Super Aqua Club installs Proslide RocketBlast & Saucer


Recommended Posts

The small park Super Aqua Club outside Montreal, Canada is installing a new ride for 2016.

 

It's a Proslide RocketBlast combined with the Flying Saucer turns. There's only one other ride like this and it turned out to be award-winningly awesome. I'm really excited to see another one of these built and can't wait for the final result.

 

There are no renderings or anything available, just a very limited number of construction photos:

If you don't know what type of ride this is take a look at this:

I'm sure it provides some neat "visuals" but why can't they just do a lower edged turn instead of all the extra un-used slide??

 

It could most likely be done in a more regular way, but on the other hand they got a patent on the saucer turns, so there have to be something unique about them.

 

I think the visual effect of the saucer is pretty awesome

 

Two new great photos of this beast to be!

I don't get the point of all the "extra" fiberglass in these turns:

I believe it was mentioned in the thread for the previous slide like this, or on Proslide's FB or something. But I think it had something to do with the way the water flows through the turn after the jets shooting water into it that is really improved? Too lazy to look it up lol

I am really surprised at how much these UFOs are leaning downwards. This one will probably be even more crazy than the one at Tenerife!

I wonder why they went with the "master blaster" style uphill sections instead of the LIMs like on wildabeast though?

It's not a blaster slide, it's a new tope of water driven coaster who is pretty much the water driven equivalent of the LIM driven ones.

While I may not get the strange turns, it sure does look amazing!! Love the colors they went with!! I wish more parks would install these!! They look like a lot of fun, and I am jealous of anyone who gets to ride this slide!!
