FacebookTwitterLinkedinGooglePrint
 

Polin is proud to announce the launch of a new waterslide series: "Magic Spheres". "Magic Spheres" waterslides with strong theme options and riding experience offer streamlining recreation. Below, you will be finding more information on "Magic Sphere" and "Spheres" rides.

Magic Sphere

Magic Sphere is a patent pending, exciting, unique waterslide. It is unique in terms of its geometry and riding path. Due to its spherical geometrical shape, it makes a perfect match with any theme applications and coloring. In terms of riding experience it offers a fuzzy path which makes the waterslide particularly special. The same rider might experience a new path each time s/he rides it. It is a high capacity ride with 4 people and can be expanded to 6 people. Polin's Natural Light Effects and Special Pattern Effects Technologies can be applied for any customization. Magic Sphere is being produced by Polin’s special Resin Transfer Molding Composites Production Technology so it proves itself to be a superior quality waterslide aesthetically and physically.

These features of the Magic Sphere waterslide make it one-of-a-kind waterslide in terms of concept, design, theme application, manufacturing and engineering.

Detailed Description of the Riding Experience

You start the journey with a 4 people raft. Passing through the tunnel part, you experience a big drop into the sphere. The riders drop down with an angle of 32 degrees and they reach a speed of 32 mph/hour. Inside the giant sphere, they follow a fuzzy path. Auditory, visual effects can be added to make it more exciting. Riders oscillate up and down and the raft following another tunnel slide comes to an end in a splash pool or a dry-out.

Spheres

Polin is proud to share another streamlined design waterslide: "Spheres". Unlike giant "Magic Sphere", "Spheres" consist of several smaller shape spheres and tunnel slide parts in between. Similar to "Magic Sphere", many theme applications and coloring go perfect due to the geometrical shape of the spheres.

In terms of riding experience, the main feature is the rider's going into the sphere with a drop and doing the fast forth and back movement inside the sphere and leaving the sphere again with a drop. It is a two person ride. Polin's Natural Light Effects and Special Pattern Effects Technologies can be applied. "Spheres" is being produced by Resin Transfer Molding Composites Production Technology so it proves itself to be a superior quality waterslide aesthetically and physically.

Detailed Description of the Riding Experience

You start the journey with a double tube. Passing through the tunnel part, you experience a big drop into the first sphere, you make the forth and back movement and continue the journey by leaving the sphere again with a big drop to the slide part. This path repeats in line with the design, depending whether it is a double, triple or quadruple sphere. The journey ends in a splash pool or a dry-out.

Product Features

  • Unique ride path
  • Perfect geometry to go with different theme application & coloring options.
  • Strong Visual Impact
  • Fully enclosed version for a completely dark attraction
  • Partly open version available. The sphere can be half open or partly open.
