At this year’s EAS exhibition in Amsterdam, Wiegand Maelzer licensed WhiteWater to manufacture its innovative Slide Wheel.
The signing came as a result of WhiteWater leaders’ visit to Chimelong, a long-time WhiteWater client, the first park to install a Slide Wheel. The Slide Wheel is an iconic nest of intertwined slides that rotate on a wheel for the first time ever. This family raft ride provides strong G forces, pendulum movements, and backwards sliding.
“Bringing rides with iconic value to our clients is what WhiteWater is all about,” said Geoff Chutter, CEO of WhiteWater. “This is the most visually compelling ride in the water park industry today.”
“Our partnership with WhiteWater signals a broader collaboration on product innovations,” noted Rainer Maelzer, CEO of Wiegand Maelzer, “and this helps move our industry forward with the expertise and resources we both possess. Being an industry leader, WhiteWater is a valued partner for us to access markets around the globe.”
