Siam Park opens Saifa dueling water coaster

Siam Park has launched its newest slide, Saifa. Meaning lightning in Thai, Saifa is a dueling 307 meter long water coaster.

As a double slide, Saifa allows for a duel descent n which the sliders compete against each other in a downhill chase. But that’s not all: saucers with fast, swooping open curves, add an extra dimension to the adventure. During the ride, participants can watch their opponents in the adjacent lane, which not only adds to the visual appeal, but also reinforces the competitive nature of the duel. Another highlight is the “head-to-head” section, in which the sliders race towards their competitors practically head-on.

The topographical design of the track is also innovative and unique. Saifa also goes upwards, with the help of powerful boosters, adding speed.  The result is an attraction that is longer than expected and full of surprises. Seen from below, the attraction is not visible in its entirety, and the real ride only becomes clear when visitors are onboard.

The attraction’s grand finale has participants shoot off towards the horizon at full speed before finally plunging into the pool.

Loro Parque, which owns Siam Park and designed the ride, has been able to take full advantage of the park’s geography, capitalizing on the rocky landscape of the island of Tenerife to achieve steep slopes on the ride.

“With Saifa we continue to strengthen our commitment to innovation and quality, creating an attraction that will offer an unparalleled experience to our visitors, and that will strengthen our position as the best theme park in the world,” said the vice president of the Loro Parque group, Christoph Kiessling.
