    As you stand at the base of No Boundaries™, the giant structure towers 75-feet high above you. It is truly an iconic attraction offering high thrill zip lining and challenging climbing activities for guests of all ages and skill levels. No Boundaries is unique to the market, expertly integrating different ways to play within one attraction, creating an unforgettable, never-before-seen experience. With both harnessed and unharnessed activities, weaving obstacle courses with uphill climbs, downward descents, and a winding aerial zip coaster this impressive complex presents a one-of-a-kind experience for the entire family.

    To accommodate all of the different elements which No Boundaries incorporate would normally take up substantial square feet, so the WhiteWater team had to reimagine the space by building up to create this enormous attraction and fit them all in within a condensed footprint of 860 m² to 2000 m². The team created a core interior which climbs four storeys high and houses a central area where parents can watch, film, or encourage bravery. The 18 columns that radiate from the core support secondary structures such as a ropes course, elevators drops, and wave climb. 

    “We’ve really packed this attraction with features,” says Mark Weston, Designer and Product Manager of No Boundaries. “I’m extremely proud that we’ve created, for the first time, parallel play in one structure where siblings of different ages can race across the attraction in tandem; the older enjoying the high thrill harnessed play while the younger test their limits with unharnessed challenges. It is a mini-family adventure park all on its own!”

    WhiteWater has invested years in innovating this attraction so that it delivers both operations efficiency and an amazing guest experience. They say that the devil is in the detail and there are many details which are firsts with No Boundaries. Efficiently operated, this attraction is practically self-running; WhiteWater’s automated and patented safety technology allows guests to explore the structure with limited supervision. Their continuous harness clip allows guests to zip from one platform to another without ever having to unhook. This technology will shorten queues and allow for a higher capacity throughput.

    When designing a new attraction, especially one as innovative as No Boundaries safety is a critical design and testing consideration and this required extensive research, testing, and engineering time. The result is that No Boundaries is compliant with ASTM International and the China State Construction International Holdings (CSCI) codes. Each design is evaluated using carefully calibrated simulations followed by meticulous testing and fine-tuning to get the experience optimal and safety-assured. Environmental conditions also vary across geographies, and that becomes a consideration in design for operations and maintenance. “We’ve invested in creating a product which is designed to last even in the most challenging environments,” said Weston. “It is the quality of the design and build which sets new attractions like No Boundaries apart and which makes our clients’ investments last and keep delivering guest satisfaction and a healthy return on investment.”

  • Slideboarding
    Award-winning gaming fun...

  • The recipient of TEA’s Thea Award of Outstanding Achievement, Slideboarding is the reimagining of waterslides, by adding an interactive ‘video game’ experience to new or even existing rides.

    WhiteWater have gamified the waterslide; moving the guest from a passive ride experience to an interactive and engaging one.

    Riders step up to the kiosk, place the unique ride vehicle, appropriately called the Slideboard, into the cradle to sync the board to their account; here they can create their username, pick the level they want to play from 1-60, and even pick from one of 9 music genres to listen to while playing the game.

    As riders race down the Slideboarding path they press the coloured buttons on their vehicle’s handles while passing under the corresponding coloured targets. If they’ve timed it just right, their handles will vibrate to let them know that they’ve scored points.

  • Mat Blaster
    The evolution of mat racing...

  • The winner of last year’s IAAPA Brass Ring Award for Best New Product, Mat Blaster combines the fun of mat racing with the thrill of an uphill water coaster, the inspiration for which came from riding a Master Blaster with a foam mat. On the initial drop, riders plunge headfirst down a 4 meter (13 feet) drop into a valley before climbing two hills that lead into a 360-degree Whizzard loop, making it a truly unique ride experience.

    The world’s first Mat Blaster has been in operation since June 2016 at Yinji Xinmi Waterpark, China’s largest waterpark. Its compact layout, scalable size, and reduced tower costs may have made it a hit with park operators, but it’s the ride’s easy accessibility, thrilling lifts and dips, and 360-degree loop that have made it a ‘must-do’ attraction for guests.

  • Fusion Fortress
    The world’s largest AquaPlay...

  • The Fusion Fortress, is a mini waterpark in a single attraction. Towering five stories high and incorporating 10 slides, guests can enjoy a full range of sliding experiences from body slides to dual-raft rides, including WhiteWater’s Boomerango and Super Bowl. And as with all AquaPlay’s, there are plenty of elements to keep guests playing for hours.
