Expansion of an amusement park in Belgium

Plopsaland De Panne is a theme and amusement park at the West-Flemish coast near the French border.
Plopsaland De Panne focuses on providing family attractions: Dark Rides and other fun rides.

To extend the range of theme parks, the operator decided to build a water park last year, which is heated by a fiberglass slide area of Wiegand among other things.

In October 2013, the groundbreaking ceremony for the largest indoor water park in Belgium with the name "Plopsaqua" was carried out .
Inside the bath you can not find the classically-themed tropical landscape, but you travel to the far north to visit Vicky and his Vikings.

However, the most striking feature of the new park is our fiberglass slide area.

The X-Tube, a tire slide equipped with an acrylic element, has a length of 163.5 m - pure adrenaline. In the Super Loop, made by our Canadian partners Pro Slide, the guest takes speed up on a long straight before he enters rapidly in the loop. The guest is brought back down to earth facts in the exit before he goes into the nearly 100 m long tube.

The complete fiberglass slide was technically approved after three months installation time and was taken into operation in March.
