  • Polin Wins IAAPA Brass Ring Award for Space Race Waterslide

    The prestigious award recognizes a best-in-its-kind product at the annual international event.

    Polin Waterparks is extremely proud to announce that it has been awarded one of the most prestigious honors in the amusement industry: a Brass Ring for Best New Product from the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions. IAAPA bestowed the award on Polin for its new Space Race waterslide, a first-of-its-kind waterslide that allows groups of riders to compete against one another. The annual award recognizes the best new product or service in the category of Water Park Ride/Attraction category in Class A (for products costing US$2 million or more). Polin is honored and sends its thanks to IAAPA and the judges for recognizing this unique streamlined design waterslide. 

     

    The award was presented to Polin Waterparks during the IAAPA Attractions Expo in Orlando, Florida, on Monday, Nov. 15.

      

    Ali Cansun, Director of R&D of Polin Waterparks, said that achieving this award was monumental for the company. "Every waterslide we design begins with the belief that it should be more than just a compilation of features," he explained. "Instead, we look at it from the perspective that it should be seriously simple in delivering fun yet entirely revolutionary in broadening the industry's horizons - to go beyond the routine. A new waterslide's structure and technology should be designed and engineered to work together and improve on one another. We believe that's the only way to create a waterslide that is balanced and congruent."

      

    That approach is what led to the development of the Space Race, an advanced waterslide that delivers a uniquely competitive riding experience.

      

    "Its invention fulfills a life-long dream of our company: To give guests the experience of competing in a true, real-life race with other riders within a bowl slide. The result of our efforts has been the creation of the first slide of its kind in the world," Cansun added.


    Engineering this waterslide meant approaching every element differently to ensure the slide's engineering was not only revolutionary and breathtaking but also practical. Polin succeeded and developed a unique, streamlined design, distinctive entry tower and quadruple rafts.

      

    A history of tradition

    The IAAPA Attractions Expo is the premier conference and trade show for the global attractions industry, and the 2016 trade show floor was the largest in the event's 98-year history, surpassing the previous record of 568,800 square feet set in 2001. IAAPA Attractions Expo provides a platform for the industry's newest, game-changing products to be announced, debuted, tested, tried, and purchased by influential global decision makers. More than 1,000 exhibiting companies, including nearly 200 first-timers, showcased innovations in 125 product categories.

      

    The tradition of the brass ring, a term now synonymous with spectacular achievement, dates back to the 1800s. Rings were suspended above carousel riders - low enough for them to grasp but high enough to pose a challenge. Most rings were made of iron, but a few were made of brass, so grabbing the brass ring was a valuable treat. Skilled riders who grabbed a brass ring often earned prizes, including a free ride on the carousel.

      

    The IAAPA Brass Ring Awards are similarly prestigious, marking achievements of excellence throughout the global attractions industry.

  • India welcomes 1st King Cobra waterslide

    Polin Waterparks debuted its King Cobra waterslide among a wide variety of other waterslides at the new Amaazia Amusement Park that opened in December 2016 in Surat, India. The port city, known for its diamond industry, now can boast another jewel with this award-winning ride.

     

    The waterpark portion of Amaazia, which covers 4.5 acres (nearly 2 hectares) and can accommodate up to 3,000 visitors daily, is the first section of the multi-varied amusement park to open. Along with the first King Cobra, the park also offers the largest wave pool in the region. The second phase of the facility will include a full-scale family entertainment center that caters to people ages 2 to 70. These new sections - which will feature a Bollywood theme - include an indoor amusement park, bird park, snow park, shopping mall, hotel, banquet halls, rooms for weddings and other functions, a three-screen cinema and "7D" theater. 

      

    Guests entering the waterpark encounter an Amazonian rain forest of brilliantly colored tropical birds, a whimsical menagerie of wild animals - from a pride of lions to elephants, koala bears, polar bears and water buffalo - and aquatic decorations in bright, playful hues. Polin Waterparks installed nearly a dozen waterslide attractions to match the South American theme, including a large children's water play attraction.

     

    An auspicious opening

    The chief minister of the Gujarat State in Indiainaugurated the park in December 2016 with a host of other dignitaries in attendance, including the deputy chief minister and popular singer Badshah, who composed and sang Amaazia's theme song. Sanjay Movalia, executive director of Rajhans Group, and Alpesh Kotadia, executive director of Rajgreen Group, also attended the inauguration.

