Aqualand Moravia will double their outdoor swimming area for the summer and open the largest water slide in the country.
The new outdoor swimming area, under construction all winter, will feature a number of new improvements, including a water world for children and a lazy river as well as a new entrance and changing rooms next to the campsite.
The most notable new member of the outdoor area, though, is a brand new, 242-meter water slide.
The new slide, or water roastercoast, will take guests uphill and downhill. Guests will start on a platform several stories up, approximately 17 meters. Guests will experience an adrenaline-filled ride up and down the slide; the direction of the two-seat raft will change approximately five times during the ride.
The water slide is unique to this part of Europe; you can only find similar types of rides in the Canary Islands and in Galveston, Texas.
The parts for the water slide came from one of the leaders in the field, a Canadian company called Whitewater. It took about a month for the parts to arrive in Europe. The water slide will be decked out in the Czech national colors.
Passengers will be weighed before getting on the ride to ensure the raft can go uphill against water pressure. More than 250 kids and adults will ride the slide each hour.
There expansion will feature something for everyone. The new children’s area will have children’s slides, fountains, waterfalls, a water castle and more. The pools will have a more shallow depth to accommodate children of all ages.
Aqualand Moravia also built a new refreshment area next to the children’s world for parents to relax.
In total, the new Aqualand Moravia outdoor area features 20 water slides and rides as well as 15 pools.
Aqualand invested a quarter of a billions crowns on expanding and improving their outdoor pool area for the summer, according to the water park.
