As a former national ski team racer, ProSlide®
CEO Rick Hunter’s goal has always been to
mirror ski racing’s smooth turns, steep grades
and big drops in our water rides. When he
founded ProSlide in 1986, Rick partnered
with Hans Tanzer, one of the largest sailboat
manufacturers in Canada. This powerful
partnership introduced the highest-quality
fibreglass to the waterpark industry. To this
day, ProSlide rides are known for their superior
ride performance and premium quality.
Main products and services
We design and manufacture water ride
attractions. This focus lets us concentrate
all of our considerable expertise on building
the best water rides in the world. ProSlide®
has pioneered almost every major water ride
innovation. We’re the only company in the
world to win the industry’s highest honour
– the IAAPA Impact Award, more than once.
We’ve won it three times. In fact, we’ve won
more Best Water Ride awards than all other
waterslide manufacturers combined.
Great waterparks tell a compelling story, every
element runs at high efficiency and capacity.
Our knowledge of best practices leads to smart
design: stairways and queuing areas that eliminate bottlenecks, ride layouts that reduce
the number of attendants, and efficient raft
return and storage. Our planning team includes
veteran architects and designers from both the
amusement and waterpark industries. And for
the rest, our rich ecosystem of expert partners
can provide engineering, operations management,
construction specifications and more.

• Custom design. We customise every ride to

• Constant innovation. Our iconic inventions
have led the evolution of the water ride industry.

ProSlide® rides power the best, most
successful and most recognised parks in the
world. A “best park” is one that captures a
dream, seizes on an aspiration and delivers
big on expectations. We’re the trusted partner
of Disney, Universal, Wet’n Wild, Siam Park,
Six Flags, new Atlantis resorts and many more.
Plans for 2018
The fundamental element in our ride technology combines arcs with different
radius’ for a faster, tighter line and stronger
G-forces. These arcs allow us to mix and
match features on a single path and easily
transform features from a two-person tubing
ride into a six-person raft ride. Much like our
iconic TORNADO® funnels – available in 18,
24, 45 and 60-foot diameters – the same
flexibility can be applied to many of our ride
categories. Our product road-map is looking
three years ahead – 2018 will feature the
introduction of many higher capacity features
with insurmountable ride performance.
2018 trade shows
In the next year, ProSlide will be exhibiting at: all
three IAAPA shows -- IAE in Orlando, AAE in Hong
Kong and EAS in Amsterdam. As well as IAAPA’s
LATAM and EMEA conferences. Other industry
events include WWA, DEAL, FunAsia, RAAPA, CAE,
IAAPI tradeshows and more.
