ProSlide Technology has launched their latest water offering at SeaWorld’s Adventure Island with the debut of Rapids Racer, the world’s first ProSlide Dueling FlyingSAUCER. 

The aquatic attraction marks its debut as the newest innovation by ProSlide – taking the next step in the world of water ride racing. 

ProSlide has previously worked on five SeaWorld properties during their decades-long partnership. Meanwhile, the Dueling FlyingSAUCER marks their 10th installation at Adventure Island.

The Dueling FlyingSAUCER is the only feature of its kind; a water attraction which allows riders to race in the same direction. “This new feature is built on the foundation of award-winning rides and ProSlide innovation”, says Ray Smegal, ProSlide’s Chief Commercial Officer. 

“It establishes a completely new category of ride feature and is poised to create a monumental shift in the water ride landscape. We’re thrilled to partner again with SeaWorld and Adventure Island to debut this one-of-a-kind ProSlide water ride.”

The Dueling FlyingSAUCER combines aspects of ProSlide’s Dueling PIPEline and FlyingSAUCER into a single water ride feature. “These are two of our most popular water rides around the world”, says Greg White, ProSlide’s Vice-President, Products. 

“Both features draw a tremendous amount of their inspiration from our company’s history in competitive ski racing, so combining them into a single experience was a natural progression for us.”

ProSlide promise a riveting experience in which ‘Two vehicles enter the feature via two closed dueling flumes. As riders drop and dive through the feature like world cup skiers through a giant slalom ski turn, they can see and hear their competition, creating a neck-and-neck competitive racing experience.’
