ProSlide is proud to have contributed to their success.

Topping the park’s popularity chart are two massive ProSlide custom complexes with six blockbuster rides & a world-class KIDZ Zone. Together they can entertain over 9,000 guests an hour.
