WhiteWater Crossbreeds a Boomerango with a Manta and Comes Up With an Iconic New Thrill Slide


Richmond, BC, Canada (July 18, 2013) — WhiteWater delivers another original innovation by pairing two of the world’s two most thrilling waterslides at Nagashima Resort in Kuwana City, Japan.  This industry first is a fusion of the award-winning Family Boomerango and the all new Manta into one titan of a waterpark ride. Not just a powerhouse in ride experience, the mirror image Family Boomerango + Mantas that originate from the same tower set themselves apart by being among the most visually spectacular waterslides ever.  The unprecedented views at multiple platforms in the queue line will build anticipation and transform standing in line into an entertaining adventure.


Already being hailed as the best waterpark ride on the planet, this iconic giant should be seen before being experienced; taking guests to the edge and keeping them there.  The journey begins with the classic sensation of rafting, leading into a screaming, velocity-building drop that launches riders up the famous Boomerango wall, making them feel like they are “going vertical” then weightless all the while getting a bird’s eye view of what is coming next.  They fall back while racing across a flat section propelling them right into the rushing waters of the Manta where maximum oscillations and a plunge to the finish will leave them breathless and eager to ride again and again.


President and CEO, Geoff Chutter explains the value of this relationship, “WhiteWater is honored to have been chosen again by Nagashima Resort.  The execution of this project from concept to completion could never have been accomplished in such record time without the strong rapport that we have built during our continued partnership and numerous installations over the years.”