     

    The new park is owned by the Rajgreen Group of Companies, one of the fastest-growing business conglomerates in India. The park's development was estimated at US$26,327,500 (€25,000,000). Amaazia will eventually cover 16 acres (6.5 hectares). The far-reaching facility is being developed by Sanderson Group, an international thematic entertainment design and construction corporation. Sanderson was first set up in Australia and now has its headquarters in Malaysia. The firm is recognized for successfully delivering projects for entertainment giants such as Disney, Universal Studios, DreamWorks, Nickelodeon, Sea World, Ripley's, Chimelong, Meraas, Village Roadshow and Fox Studios, among many others.

     

    Popular rides receive rave reviews 

    Early visitors to the new waterpark described it as the "best experience of my life," "world-class" and outright "awesome." Special comments singled out the award winning King Cobra waterslide. The other waterslides are all uniquely desgined for the park. Most of them are fusion, combination waterslides that offer thrilling ride experience. At the same time, all the waterslides are RTM manufactuıred and they feature natural lights and special patterns. Other Polin waterpark rides at Amaazia include:

    • King Cobra. Guests can ride either singly or with another person as they race through a circular path of twists, turns and surprises. The heart-pounding ride gives guests an extra surge of excitement as they shoot up a nearly vertical slope before sliding backwards, several times, before exiting the ride.
    • Looping Rocket. This attraction features a unique "launch capsule" 73 feet in the air with a trap door that opens to send riders through a high-speed, horizontal and literally heart-pounding 360-degree loop.
    • Freefall and Body Slide Combo Waterslide. The Freefall section of this attraction offers an exhilarating drop for guests who want to experience the thrill of a freefall without the danger. Connected to it is an open slide that ensures a safe, smooth ride requiring no mats with a wide variety of design options and slide paths.
    • Twister Racer and Windigo Combo. The Twister Racer is a four-lane multi slide that blends speed with twisting turns as multiple tubes intertwine to create a thrill-slide experience. Merged into its design is Polin's Windigo, a sophisticated thrill ride that sends guests through side-by-side enclosed tubes that spread out to create geometrical curving patterns high above the ground.
    • Black Hole. This attraction is a part-open/part-closed slide in which guests enjoy the full effects of Polin's Natural Light Effects technology, which creates a visual feast for guests. The visual experience is created by water sluicing through the tubes and interacting with sunlight.
    • Uphill Navigatour and Blackhole Combo. Guests sliding along the Navigatour's breathtaking 135-meter (443-feet) path slip in and out of the light as they experience an amazing light show. In the Blackhole portion of the ride, guests continue along a path offast-changing colors and designs in a high-speed trip through multiple turns and inclines.
    • Black Hole & Turbolance Combo. The ride starts slowly in the Black Hole section of this fused slide but quickly picks up velocity to deliver a high-speed adventure before connecting to Polin's Turbo Lance extreme slide. On this section of the ride, guests experience a steep drop that propels them steeply up a giant vertical slide before they are rushed backwards down the slope, flying over a hill and ending in a splash pool. 
    • Space Boat. One of Polin's most popular extreme slides, the Space Boat combines the excitement of the Space Hole and the Black Hole. Guests begin the ride via the Black Hole's high-speed,enclosed tube slide, slipping into a swirling vortex of multiple turns and inclines, including dizzying changes in lighting and colors. They are discharged into a huge, open bowl where centrifugal force whirls them around the insides until they drop through the center and experience a breathtaking splash below.

    Kubilay Alpdogan, Director of Sales & Design of Polin Waterparks, says that working with such esteemed leaders in the entertainment industry enables Polin Waterparks to put new clients at ease, knowing they are in partnership with the world's best. "Being able to work alongside firms such as the Rajgreen Group and Sanderson is another feather in our cap, and these parternships help us raise the bar for the entire amusement industry."

  • A Racing, Streamlined-Design, Family Raft, Adrenaline Waterslide  


    Polin Waterparks is pleased to announce the introduction of a new waterslide that has never before been seen in the waterparks sector.


    The new Storm Racer incorporates a variety of key features that set it apart from every previously designed waterslides in the industry: unique geometry, high capacity, a pioneering ride configuration and an exclusive, interactive "Watersplash" feature that ensures intense competition and blasts of adrenaline. 


