Slideboarding


New from WhiteWater, this exciting concept integrates gaming, skill, and competitive sports into an attraction that redefines the waterslide experience. It features a board embedded with game controller which, together with a smart gaming system knows who you are and tracks your progress/score over your run down the slide, and multiple runs thereafter. Adding to the competitive element, scores are posted on an onsite scoreboard as well as in a dedicated app and website. The experience begins as riders/players take to their Slideboard and get into riding position and familiarise themselves with the game controller. They then launch into an atmospheric light show with sensor-activated targets challenging theme at every turn. By tapping the right buttons on the controller and using their skill and agility then can hit targets as they slip down the slide at rapid speed. The game system adapts and modifies as riders/players improve their performance, creating more challenging experiences for the more skilled gamer to conquer.


Slideboarding can be retrofitted onto – and a bring a new lease of life to – existing tube and open waterslides with a minimum diameter of 54” (1.37m) or incorporated into new attractions. It is supplied with a choice of either one or two-person boards. After a trial of the system at Cultus Lake Waterpark in British Columbia, Canada, the first official Slideboarding installation will be made at Wet ’n’ Wild Las Vegas for the 2015 season. Get a sneak preview by visiting as part of the World Waterpark Association party on Wednesday 29 October, while the WWA Show is in town.
