Welcome to Polin Waterparks News! We so appreciate your interest in our latest projects, and we hope this newsletter gets you as excited as we are about what's been happening lately. We've got details on our new app, waterparks in Russia, Poland, France and India (and a cruise ship!), another prestigious award, exclusive certification we've earned, recent microsites we've launched and free passes to next month's show in Singapore! Let's get started!
First? We are thrilled that our mobile app is now available! Our adrenaline-filled virtual-reality Experience is waiting for you in the App Store or Google Play Store. The app lets you take a test ''ride'' on our award-winning Space Race and Storm Racer waterslides. We'll be uploading additional videos soon, along with some other surprises. So check out the app often, and don't forget to grab your complimentary Google cardboards at upcoming shows where we'll exhibiting.
Second, we're pleased to share news of our latest project in Russia - the largest indoor waterpark in the Volga Region! Reviews of this incredible facility, the Ulyanovsk Indoor Waterpark, describe it as "excellent," "awesome" and "cool."
Third, we are happy to announce that we are proud suppliers of Waterworld, an amazing glass-enclosed indoor aqua park that is the first phase of what will be Park of Poland, the country's largest amusement park. Opening in April 2018, the facility will eventually become the largest amusement park in all of Central and Eastern Europe - second only to Disneyland Paris in size and scope.
Fourth, we are honored to share news of our latest awards! After winning IAAPA's Brass Ring last fall, our Space Race waterslide was named among the 25 Most Valuable Products for 2016 by Aquatics International magazine. This is the second year in a row for our company to be named among the winners. (Last year, our Super Combo ride got the honors!)
Next up? We continue to prove our leadership as a key partner to the world's top cruise lines with our latest endeavor: the Pacific Dawn cruise ship, owned by P&O Cruises Australia. New Polin waterslides have truly enhanced the façade of this popular ship, designed by award-winning architect Renzo Piano.
We're also proud to be recognized as one of the few research and development (R&D) centers in Turkey. Our company was the first firm to receive certification as an official R&D center by the Turkish Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology in the its sector.
Other big news includes the debut of waterparks in France and India! The O'Gliss Waterpark in Le Bernard, which opened last June, is the first French facility to feature our Looping Rocket waterslide. The €12 million (US$13.5 million) facility features an impressive 12 waterslides. And the Amaazia Waterpark in Surat, India, features our King Cobra waterslide, a new jewel for this port city known for its diamond industry.