    Unique Benefits  

    • A Unique Rider Experience. The slide's streamlined geometric path is unlike any other previously designed attraction. The result is an expertly engineered waterslide that takes guests by surprise from the start of the ride when they launch from an exceptional height: 24 meters (79 feet), nearly eight stories high. The ride extends along a slide path of 87 meters (285 feet) at a speed of 11 meters (36 feet/second), nearly 40 kilometers (25 miles/hour). The tunnel start of the slide features Polin's patented Natural Light Effects technology, and Polin's Slide 'n Roll feature is also available. Upon entering the slide, guests shoot through a closed tube that curves downward in a wide arc. They then are plunged into an open bowl configuration where they experience the strength of centrifugal force as they are propelled up a wide, sweeping, curved, vertical slope. Rafts rush toward the top of the slope and - just before they seemingly shoot over the edge - gravity safely pulls them backward in a reverse ride. The energy gained in this journey provides the force to propel them down and out of the bowl where their high-adrenaline journey is extended through another closed tube before ending in a splash pool or run-out. The engineering accomplishment of this slide - with a curved rather than classical slope on the uphill portion of the slide - is a major accomplishment within waterslide design and a concrete example of Polin's customer-oriented, flexible and efficient design and engineering understanding.  
    • Attractively Interactive. As rafts shoot to the top of the slope, Polin Waterparks' exclusive Watersplash sensors detect the exact high point reached by the raft. The sensors are connected to a lighting system that displays results on a score board to create a competitive adrenaline rush for the riders. At each level, the lighting system showcases another color and, if the raft makes it to the top, the Watersplash feature activates and water splashes over the riders creating great fun and memories. Winners can be determined based on each hour of the day, day of the week or the entire season to ensure months of competition between teams.
    • A Competitive Family Experience. In the past, waterslide designers have created attractions that have allowed one individual to race against another individual or multiple individuals. The Storm Racer, however, allow families - or teams - to race one another together. The inducement to test different rider impacts on the raft's agility and speed will push competition to new extremes. 
    • Central Tower. The Storm Racer employs a giant central tower from which the slide launches. The use of this type of tower provides multiple benefits. First, it promises unique spectator appeal with its tower looming above guests and becoming a central point around which a park can be designed. Second, it gives facilities options because the tower can accommodate both a single slide and two symmetrical slides.
    • High Capacity. Because this slide uses multiple family rafts running simultaneously, the number of guests it can accommodate is 8 x 120 riders per hour. This enables multiple guests to share the excitement on the riders' side. On the operator's side, parks gain the advantage of easier queue management.

    Product Features:

    • Central start tower with a compact design (between the two raft entry points)
    • High-capacity (120 x 8 riders per hour)
    • A shared slide experience with others in the queue
    • Family-raft waterslide
    • Racing waterslide
    • Streamlined and iconic design
    • Water splash feature (with interactive lights)
    • Both single or racer options available
    • Theming possibilities
    • L-RTM-manufactured components (please see below for further information)

    SPE, NLE and Slide 'n Roll options are available

  • Royal Caribbean's new  "Harmony of the Seas" cruise welcomes a waterpark 

        

    Five decks above a main courtyard of the world's largest cruise ship, passengers on the Royal Caribbean's new  "Harmony of the Seas" might catch a glimpse of the expansive ocean as they ride slides towering 10 stories above the blue sea. But that word "might" gives a clue as to what typically grabs their attention during the slip-sliding journey: the heart-pounding adrenaline rush. A guest called one of the attractions the "quite possibly the best waterslide at sea."

     

    Royal Caribbean Lines launched the new ship - the world's largest ever built - in May 2016. Among its most-revered features are its three waterslides, together referred to as The Perfect Storm: the Cyclone, Typhoon and Supercell. Polin Waterparks manufactured the waterslides using two of its most popular waterslides namely the Aquatube and Space Hole. 

