Water attractions specialists Interlink has signed a contract with Qetaifan Projects to design, manufacture and install a SuperFlume ride. The SuperFlume will be located at Qetaifan Projects’ new waterpark on Qetaifan Island North in Qatar.

The Superflume will have a number of unique features and will be the first attraction of its kind installed in the region.

Riders leave the station on board a 20-seater themed boat. The boat takes riders on a journey that explores the history and techniques of oil exploration in Qatar over the last 100 years. The boat voyages through lifts and drops as the story unfolds in a series of themed zones.

The finale of the experience takes place at the ride’s focal point, known as the cracking tower, which ascends riders up a vertical lift. The lift is accompanied with special effects, as the boat slowly emerge into daylight before being plunged into a 16-metre-high chute creating a huge splash.

John Davies, commercial director at Interlink, commented on installing the new immersive SuperFlume in Qatar: We are delighted to be involved with such a prestigious project like Qetaifan Island North’s Waterpark. This unique, one of a kind SuperFlume ride is set to become something really spectacular and will surely prove to be a truly exciting family ride for visitors to the waterpark,” said Davies.
