Press Release (ePRNews.com) - AL BARSHA, UAE - Nov 01, 2016 - Australian investment and development company SANAD Capital today unveiled its partnership with leading designer and manufacturer of waterpark attractions WhiteWater for its planned AUD 400 million adventure and ‘active-lifestyle’ development. WhiteWater has been responsible for some of the world’s biggest projects to-date, especially in Asia, such as China’s largest water park Yinji Xinmi, the Atlantis Resort and Wild Wadi Water Park in Dubai and Vana Nava in Thailand.
“World-class vision calls for world-class partners, which is why we chose to work with the best. WhiteWater will be responsible for most of the water features, especially the planning and engineering of the waterpark rides, given its credentials as the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of innovative waterpark products,” noted Bradley P. Sutherland, CEO of SANAD Capital
Further details released indicate the development will feature:
· Australia’s biggest wave pool generating waves nine feet high
· The world’s largest interactive aqua play structure (accommodating 2,000 people at any one time)
· The first slide-boarding area in ASEAN, a ‘world’s first’ innovation which brings video-game interactivity to waterslides
· The park will boast the most iconic rides in the waterpark industry, including The ABYSS, CONSTRICTOR and BOOMERANGO MANTA
“This waterpark will provide a complete family experience with features for every age group. The plans contain a dedicated area where kids from four to eight can make a splash, thrills for teens with the AquaLoop, as well as raft rides for the whole family to enjoy together,” added Sutherland.
Dedicated to providing the ultimate ‘wow’ factor to its clients and their guests, WhiteWater President & CEO Geoff Chutter commented, “We are delighted to be partnering with SANAD to create a world-class park and bring state-of-the-art attractions to the Australian market.”
The project will be officially launched before the end of the year, with construction kicking off in 2017. The plans comprise the waterpark including extreme water sports facilities, a sports training and development centre, as well as a four-star hotel, an exhibition and conference centre, cafes and restaurants, and international and local retail outlets.
