Aqua Blue, Africa’s biggest waterpark, opened its doors to the public on May 19, with all rides and equipment supplied by Guangzhou Haisan Entertainment Technology Company.

The waterpark, which is located in Egypt’s coastal tourism hotspot of Sharm El Sheikh, features more than 70,000sq.m of attractions and is capable of welcoming 20,000 guests per day.

Aqua Blue has installed numerous slides, rides and attractions from Haisan Entertainment, including Tornado, Constrictor and Magicloop, along with roller coasters and a large aqua house.

The Constrictor and Tornado slides share the same entry tower, which looms 18.5m above the waterpark.

Magicloop is a fully-enclosed slide made from transparent fibreglass, sending guests through a rapid descent before launching them into an inclined loop.

China-based Haisan Entertainment specialises in the planning, design, manufacturing and installation of attraction equipment, landscape gardening construction and waterpark services.

The company has a 60,000sq.m manufacturing facility in Guangzhou and employs more than 500 staff.
