Interessantes Interview von Rainer Maelzer, Co-Geschäftsführer der wiegand.maelzer Gmbh über die Wasserrutschen-Trends der Zukunft!
Early in 2016 Royal Caribbean Cruises sent Liberty of the Seas to the dry dock in Freeport, Bahamas, where this vessel received a major facelift. Besides new attractions, such as a climbing wall, a surf simulator and a zipline, three large waterslides of wiegand.maelzer were installed in only one month! In addition to the Typhoon and Cyclone slides, our company is proud to have delivered the Tidal Wave, first of its kind ever built on a cruise ship! Altogether, they form “The Perfect Storm”: what a great name for these amazing water attractions!

Mashhad – the second largest city in Iran – is not only known as a place of pilgrimage, but also offers the water park “WaterWavesLand”, one of the largest indoor waterparks. To make visitors’ hearts beat even faster in future, wiegand. maelzer is now adding two more slides to the park: one is the Family Twister with a length of unbelievable 229 metres, a total of four uphill sections and a special multimedia element. In addition, the park will be made even more attractive to visitors with the Freefall slide, which is particularly steep with a 60° gradient at a length of 22 metres.
Through faraway galaxies in Bucharest - north of the Romanian capital of Bucharest, the largest and most modern spa in the country has opened on the 14th of january 2016 Apart from the spa area, “Therme Bucuresti” offers a very special indoor building which has a connection to the outdoor area. In total, there are 16 slides from wiegand.maelzer, which are causing a stir. Everything revolves around the topic ‘universe’: the guests virtually slide through galaxies – in the Boomerang, for example, you experience the limits of zero gravity on your own body. Each target group benefits from an individually composed slide mixture of FRP and stainless steel: Apart from nine family slides and challenging slides such as the Family Twister with two uphill segments, the Wild River and the speed slide, there are seven children’s slides for the very little ones.

For many, Säntispark near St. Gallen is a perfect destination place because this largest water park in East Switzerland offers a very special bathing and sauna experience with fitness and health elements. Now, an impressive new complex has been added to the leisure paradise, with a total of eight large slides: wiegand.maelzer was able to impress the client Migros Ostschweiz with its compact and elaborate slide layout that takes into account all of the customer’s requirements. The slides are now specially equipped with transparent Plexiglas elements, light & sound fittings, up-hill sections, landing basins made of stainless steel, sandwich insulation in the outside area and a vertical tyre lift. Apart from the five Family Twister tyre slides, two Racers, one Boomerang made of stainless steel and a tube slide RR 1400 with a 12.8 metre up-hill section, Säntispark also offers three special body slides: a tube slide RR1200 with special effects, a slide with a cone & bowl combination and, for the brave, a nose-dive into the Sloop highspeed slide.
The park that only opened its doors in 2014 was transformed across an area of about 1,500m² in the course of four months and extended by a total of 105 water play elements. The fascinating diversity of the play opportunities, the elements of which include LED providing illumination at twilight, allows the park to be a magnet for children and adults. Besides the extensive scope of the delivery, another challenge was the installation of the objects in a short time frame. Owing to perfect collaboration with the client, the water playground could even be handed over before the negotiated deadline.
The "SlideWheel" is the development of the decade: never before has there been such a spectacular waterslide which, as it turns, requires completely new motion sequences from the sliders and provides maximum fun. Due to the elaborate star design, the SlideWheel is not just an "iconic ride", but also combines the craziest sliding experiences: from extreme G-force, backwards sliding, pendulum movements right up to airtime fun.
Over the last few years, Belorussian aerial freestyle skiers have won a number of medals at world championships and Olympic Games. In order to honour these victories, a one-of-a-kind freestyle centre was created, offering an unparalleled combination of sports and recreation. wiegand.maelzer was selected to supply seven water attractions of different complexity levels as well as a water playground for kids. It was wiegand.maelzer's second project in the Republic of Belarus after Waterpark Lebyazhy, which, as of today, is amongst the largest waterparks in Europe. Opened in March 2015, the Freestyle Centre gives its visitors a unique opportunity to watch Belorussian and foreign aerial freestyle skiers training on a huge ski-jump. At the same time, they can enjoy three stainless steel body slides, one body and one raft slide made of FRP, the Body Bowl from FRP and the Cannonball providing visitors with the unrivalled pleasure of an approx. 8m throw into the pool. The multilevel play-structure is made of stainless steel with pumping buckets, climbing elements and small slides. Even the smallest visitors can delight in a water play area with several engaging elements and two pools specially designed for kids.
Each region has its specific requirements for the design of a water park. However, the slides are at the heart of the experience, always being the central element for the emotionalisation of visitors. In Asia, it is not only since the successful Ninja Warrior TV shows that courage and skill must be shown in very special challenges. In the Blue One Waterpark in South Korea, it is two Cannonballs with different flight distances from wiegand.maelzer that provide a real spectacle: the guests are catapulted like a cannon ball over a distance of up to 10 metres into the pool. The park ordered one Cannonball for children weighing more than 30 kg and a further one for guests weighing more than 50 kg.
The preparation for the competition has started, the adrenalin is pumping - and the most important question is: who will be the champion defeating friends and family in the stainless steel Galaxy Racer with parallel start and home stretch? They compete side by side and they all just want one thing: victory! There are up to 4 racers aged 7 years and older who compete against each other on special mats and can plunge into almost 100 meters of pure sliding fun. And no matter who is the first to finish, at the end of the spectacular mat slide there is always the call: "Rematch!"
In August 2015, after four months of construction, wiegand.maelzer added the Galaxy Racer to the Badeparadies Schwarzwald. A particular highlight is that the Racer can be covered on cold days. Therefore, after completion, the GALAXY SCHWARZWALD will be one of the largest and most variegated indoor sliding facilities in Europe, showing at the same time why "Made in Germany" also has an excellent standing for water parks. The Racer is made of high quality V4A stainless steel and has a maintenance-free joint that is not visible.
