Tour: 7 October @ 2:00pm - Whitewater West Industries Ltd.
About the Company
"WhiteWater brings the fun as The ORIGINAL Waterpark & Attractions Company in two splashy ways; the first is just that – being first. In 1980, WhiteWater dove in feet-first; growing from a successful waterpark operation into a thriving designer and manufacturer of waterpark attractions, we’ve been making waves ever since.
WhiteWater Attractions is an evolution of WhiteWater’s two dry attractions companies: Hopkins Rides, which includes the Super Flume and Water Transportation Systems and Prime Interactives (Formerly Prime Play) featuring No Boundaries™ and Adventure Trail. These two product categories make it possible for WhiteWater Attractions to create customized, unique and successful guest experiences for the entire amusement industry.
WhiteWater Attractions offers a complete range of innovative products including harnessed play, interactive play structures and water rides. With master planning, custom design, manufacturing and theming services, WhiteWater Attractions creates complete amusement experiences for the whole family, from concept to completion."
