Rick Hunter, President and CEO


Background
A former national ski team racer, ProSlide® CEO Rick Hunter’s goal has been to integrate the smooth turns, steep grades and big drops of competitive skiing into water attractions. Rick founded ProSlide® in 1986, partnering with Hans Tanzer – one of Canada’s largest sailboat manufacturers – to introduce the highest-quality fibreglass to the waterpark industry. This partnership established ProSlide’s reputation as a leader in ride performance and quality.

Main products and services
ProSlide® designs and manufactures the world’s best water ride attractions for the world’s greatest parks. We lead the industry in water ride engineering and innovation, and are the only company in the world to win the industry’s highest honour – the IAAPA Impact Award – more than once.

Additional products
ProSlide® helps waterparks tell a compelling and cohesive story, ensuring each fine-tuned element operates at high efficiency and capacity. Since we run our own water park, we understand best practices and smart design. We provide water parks with stairways and queuing areas that eliminate bottlenecks, ride layouts that reduce staffing requirements, raft return and storage that maximizes space, and so much more. Our planning team consists of expert architects and designers that truly understand the industry, and with over three decades of experience, we have built a comprehensive network of knowledgeable partners from around the world that can provide engineering expertise, operations management, and construction specifications.

USPs
• Ride performance: Our expert engineering powers high-performance rides with maximum visual impact.
• Custom design: We tailor every world-class attraction to fit your park perfectly.
• Constant innovation: Our iconic inventions have led the evolution of the water ride industry for over three decades.
• Customer focus: We’re invested in our customers’ success on a personal level.

Key customers
A “best park” is one that captures a dream, seizes an aspiration and delivers an experience. ProSlide® attractions power the world’s most recognized water parks. We’re the trusted partner of Disney, Universal, Wet’N’Wild, Siam Park, Six Flags, and many more.

Plans for 2019
For over three decades, exclusive ProSlide® technology has driven attention and attendance around the world. As the industry leader, we’re always looking to better our best. 2018 was a successful year that showcased five brand new innovations – including the Best New Water Ride award-winning FlyingSAUCER® 45. Moving into 2019, we will continue to power the industry with world-class inventions and breathtaking designs that spark imagination and fuel excitement.

2019 trade shows
ProSlide® will be exhibiting at all three IAAPA shows – IAE in Orlando, AAE in Shanghai and EAS in Paris – as well as IAAPA’s LATAM and EMEA conferences. Other industry events include: WWA, DEAL, FunAsia, CAE, IAAPI tradeshows and more.
