The first monster-sized triple funnel waterslide in Victoria, and only one of two in Australia, is to be installed in the popular family waterpark, Adventure Park Geelong.
Known as The Tsunami, the $4millon slide will stand at a lofty 7.5 storeys high and will take thrill-seekers down a 172-metre length. Up to four guests can occupy each raft, which race down three funnels of thrilling water rapids.
The Tsunami is the creation of Proslide, a world leading designer and manufacturer of water rides and waterpark resorts.
The installation of The Tsunami is part of the second stage of Adventure Park Geelong’s $8 million expansion.
Leanne Salmon, Adventure Park Geelong’s managing director, said The Tsunami will confirm the park as the ultimate go-to waterpark destination for families in Victoria this summer. “The new Tsunami ride provides visitors from near and afar the opportunity to experience a world class adrenaline-charged, monster-sized water ride that is the first of its kind in Victoria,” said Salmon.
“What’s better than one funnel? Three high energy funnels in one lightning fast ride. It’s been custom-designed for us by Proslide, the world’s leading waterslide designers and is a very exciting addition to our existing portfolio of waterslides, action rides and all-day family attractions that keep guests coming back for more,” Salmon added.
The family thrill slide is set to open in November 2019 when the when park reopens for the summer.
