Siberia to get Russia's largest indoor waterpark 

By The Siberian Times reporter
25 August 2016

The Tyumen complex will include mineral spring baths and a hotel, with a target of one million visitors a year.

The 10,000 square metre facility will offer more than ten waterslides with the aim of being an all year round facility attracting families from a wide area including Chelyabinsk, Omsk, and Yekaterinburg.

Polin Waterparks, a global manufacturer from Turkey, is overseeing the project. 

'Being an all-season facility gives it an edge over other entertainment options,' said  Selim Doguoglu, head of Polin's Russian office. 'Families can enjoy it year-round.

The 10,000 square metre facility will offer more than ten waterslides with the aim of being an all year round facility attracting families from a wide area including Chelyabinsk, Omsk, and Yekaterinburg.

'There are not a lot of entertainment offerings that accommodate the wide range of ages that families include, from toddlers to seniors.'

The waterpark will include a 'Turbolance Slide' - the first in Russia to do so. 

This extreme slide involves two-person rafts shooting through a series of steep drops and curves and also propelled uphill on a wide, sweeping, vertical slope, before hurtling over the edge, before gravity safely pulls riders backwards in a reverse ride.

On the Windigo, riders enter alongside one another in enclosed tubes that spread out to create geometrical curving patterns high above the ground.

Each slide curls around, parallel with the others, with from two to four on each side. Eventually, the tubes converge to create a series of side-by-side, high-speed multi-racer lanes.

The Magic Hole, an enclosed ride, pushes guests from side to side as they are launched through wide curves. Rafts of various sizes speed through the circular path before exiting into a splash pool.

Polin created the Megacentre Gorizont Aquapark in Rostov-on-Don and the Gorki Indoor Waterpark near Ryazan.
