Richmond, BC, Canada (August 1, 2013) — When Atlantis The Palm sought to revolutionize the waterpark landscape with the expansion of Aquaventure Waterpark, officials turned to WhiteWater for its innovations. WhiteWater responded with a six waterslide complex overflowing with features not seen anywhere else in the world.
Anchored by a magnificent 40 metre (131ft) tower, the complex will be unveiled in August 2013 and will include a number of world’s firsts including two AquaTubes which fly through the Anaconda, the world’s largest diameter waterslide at 9m (30ft). This flume-thru-flume technology offers a revolutionary waterslide within a waterslide experience, allowing Anaconda riders a spectacular view of the AquaTubes right above their heads. Additionally, the world’s first zipline integrated into a waterslide tower will deliver a new level of exhilaration as riders fly through on two-lane, two-way zip lines spanning three towers. Additional originals to the Middle East, a Family Boomerango and two Dueling AquaLoops will offer adventure seekers challenges and thrills as they test their courage.
“We are thrilled with the opportunity to work with Atlantis, The Palm, and proud to have created innovative attractions which offer thrilling and unique experiences to their guests,” commented Geoff Chutter, WhiteWater president & CEO. “We can’t wait to see the smiles all around, once the expansion opens”, he said.
This major expansion joins other WhiteWater attractions at Aquaventure Waterpark including four Master Blaster® water coasters, a custom themed AquaPlay interactive play structure, and the highly-popular Leap of Faith waterslide offering an unforgettable drop through a live shark marine exhibit.