    • Aquatube. Polin installed two of these slides - individually named on the Harmony as the Cyclone and Typhoon- to form the ship's signature attraction, which RCL calls The Ultimate Abyss. Guests enter the slides on Deck 18 in the Pool and Sports Zone at the back of the ship. They zip in whooshing circles through its enclosed tubes, alternating between transparent and dark sections, before dropping about 100 feet and exiting to the Boardwalk onto Deck 15.
    •  Space Hole. This ride - named the Supercell on Harmony - features a giant basin that some reviewers have referred to as an elegant "champagne bowl." The attraction is one of the largest slides available for speed riding. Guests zoom through an enclosed tube that deposits them into the open bowl. There, centrifugal force whirls them around the interior before they exit through the center and make a breathtaking splash below. Guests access the slides from a glass platform, which provides a feeling of being suspended in mid-air, giving many riders pause before they even begin the 10-story plunge. (More than a few, in fact, change their minds about taking on the challenge, which begins 150 feet in the air.)

    All of Harmony's waterslides are produced using Polin's innovative Resin Transfer Molding (RTM)  technology. This process which is the latest technology in waterslide manufacturing creates waterslides components that are smooth and shiny on both sides. This feature - which Polin calls Magic Shine - means the tunnel components don't get dirty as quickly and are easier to clean - definite advantages for the variety of weather conditions a cruise ship can encounter. It also means the slides are stronger - yet lighter - and easier to install. Especially important, it provides the slides with extra strength to stand up to high wind loads. Plus, the waterslides offer Polin's patented Natural Light Effects technology.

     

    Polin worked with project-management partner Myrtha Pools (Castiglione delle Stiviere, Italy) to oversee the special engineering and installation requirements that the project required. (Myrtha designed and installed two 50-meter pools that will be part of the 2016 Rio Olympics.)

     

    Despite the unique considerations that a cruise ship offers, Polin's waterslides on the Harmony of the Seas still deliver the same heart-thumping thrills of slides on terra firma. In fact, the slides on RCL's ship offer a wholly different kind of excitement.

    A Special Section for the Littlest Guests

    While being the largest ship in the world is reason enough to get guests' attention, and offering a 10-story slide to boot, Harmony is also the first ship in Royal's fleet to feature a mini waterpark area for kids: Splashaway Bay. The aqua play structure is a colorful waterscape specially created to entertain the ship's youngest guests. It features sea-creature water cannons, winding slides, a gigantic tipping bucket and a multiplatform jungle-gym.

     

    Following the Trend in Attracting Families

    Between waterslides for all and the splash park for little ones, Harmony's inclusion of a variety of aquatic attractions is now considered crucial by many within the cruise ship industry. The different slide options are attractive to family members of all ages but are especially critical for entertaining teens who want options where they can spend time with others their own age. It's no surprise, then, that including highly engineered and exciting waterpark options was important to RCL. In fact, being asked to develop the plans for Harmony's family-friendly offerings followed a trend Polin Waterparks has seen coming. Over the last several years, Polin Waterparks has been involved in innovative installations on many other ocean liners. They've been included in the Huffington Post's list of the "5 Craziest Cruise Ship Water Slides."  and many other likewise lstings under the World's best cruise waterparks. Polin Waterparks is feeling so proud for their clients.

  • Polin Waterparks is proud to be recognized as one of the few research and development (R&D) centers in Turkey. Polin is a global leader in the design, engineering, manufacturing and installation of waterparks. Polin Waterparks is the first firm to receive certification as an official R&D center in the its sector.

    Polin Waterparks, which was founded in 1976 and recently celebrated its 40th anniversary, was recently certified as a research and development (R&D) center by the Turkish Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology. This certification, in part, recognizes Polin Waterparks for its qualified innovation expertise.

    On 28 December 2016, Polin Waterparks filled an official application for certification, and the appointment of inspectors took place through 12 January 2017. On 19-23 January 2017, audits were conducted at Polin facilities. Following these inspections on February 21, 2017 in Ankara, at the capital city of Turkey, the company was officially awarded its R&D center certificate. The news of this prestigious recognition was announced on February 22, 2017, on the Turkish Ministry of Science, Industry and Technology's website.

    The certification required Polin Waterparks to meet strict criteria to prove its dedication to R&D. Specifically, some of the minimum conditions required were:

    The certification required Polin Waterparks to meet strict criteria to prove its dedication to R&D. Specifically, some of the minimum conditions required were: 

    • Operate an independent R&D department within its organizational structure
    • Conduct research and development activities
    • Employ experienced R&D designers and engineers dedicated to R&D who possess specific R&D background and competency and are located inside the company's building or campus. (Polin Waterparks employs 46 R&D designers and engineers.)

