World’s First Family Bowl Racing Slide!

Polin introduces a unique, new class-a signature ride: The Space Race® waterslide! 

The ride’s geometry is similar to other bowl-type slides, such as Polin’s own Space Boat - a tube ride that launches from a tower shoots riders down a chute and into a bowl where they gain ever-increasing velocity as centrifugal force sends them shooting around and around before they plummet through the bottom. The Space Race® introduces a wholly new opportunity for fun by giving groups of riders a chance to compete as they urge their teammates to be the fastest in crossing the finish line.

Space Race® is a distinctive ride that offers a unique entry tower. Riders begin building their adrenaline rush even before they step into their rafts due to the tower’s design. It allows all riders to see other teams competing against one another as they wait their turn to enter the race.
