SplashTacular Launches Double Bowlseye™

January 5, 2012 No Comments

SplashTacular, winner of the 2011 Industry Innovation Award for Suppliers from the World Waterpark Association (WWA), recently announced the launch of their new family raft ride, the patent-pending Double BowlsEye™.
The Double BowlsEye is a contemporary take on a high-speed family raft chase.  Riders gaze down the 60-foot launch platform to see two 54-inch enclosed slides, which enter opposite sides of an enormous bowl. The family of four is separated into two double rafts, positioned back-to-back on custom-controlled launch platforms.  Once the ride operator checks to insure that all four guests are properly seated, they are simultaneously propelled in opposite directions and disappear into darkness at raft speeds of up to 30 mph.  Riders then empty out into the massive bowl and “chase” the other family members to the finish.
“This is the perfect family ride,” said Steve Levine, founder and president of SplashTacular. “It’s really the first time that the entire family can experience a competitive thrill ride together.  There is no other guest experience like it for waterpark destinations.”
SplashTacular’s design and engineering team has created two unique patent-pending features for the new family raft ride, including the use of two separate two-person rafts entering and riding the bowl at the same time, as well as both rafts terminating through dual exit systems. The ride is designed to terminate into either runouts or a splashdown pool.
The Double BowlsEye gives park owners exceptional throughput, handling up to 480 riders per hour.  Levine said that it’s part of the company’s strategy to increase park attendance and drive customer revenue through its one-of-a-kind signature attractions.
“Our objective was to create a unique family experience,” said Levine.  “This is a way for a park to distinguish itself, to become a destination of choice.”