     Polin Waterparks also has been recognized by the Turkish Exporters Assembly (TIM) as one of only 200 companies in the country that has invested the most significant funding in R&D both in 2015 and in 2016. Polin Waterparks was honored as an export winner by TIM in 2015 and 2016 in the related category.

    The R&D center certificate is earned by domestic brands in different sectors in Turkey. It is considered an important indicator of the investment the recognized institutions have made in the Turkish economy. Polin Waterparks already is recognized as a pioneer in the field of innovative advancement and application of closed-molded manufacturing technology in waterslide development. Today, the firm continues to focus on high-quality design and innovation patents.

    R&D certificate recognizes Polin's expertise 

    A core of Polin Waterpark's R&D strategy is its concentration on financial, customer and process perspectives with particular emphasis on learning, dissemination and innovation. Polin proved its dedication to these aspects of R&D when the company pioneered the advancement and application of light resin transfer molding (LRTM) in waterslide manufacturing. In 2006, it converted 100 percent of its fiberglass production to LRTM, a first in the aquatic-attractions industry. 


    This development raised the bar for the entire waterpark industry. And, since then, Polin has regularly introduced new innovations, including the development of special lighting effects; patterned and transparent composites; sound-integrated components; and unique slide designs. In 2016, Polin Waterparks was honored with the "Leading Edge" award, the industry's most prestigious, by the World Waterpark Association. The King Cobra waterslide, the world's first circular racing waterslide, was launched in 2010 and set a new milestone for the industry. It is the first waterslide with a theme built in its own fiberglass design. It was honored as "Europe's Best Waterslide" in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. In 2013, it was selected by the Composites Manufacturers Association as "The Most Innovative Product in the Entertainment Industry."

    A future of even greater dedication 

    Polin Waterparks performs all of its manufacturing in Turkey in a 35,000-square-meter (376,737-square-feet) state of the art factory specially designed for waterslide production. With experience in designing and installing more than 2,500 waterpark projects in 100 countries, Polin Waterparks is known as the world's largest brand with a wide range of products.

    Ali Cansun, Polin's R&D Director, says achieving its new R&D certification is an honor that underscores the company's efforts to continue reaching for new goals. "It is just one more opportunity for us to showcase our dedication and commitment to the waterpark industry," he says. "This year," he adds, "those goals include an increase in the productivity of our products and services. We also will be focused on even greater innovation and quality for our customers."

    By continuing to invest in R&D, Polin Waterparks aims to successfully lead and serve the industry through technology and innovation in the global arena and to maintain its pioneering identity.

The WWA's Board of Directors selected Polin Waterparks for the exclusive honor based on the company's unique, pioneer and exclusive waterslide manufacturing technologies like Closed Molded Manufacturing Technology, Natural Light Effects, Special Pattern Effects, Patterned Translucency, Slide'n Roll, Translucent Slide Parts and and new design options that allow parks to offer customized theming, story telling, spectator appeal and interactive rider experience.  

     

    Polin Waterparks previously was honored by WWA with the Leading Edge Award in 2014 for being the supplier of waterpark of Cartoon Network Amazone Waterpark, located in Pattaya, Thailand. That award was designed to recognize a park and supplier member who, through their combined efforts, brought a project, product, service or program to fruition, thereby creating industry innovation and leadership. 

     

    The award that Polin Waterparks received this year had a different criteria. WWA defines the honor as: "Awarded to individuals or parks for creativity in the development of new themes, facilities, programs, services or operational concepts in the water attractions industry, and to suppliers who have developed new concepts, products or services to the benefit of park members, their customers or the water attractions industry."

     

    The General Session of the WWA Show took place on Wednesday, October 12, at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in the Great Hall in New Orleans, LA at 11:30 a.m. WWA Chairman of the Board Mark Moore presented the award, which was accepted by Sohret Pakis, Director of Marketing & Communications and Dr. Kubilay Alpdoğan, Director of Sales and Design on behalf of Polin Waterparks team. Kubilay Alpdoğan, Director of Sales and Design, says, "Winning this award is a great honor for Polin Waterparks and everyone on our team."   

