Rick Hunter, President and CEO


Background
As a former national ski team racer, ProSlide® CEO Rick Hunter’s goal has always been to mirror ski racing’s smooth turns, steep grades and big drops in our water rides. When he founded ProSlide in 1986, Rick partnered with Hans Tanzer, one of the largest sailboat manufacturers in Canada. This powerful partnership introduced the highest-quality fibreglass to the waterpark industry. To this day, ProSlide rides are known for their superior ride performance and premium quality.

Main products and services
We design and manufacture water ride attractions. This focus lets us concentrate all of our considerable expertise on building the best water rides in the world. ProSlide® has pioneered almost every major water ride innovation. We’re the only company in the world to win the industry’s highest honour – the IAAPA Impact Award, more than once. We’ve won it three times. In fact, we’ve won more Best Water Ride awards than all other waterslide manufacturers combined.

Additional products
Great waterparks tell a compelling story, every element runs at high efficiency and capacity. Our knowledge of best practices leads to smart design: stairways and queuing areas that eliminate bottlenecks, ride layouts that reduce the number of attendants, and efficient raft return and storage. Our planning team includes veteran architects and designers from both the amusement and waterpark industries. And for the rest, our rich ecosystem of expert partners can provide engineering, operations management, construction specifications and more.

USPs
• Ride performance. With ProSlide® you get sleek, impressive design and a smooth high-thrill ride.
• Custom design. We customise every ride to fit your park perfectly.
• Constant innovation. Our iconic inventions have led the evolution of the water ride industry.
• Customer focus. We’re invested in our customers’ success on a personal level.

Key customers
ProSlide® rides power the best, most successful and most recognised parks in the world. A “best park” is one that captures a dream, seizes on an aspiration and delivers big on expectations. We’re the trusted partner of Disney, Universal, Wet’n Wild, Siam Park, Six Flags, new Atlantis resorts and many more.

Plans for 2018
The fundamental element in our ride technology combines arcs with different radius’ for a faster, tighter line and stronger G-forces. These arcs allow us to mix and match features on a single path and easily transform features from a two-person tubing ride into a six-person raft ride. Much like our iconic TORNADO® funnels – available in 18, 24, 45 and 60-foot diameters – the same flexibility can be applied to many of our ride categories. Our product road-map is looking three years ahead – 2018 will feature the introduction of many higher capacity features with insurmountable ride performance.

2018 trade shows
In the next year, ProSlide will be exhibiting at: all three IAAPA shows -- IAE in Orlando, AAE in Hong Kong and EAS in Amsterdam. As well as IAAPA’s LATAM and EMEA conferences. Other industry events include WWA, DEAL, FunAsia, RAAPA, CAE, IAAPI tradeshows and more.

What the clients say

“ProSlide is second to none. The products are amazing and you always deliver.” Premier Parks, LLC
