New Waterslide from Polin: Surf Safari®!


Surf Safari® is a revolutionary, new, high-capacity waterslide from Polin. This exciting new attraction features a daring 40-degree sloped entrance and a unique, parabolic design, that creates an illusion that adds to the adrenalin filled experience. As a result, thrill-seekers young and old alike will experience in totally new riding experience never before seen in a family-styled waterslide.

Surf Safari®’s exhilarating trip results from its stream-lined, parabolic bowl-shaped design which speeds four-person rafts through twists and turns, as the unexpected changes in momentum that will send hearts pounding before riders splash into pool or run-out exits. The unique slide path gives riders a longer voyage compared to other slides with similar offerings.

Surf Safari® can be themed to match any park’s theme concept and is available with Polin’s exclusive Magic Shine finish through closed molded fiberglass production technology. Magic Shine gives slides a glossy smooth appearance that enhances their esthetic appeal for both riders and spectators alike.
