'Every Year Better' at Le Pommier
The French camping resort is expanding for another successful season that includes Polin's waterslides.
France's biggest waterpark, Aqua'Ardèche at Le Pommier Camping Park (also known as Domaine Le Pommier), is getting better every year according to the resort's slogan - and one of the primary reasons is its continuing offering unique experiences and waterslides for the waterpark guests.
A growing holiday trend
Campgrounds are growing in popularity in France. Nearly 10,000 registered campsites can be found there - almost half the total number in all of Europe. But with so many options, owners must make sure they provide ongoing reasons for campers to return each holiday season. As a result, Le Pommier - located about a half kilometer (1/3 mile) from Villeneuve-de-Berg - first worked with Polin three years ago to add two of the slide expert's signature rides to the resort: a Tsunami and a Space Boat.
Based on the success of those attractions, the luxury camping facility decided to expand again. Then, it added Polin's Family Rafting Slide and a Looping Rocket to Aqua'Ardèche.
Beautiful slides in a beautiful locale
Aurore Court, Le Pommier's communications officer, says the unique and attractive designs of the waterslides set the firm apart from others. "We want our guests to have fun whether they are riding the waterslides or just enjoying the view as they relax within our park," she says. "Our waterslides are incredibly beautiful, streamlined design and offer unique rider experience."
Polin was just as happy to be able to work with Le Pommier again. "Aqua'Ardèche is one of the most beautiful waterpark complexes in Europe, says Kubilay Alpdogan, Director of Sales and Design at Polin. "It was truly an honor to be able to work with the facility again. We take great pride in the fact that the park chose us as their partner during each of their recent expansions."
He adds that France, as a whole, has been a great market for Polin. "We truly love working in France. And our love affair with the country will be especially evident by the end of the summer - that's when we will be opening another major waterpark project in the country," he says. (More details on that project will be released in the near future.)
Polin's signature slides at Le Pommier
Over the last three years, Polin has installed five of its highly engineered aquatic offerings at Le Pommier's waterpark:
- Tsunami & Rafting Slide Combo: The Tsunami easily competes against similar slides but at a fraction of the cost. This energetic, safe, fun, innovative ride offers high-capacity advantages and is strategically developed to ensure end-to-end excitement, as well as an unforgettable ride experience. Considered a "must" for new parks, it also makes a great addition to existing facilities.
- Space Boat + Aquatube Combo. Engineered to combine the excitement of the Space Hole and the thrills of the Black Hole into one attraction, this slide differs by using tubes (single or double). Guests first experience the surprise and visual harmony of the Black Hole; that experience is followed by the excitement of the Space Hole.
- Family Rafting Slide. The first and the only RTM-manufactured family slide in the ındustry, this attraction offers a perfectly shiny finish on both sides. The unique ride makes it possible for guests to share the entertainment and excitement of a ride as a group. They can experience the joy of twists, turns and drops in a 6- to 8-passenger circular inflatable raft. A conveyor system can deliver the boats quickly and safely to the start platform.
- Looping Rocket. This high-adrenaline ride provides one of the steepest drops guests will ever experience. The slide is available in both "Magic Shine" and Magic Shine translucent colors.
