Polin Makes Splash with Industry's First Water-Powered, Interactive Game
Competition gets players wet as they battle against animated opponents in first-ever Splash Cabin attraction.
Splash Cabin debuts at Aquafantasy Waterpark
Turkey (September 13, 2017) - Interactive gaming reached a completely new level of competition with Polin Waterpark's introduction of its innovative Splash Cabin gaming system. Polin Waterparks (Istanbul, Turkey) installed the world's first Splash Cabin at Aquafantasy Waterpark in Selçuk, İzmir, Turkey in July.
Splash Cabin is a unique game that allows two players to engage in a fun, water-fueled battle with animated competitors using an interactive screen. Guests play from inside a beach-bungalow-style cabin and score points by hitting moving targets while trying to avoid being hit themselves by waterjets shooting from screen-embedded nozzles. Players earn points for hitting targets, and the loser is doused with a water-splash surprise. On the operator side, it is an extra revenue generator. One other feature of this unique attraction is that offering a racing opportunity, the attractions ensures loyalty among the visitors.
An Enterprising Partnership
To create Splash Cabin, Polin partnered with Lagotronics (Venlo, Netherlands), a specialty firm that creates state-of-the-art technology and innovative solutions. Together, the firms have begun an imaginative collaboration developing new, original interactive waterslide experiences for both water sliding and water gaming. The first of their state-of-the-art projects to make its debut is Splash Cabin, which the two introduced last fall at IAAPA's annual convention in Orlando, Fla. But the two also have ground-breaking projects in the works that include interactive dark rivers, virtual-reality waterslides and VR waterslide gaming. The alliance between the two companies aims to offer a wholly new dimension to waterpark fun.
Never Accepting Less Than the Best
Muharrem Atilla, Waterpark Manager of Aquafantasy, says he is extremely happy with the park's newest attraction. "Offering breaththrough attractions is the norm for our park, which is one of the largest in Turkey," he says. "But the Splash Cabin is a completely new attraction, even for us. It combines so many elements that deliver guest satisfaction. Multiple guests can play simultaneously, the queues move quickly due to the limited game timing, and they can even share their experiences on social media, which expands exposure of the attraction to potential new fans who aren't even at the park.''
"We're truly thrilled to add a Splash Cabin to our list of attractions."
The new gaming option isn't the only Polin-designed waterpark attraction guests can enjoy at Aquafantasy. Polin Waterparks has installed a variety of its most creative rides at the award-winning facility, including its Super Combo and Wave Slide. Aquafantasy's honors range from Best Splash Accommodation Winner from First Choice, the Quality Award from Nazar, multiple Certificates of Excellence from TripAdvisor and the European Star Award for Best Waterpark to the Golden Pony Award, Most Valuable Product (MVP) Award, Shining Star Award and more.
