Watermania is one of the latest additions to Zamperla’s ever-growing product range and takes advantage of people’s natural enjoyment of playing with water.
It takes the form of a duelling Tea Cup ride on water with a standard configuration of six, four seater cups providing a total capacity of 24 passengers and a theoretical hourly capacity of 480. Each rider is seated in front of a water blaster which allows them to shoot water at fellow riders. As the whole ride rotates around a central axis, each cup also rotates, alternately clockwise and anti-clockwise, making the ‘battle’ between the cups more fun! Loading and unloading of the cups is carried out from outside the pool thanks to a control system that ensures the ride stops in the same position after each ride.
As well as the standard format, for those operators looking for a larger capacity ride, Watermania is also available in a double configuration –two standard rides next to each other – offering a total of 48 seats and an hourly capacity of 960 riders. Additionally, it is a very compact ride with the diameter of the single version, including surrounding fencing, being 13m/42.6ft while the double version is 25m x 13m/82ft x 42.5ft. So, if you are looking to add a great ‘cool down’ attraction to your operation that is sure to be an instant hit with all ages, then look no further than Zamperla’s Watermania.
