Beach Park launches colourful ProSlide complex


Beach Park, Brazil, has introduced Arrepius, a colourful new collection of water slides from ProSlide Technologies. And doesn’t it look great?


The installation features five different descents, hosting up to nine riders simultaneously – three on body slides and up to six on inline tube slides. Two of the three body slides are Super Loops, which begin with an 80° descent curving right, then left. The water slides feature a Skybox, the first of its kind in the country, where the ride operator presses a button to open the capsule floor, which starts the rider on their sharp decent. The remaining three slides provide the adventurous visitor with several different levels of excitement. There’s a high speed freefall slide 25m long (82ft), a Tantrum Alley inline tube ride featuring two funnels and a Cannon Bowl inline tube which changes between pitch-dark and light and feature a “bowl” in the middle of its course. “We have invested $95 million Brazilian reais (US$42 million) to create Arrepius, and we expect that this will result in a 20% visitor increase to Beach Park in the coming year,” reveals general manager Murilo Pascoal. Arrepius uses more than 108,000 gallons (409,000 litres) of water, with a central pool serving as the finish for the inline tube slides. A total of 10 ride operators and lifeguards maintain safety and security across the complex of slides. The surrounding area offers lounge chairs and wooden decks for visitor comfort, together with palm trees and ornamental plants for a lush and tropical atmosphere.Existing attractions at the park include Insano, which is documented as the world’s tallest water slide by Guinness World Records, as well as a beachfront restaurant and four hotels.
