Two Innovative ProSlide Attractions Key Components of Aquatica San Antonio

Ottawa, ON, Canada — Sea World San Antonio has recently opened their new waterpark, Aquatica Texas which is home to two new feature attractions, Walhalla Wave, a ProSlide TornadoWAVE™ and Stingray Falls, a ProSlide MAMMOTH™ as well as a KIDZ slide area. These additions were not just a part of an expansion but an entirely new waterpark, transforming the existing Lost Lagoon into one of the nation’s premier water park destinations – Aquatica Texas. Sea World San Antonio approached ProSlide to design two world class water rides and create something their guests have never seen or ridden before. The end result was two Water Rides that are the first of their kind.

Another brand new water ride innovation from ProSlide brings the “best extreme gravity ride of 2012,” the TornadoWAVE™. Named the Walhalla Wave at Aquatica Texas, it is the first TonadoWAVE™ in North America and the first in the Western Hemisphere. This TornadoWAVE™ starts riders over 60ft high and is also the only one in the world to propel them through a full 720degree twist before they are dropped at a 45degree angle into the WAVE! Riders are propelled up the WAVE section of the ride for a sweeping moment of weightlessness. Utilizing the proven technology of the ProSlide TORNADO™, the TornadoWAVE™ is the next evolution of the only family of Water Rides that bring riders right up to the point of being vertical.

ProSlide’s MAMMOTH™, the industries original mega-tube water ride was transformed into Stingray Falls, the world’s only family water ride that rides through a giant Stingray tank. The 600ft long ProSlide MAMMOTH™ is the first of its kind in the world! Families start off over 50ft up in the 4 to 5-Man rafts and decent through a series of turns and drops where they end up riding underneath the world’s only ride-through Stingray tank! The entire family experiences an exhilarating ride followed by the sensation of floating on the bottom of the ocean with tons of stingrays swimming all around you – another World’s first from ProSlide!

The guest and park feedback on these two new rides have been outstanding and have proven to be the most popular attractions in Aquatica. Contact ProSlide today to find the perfect ride for your park.
