WhiteWater, based in British Columbia, was honoured with a Brass Ring Award for its racing slide, Parallel Pursuit, in the category of Best New Product—Water Park Ride/Attraction, at this year’s International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) Expo in Orlando, Fla.

IAAPA recognized Parallel Pursuit for elevating the guest experience while considering practical, operational needs. Its design makes for high throughput in a compact footprint, and its power and water efficiencies as well as high-quality fiberglass make the total cost of ownership attractive.

Side-by-side racing from start line to photo finish, Parallel Pursuit is an exciting, interactive water slide that has guests at Nocatee Spray Park in Florida coming back for repeat rides. Its innovation lies in the low separating walls that allow rivals to see and hear each other, on straightaways and turns, in open and in enclosed sections, all while speeding down the flume at up to 32 km/h (19 mi/h).

Available as a mat racer or a body slide—that is, head first or feet first—Parallel Pursuit is highly configurable with varying thrill levels. It can be mixed and matched with AquaTube segments and enhanced with AquaLucent light effects. Parallel Pursuit has no height limitations and can fit into a tight footprint.
