Zamperla, a leading manufacturer of rides and attractions, has launched a Wash-Through Ride System to improve guest safety as attraction sites begin to reopen following the pandemic.

The new system is designed to help theme park operators effectively clean and disinfect rollercoasters to prevent the spread of viruses.

The easy-to-install Wash-Through Ride System comprises of a suspended, tunnel structure, which fits above the ride’s vehicles, releasing a sanitising mist to clean it. The system can be operated either before passengers embark the ride or while they are seated.

The mist is a safe, non-invasive solution that is both odourless and colourless, providing a pleasant experience for guests. The biocidal action of the mist remains active on surfaces for up to 18 hours without creating damage or leaving surfaces wet.

The Wash-Through Ride System takes around 45 seconds to complete the sanitisation of rides. System cycle frequency can be selected by operators, ranging from every five or ten rides.
