WhiteWater East Canadian company installs in China

This year, as it celebrates its 30th anniversary, Canada’s WhiteWater West has supplied no fewer than four waterparks in China.

Park World takes a closer look

ocated near Fushun/Shenyang in the north east of the country, Bali Waterpark is China’s largest indoor/outdoor waterpark to date. According to WhiteWater, which designed the park and supplied all of its attractions, it is also one of the most exotically-themed waterparks anywhere in the world, complete with a Balinese flavour and several industry firsts.

An additional attraction, opening later this year, will be the industry's first flume-through-flume Family Python, featuring an innertube slide passing through the structure’s giant 20-feet (6.1m) diameter MEGAtube slide. “The park is part of a huge new resort with hotels, golf courses and amusement parks in a beautiful, lush valley landscape,” explains WhiteWater president Geoff Chutter. “They will be drawing from a local area of about 20 million people, and are looking to be a bit of a destination resort as well. WhiteWater anticipates that the waterpark will see outstanding attendance numbers.” In Beijing, the company supplied a FlowRider and an AquaPlay AP 1050 multi-level interactive structure to the new Longmenzhen Waterpark.
