This month, Aquatics International revealed the 2015 Most Valuable Products, a compilation of the top products as chosen by reader response to out January New Products issue. Not surprisingly, a few standout waterpark items made the list.
Here, we highlight the five waterpark-related items to make the list.
1) Polin Waterarks
Polin Waterparks introduces the Super Combo, a water attraction consisting of four rides in one, including the Sphere, which rockets riders into a dark orbital-shaped slide that loops around several times before making a splash landing. Because of the Super Combo’s unique ride path, no ride is ever the same, making it exciting for guests to ride again and again.
