Glassy loop ride picks up innovation award

April 20th, 2021

Polin Waterparks’ Glassy Looping Rocket, the world’s first fully transparent composite waterslide, has been chosen as the winner of Best Product Innovation at the Park World Excellence Awards 2020.

The Looping Rocket is a high-adrenaline ride that, with the fully transparent glassy option, becomes even more intense. Polin says riders can expect one of the highest and most adrenaline-filled drops you can possibly experience.

In 2018, Polin’s new transparent composite called Glassy was officially previewed at a number of industry trade shows including the IAAPA Expo in Orlando, USA. Polin says this satisfies the need for a quality, functional and reasonably priced solution compared to the transparent acrylic components previously available.

During the covid pandemic, Polin worked on installations at many parks worldwide, including the one featuring this ground-breaking innovation. The world’s first fully transparent composite Looping Rocket waterslide can be found at Candyland Waterpark, Vogue Hotel, in Bodrum, Turkey.
