This summer shines three times brighter thanks to a supercharging of three park favorites with next-generation slide technology never-before-seen in the Carolinas. These high-thrill slides will transform into full sensory experiences with the installation of new light and sound systems. Riders will fly through each slide on electric journeys that send them down and around lengths of 100, 161, and 176 feet to the pulse of vivid light and dynamic sound. The slides are being transformed into state-of-the-art attractions that will amp up the fun in 2023.
As recently announced, three new experiences will be recharging Serpentine Slides for the upcoming 2023 season, including 12 different lighting and sound effects. The new Bermuda Triangle, as revealed on March 23, offers guests multiple unique riding experiences. The attraction will undergo a complete thematic change, and the park is excited for guests to immerse themselves in the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle.
Leading up to the start of the season on May 20, the park is excited to give guests a behind-the-scenes look at the technology that will power the Bermuda Triangle. Wet ‘n Wild Emerald Pointe is partnering with iSlide to bring guests an exclusive first look at the lighting effects, the installation process, and the history of iSlide. Learn more about what it will take to bring these new experiences to life!
Can you explain the technology behind iSlide?
The idea behind iSlide is to create EVEN MORE FUN through light shows (led) projecting videos and theme sounds, for your guests in older rides. People always want something new. Why do you have to do big investments each year in total new attractions, when you can have constantly changing experiences for lower, more approachable investments that turn the rides into the new family-favorite attractions in your park? It’s our mission to give your riders the very best experience. By letting them choose their favorite theme. Although the ride is spectacular already, we can add even more fun. And again and again by changing the shows remotely. Besides giving new experiences to existing (or new) rides, we are also able to gather statistics from the system (such as the number of riders per hour), or even turn the ride into a marketing tool with a photo shoot.
What makes iSlide different from any other slide experience?
The iSlide technology is made especially for installation in existing rides. Because of this, any slide can be easily equipped with our equipment to provide EVEN MORE FUN! Our systems are online connected and use in-house-made software, allowing us to update new shows, new sounds, and new experiences, yearly, monthly, or even weekly. Through these updates, even your returning guests have new experiences in the rides…
What is the process of installing these to existing slides?
During engineering, each product is designed to match the curvature, and colors of the existing or new ride. On-site, the installation crew will use the overview drawings made, to determine the exact positions of the products.
At first, the cabinets with control equipment will be mounted on the columns of the ride, to make sure there is as little wiring on the slide as possible. The positions of the effects are determined by our engineering department and perfected by the installation crew.
For the ColorMagic Spots, holes will be drilled into the fiberglass. From the inside, the Spots will be mounted into the drilled hole. This will be covered up with a PVC flange with rounded edges, so nobody can hurt themselves. On the outside, an enclosure matching the color and curvature will be placed to protect the equipment from heavy weather influences such as snow.
What is the history of iSlide?
iSlide started in 1996 under a different name, producing fiber optic and lighting systems that are resistant to extreme conditions such as airplane wings, chemical factories, and underwater lighting. Over the years that passed, we got more work in the Waterpark business for lighting and started doing fiber optic systems in water slides. In 2013, due to the high demand for interactive systems, iSlide was established. Since the establishment of iSlide in 2013, we have completed more than 200 projects all over the world with a focus on Europe, the Middle East, and the US.
While starting with fiber optic systems, we are always innovating to create new experiences. Nowadays we install projectors, 360 projections, LED Rings, LED Lighting, Interactive Gaming Systems, Scoreboards, Speedometers, Photoshoots, and Sounds. The latest addition to our always-expanding catalog is our newest Concept ‘’The NightSlide’’, allowing parks to extend their opening hours by illuminating or even projecting onto the exterior of their rides.
“Water park fans better get ready to turn their thrill level up to 11 with these supercharged slides,” says General Manager Adam Good. “Between these new experiences and the addition of the new Bombs Away slides, our guests have five new, exciting reasons to dive into fun with us in 2023.”
