Located on the slopes of Mount Palbongsan, Ocean World is part of the Vivaldi Park ski resort in South Korea. The Eygptian-themed waterpark recently completed a 50,000 square metre expansion project when it opened a package of new attractions from WhiteWater West.
Riders on Family Boomerango shoot up a wall, pause and then fall back into the sensation of weightlessness as they transition over a hump and into a splashdown pool below. Up to six riders at a time can enjoy the award-winning attraction at a time sat inside large circular rafts.
The Master Blaster water coaster, meanwhile, is a gravity defying ride with drops and curves to thrill riders of all ages. Completing the package of new additions is a giant multi-level AquaPlay RainFortress featuring numerous interactive water features, highlighted by two six-ton tipping buckets.
This is the third expansion for Ocean World since Vivaldi contracted WhiteWater to install a family raft ride and some speed slides in 2005. One year later, the waterpark followed that up with an Extreme River and indoor AquaPlay AP1050 structure, and in 2007 with the design and equipment of a fully themed Surf Wave Pool and outdoor AquaPlay AP200.
