Case Study: Wet N Wild
Wet ‘n’ Wild are globally known water parks with its wide assortment of swimming pools and water slides. The Wet ‘n’ Wild parks in Las Vegas and Hawaii draw hundreds of thousands of guests each and every year.
Located in very hard water areas, the water slides in both the Hawaii and Las Vegas locations were suffering from severe limescale buildup on the slides. The appearance and performance of the slides were hindered by the rock hard white substances where the water flows. Riders were slowed down by the scale buildup on the fiberglass slides. The water flow coming out of small ¼” tubing was getting restricted. The rides had to be shut down completely and wet-sanded and buffed to remove the limescale.
Multiple SB-450s and SB-650s have been installed on the two parks, covering virtually all their slides in the parks.
Hawaii units were installed, August 8, 2013 and the Las Vegas units were installed on June 15, 2014 and additional ones on August 20, 2014.
The limescale issues have totally stopped. The savings in labor, chemicals and reduced downtime is substantial.
