For the seventh year in a row, Polin Waterparks’ signature King Cobra waterslide has been honoured in the European Star Awards – where the Turkish manufacturer’s projects picked up no fewer than nine awards!
And in the ceremony presented by Kirmes & Park Revue magazine on September 23 in Amsterdam (ahead of Euro Attractions Show), the attraction earned First Place for Best Waterslide in Europe, the fifth time it has picked up this particular award.
