Sun International’s Sun City Resort has integrated two new waterslides harmoniously into the natural beauty of the South African landscape.
The leisure and gaming operator’s flagship Sun City Resort near Rustenberg led the way by installing one of the world’s first WhiteWater Surf Wave pools.
Now, almost 25 years later, the resort’s waterpark, Valley of Waves, has unveiled two new slides: a 18m-high Boomeragno and an AquaLoop, which descends from the same tower.
Commenting on the installations, Anton Steenkamp, development manager for Sun International, said: “As the leaders in the industry and suppliers to the original waterpark, we re-engaged with the WhiteWater team to re-establish the link and provide further exhilarating rides, increasing the product offering at the resort.
“The slides we selected certainly proved very attractive at the Wild Waters Waterpark at the Wild Coast Sun – another family destination resort by Sun International.”
The view as guest climb the high tower will showcase the beautiful park and lush forest that surrounds the resort.
The waterslide tower is unique in that it is themed to be camouflaged within the natural landscape using themed stone and rope to disguise the steel structure, WhiteWater said.
The colours of the waterslides aim to do the same, with the Boomerango a light brown and the AquaLoop a translucent ivory and opaque beige.
“The Boomerango slide has been extremely well received, with clients returning to experience the ride on a frequent basis,” Steenkamp said. “The introduction of the Aqualoop will provide that additional adventure that will have guests returning even more.”
