Polin Waterparks, a global leader in the design, production and installation of waterparks and water attractions, has been awarded a Leading Edge Award during the World Waterpark Association (WWA) Virtual Show.
The award was in recognition of Polin’s work on Suntago Water World in Poland, Europe’s largest indoor waterpark.
WWA defines the accolade as being: “Awarded to individuals or park for creativity in the development of new themes, facilities, programs, services or operational concepts in the water attractions industry; and to suppliers who have developed new concepts, products or services to the benefit of park members, their customers or the water attractions industry.”
Suntago Water World extends over 67,000 mt. sq. It can accommodate up to 10,000, 365 days of the year. The park’s swimming pools cover a total area of 3,500 sq. mt. The waterpark features 32 waterslides, which have a combined length of 3.2km. Europe’s longest waterslide is among Suntago Water World’s slides, at 320 metres. As is more than half a dozen of Polin’s signature slides.
The waterpark is also home to 10 saunas and luxury spas, a 40,000 sq. mt. “tropical” garden which is home to over 700 palm trees and plants imported from Florida, Malaysia and Costa Rica.
The honour for Suntago Water World is the latest of a string of Leading Edge awards presented to Polin Waterparks. In 2014, Polin received a WWA’s Leading Edge Award as supplier partner for the Cartoon Network Amazone Waterpark in Thailand. In 2016, the waterpark supplier was acknowledged with a Leading Edge Award for its expertise in innovation. In 2019, Polin was awarded by the WWA for its “innovation in waterslide manufacturing that allows for artistic theming, unique patterns and sound effects.”
Sohret Pakis, Polin’s director of marketing and communications, commented: “This recognition of our passionate efforts by WWA means a lot. We gratefully send all of our thanks to the WWA board of directors and congratulate all the winners who are passionate about serving and contributing to this amazing industry. Together we are strong and successful.”
