Splashtacular to introduce new waterslide products at IAAPA expo

LA QUINTA, Calif. – SplashTacular® Inc., the largest U.S.-based waterslide manufacturer, today announced plans to introduce its new SplashTacular Enhancements™ series at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) Expo. This innovative line of products will not only advance the visual appeal of waterslides for both riders and spectators, but they will significantly increase the ‘fun factor’ as riders will be able to race against themselves and others while competing for the highest score.

“For more than 16 years SplashTacular has manufactured waterslides and attractions that drive attendance and revenue to clients’ venues,” said Steve Levine, founder and president of SplashTacular. “We will continue to combine product innovation with fun and safe features to create waterslides and structures that fit every budget.”

SplashTacular will roll out the first three of its new SplashTacular Enhancements™ products at the IAAPA Expo. Attendees will have the opportunity to explore:

SplashChallenge™ - offers a series of features to enhance the waterslide experience by offering riders the opportunity to easily compete against themselves or other riders for the fastest ride time. In addition, SplashChallenge™ offers an option that allows riders to score points by locating and touching bright, colorful target sensors inside the slide while competing for the fastest time. Competitors and spectators view the top 10 results on a 24” color monitor after riders cross the finish line.

HydroLighting™ - debuts as components that will provide a thrill ride light show. Featuring multiple pre-programmed lighting effects within the waterslide, HydroLighting™ reinvents the body and raft slide experience into a complete entertaining ‘show’ for both the riders and the spectators with multi-sensory experiences including pulsing, gyrating lights and special effects. The system is user-friendly, affordable and designed to withstand harsh outdoor and indoor environments. 

HydroStyling™ - brings the opportunity to customize the appearance of waterslides by illuminating the inside with vibrant rings, shapes and icons in almost any shape or color of the rainbow. A nearly transparent colorless option is also available. Only HydroStyling™ offers the ability to blend multiple translucent colors into each individual segment of a waterslide. Whether through an undersea theme, convincing train tracks, playful creatures or even a park logo, HydroStyling™ immerses guests into the waterpark experience like never before with creatively themed options. In addition, the slide exteriors can be themed with a unique application of high quality, ornate images or graphically wrap an entire waterslide with patterns such as tree bark, camouflage or animal prints.

“Additional products will soon be added to the SplashTacular enhancement series,” said Levine. “Our focus is to redefine the waterslide experience by developing ideas that consistently attract customers to our clients’ attractions.” 

In addition to SplashTacular Enhancements™, the company will unveil details of two additional offerings on the show floor: Double BowlsEye™ and Aquatic Play Units.