     

    This year, Polin Waterparks celebrates its 40th anniversary in the waterslide manufacturing industry. "For the last 20 years,our company has invested a great deal into the industry. Our R&D backbone consists of more than 55 engineers in three sub-departments focusing on composites, hydromechanical systems and product design. This is our main strength. I am proud to announce that we are becoming a R&D center by 2017. " Sohret Pakis, Director of Marketing & Communication says. "We have been the pioneer in resin-transfer molding (RTM) waterslide manufacturing and today we are the sole producer offering its entire line as RTM."

     

    Another innovation that Polin Waterparks introduced was the development of Natural Light Effects RTM technology, followed by Special Pattern Effects, translucent RTM and patterned translucency. "We have continually invested in new technologies and advancements over the years," Pakis explains. "And,last year,we introduced our artistic series of finishes."

     

    The new finishes replicate the appearance of graffiti, wood and metallics, among other designs. "This technology innovation turns waterslides into genuine works of art with both interior and exterior designs - fully embedded into the production of the slides. These innovations are critical to helping our waterpark partners with their story telling and theming. By offering these, we have changed the way the industry is able to deliver an experience to their guests," Pakis says.

     

    Cartoon Network is a perfect example of this new trend in delivering experiences. By what Polin waterparks introduced, the waterslides have progressed from being individual waterpark attractions and into becoming integral parts of a park's story - virtually characters themselves.

     

    "We can't tell you how happy we are to contribute to this amazing industry, we are proud to announce that we are expanding that into a whole line of artistic themes that can fit into a wide range of park themes to enhance the storytelling. We will introduce 4 more designs at IAAPA Attractions Expo this year in Orlando" Sohret Pakis says. "This recognition of our passionate efforts by WWA means a lot. We gratefully send all of our thanks to the WWA board of directors and congratulate all the winners who are passionate about serving and contributing to this amazing industry. Together we are strong and successful. "

  • Space Race
    World’s First Family Bowl Racing Waterslide. Experience the Adrenaline Rush of Competition...

  • Space Race is an advanced waterslide that delivers a uniquely competitive riding experience. Introduces a wholly new opportunity for fun by giving groups of riders a chance to compete as they urge their teammates to be the fastest in crossing the finish line. The slide pits two four-rider family rafts against each other. The rafts enter the bowl from opposite directions at a speed of more than 43 kilometers per hour (27 miles per hour). Separated by a patent-pending divider, the eight riders follow identical helical routes, starting at the perimeter and ending at the center of the bowl. The giant specially designed basin allows the racing teams to see each other as they careen around the bowl, providing incentive for them to lean, bend, crouch and tilt in every way possible to give them an advantage in increasing their speed to gain an edge over their opponents.

    Another distinctive characteristic of the Space Race is its entry tower. Riders begin building their adrenaline rush even before they step into their rafts due to the tower’s design. It allows all riders to see other teams competing against one another as they wait their turn to enter the race.

  • Storm Racer
    A Racing Streamlined-Design, Family Raft, Adrenaline Waterslide. First of Its Kind....

  • The slide's streamlined geometric path is unlike any other previously designed attraction. The result is an expertly engineered waterslide that takes guests by surprise from the start of the ride when they launch from an exceptional height: 24 meters (79 feet), nearly eight stories high. The ride extends along a slide path of 87 meters (285 feet) at a speed of 11 meters (36 feet/second), nearly 40 kilometers (25 miles/hour).

    As rafts shoot to the top of the slope, Polin Waterparks' exclusive Watersplash sensors detect the exact high point reached by the raft. The sensors are connected to a lighting system that displays results on a score board to create a competitive adrenaline rush for the riders. At each level, the lighting system showcases another color and, if the raft makes it to the top, the Watersplash feature activates and water splashes over the riders creating great fun and memories.

    The Storm Racer, however, allow families - or teams - to race one another together.

    The Storm Racer employs a giant central tower from which the slide launches. It promises unique spectator appeal with its tower looming above guests.

    The core feature of the patent pending KING COBRA is its unique configuration that enables 2 double tubes to race through a circular path with twists, turns, and surprises.

  • “Spheres” consist of several smaller shape spheres and tunnel slide parts in between. Many theme applications and coloring go perfect due to the geometrical shape of the spheres.

    In terms of riding experience, the main feature is the rider’s going into the sphere with a drop and doing the fast forth and back movement inside the sphere and leaving the sphere again with a drop.
