Sunkid supplies boat conveyor belt and access systems

On time for the start of the summer holiday, the large slide facility planned by Watergames & More, with a slide tower and a Sunkid boat conveyor belt, came into operation in the ENNI outdoor bath, Moers, Germany. The facility installed by Sunkid not only contains the conveyor belt system for boats, but also can be controlled by the guests using turnstiles. The turnstile at the start of the raft slide is automatically released when the previous user has left the exit area at the bottom, through a subsequent turnstile. Additionally, Sunkid supplied the entire electrical control developed in-house, including: control cabinet, traffic light, cameras, and a screen for monitoring the activity.

The two raft slides lead from the slide tower to the area of the former jumping pool, covering a distance of 43 meters (141 feet) on their way down. The bold riders shoot down this slide in parallel on their rafts, covering an altitude difference of nearly seven meters (23 feet). Once they have reached the bottom, the boats are placed on a roller table and returned to the waiting queue on a Sunkid conveyor belt between the twin slides.
