Polin helps waterpark chain stay no.1 in Spain Aqualand Maspalomas


ver at Aqualand Maspalomas in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, the park celebrated its last-but-one season with the installation of one of


the biggest waterslides in Europe – as pictured above and on this month’s Park World front cover. The high-capacity Racer Twin Turbolance, the first of its


kind in the world, comprises two tunnels side-by-side. Riders follow a circular path, racing each other along a series of twists and turns before reaching an enclosure that suddenly plummets them down a nearly vertical drop, where they reach speeds of up 52 km/h. The tubes then split and transition into separate Turbolance slides, propelling riders uphill, followed by a reverse path where they travel backwards over a hill, into a valley and ending in a dry- out.


Once again, Polin built the attraction with RTM and


The European waterpark chain Aqualand features slides and attractions from Polin at no fewer than 11 of its Spanish and French properties. As the Turkish manufacturer’s first King Cobra in Spain prepares to open at Aqualand El Arenal, Park World takes a look at two signature rides already thrilling Aqualand guests in the Canary Islands

Aqualand waterparks (the other five in France). The blue, white and green striped attraction, which riders experience head-first, combines four of Polin’s popular Twister slides with a multi-lane mat racer. Fancy one at your park? The combo slide is also available in 2, 6 8 and 10 lane configurations. As well as the “shiny on both sides” RTM (resin transfer moulding) finish that is common to all Polin’s slides, the attraction features the company’s patented Natural Lights Effects, adding a colourful surprise as guests race through the tube sections. Founded in 1985, Aqualand Costa Adeje is the only


A


waterpark on the island of Tenerife to feature a dolphinarium. Covering an area of approximately 55,000 square metres, it includes a total of 16 slides and attractions, including a dedicated Kidzworld and Chill out & Play area.


28 Twister Racer, Aqualand Costa Adeje


t Aqualand Costa Adeje in Tenerife, a Twisted Racer was part of a 2012 expansion programme that saw new Polin attractions added to six


Natural Light Effects (NLE). As water rushes through the ride, it interacts with sunlight that shines through translucent stripes at the top of the slide’s tunnels. These natural effects take different forms depending on the strength and angle of sunlight throughout the day to create a truly dynamic experience for guests. Options available for other customers include various theming options, a choice of open, closed or half-open tunnel sections, a tube conveyor, and either a pool or dry run-out finish.
