Seven Peaks (http://www.sevenpeaks.com), a leader in family entertainment and recreation, announced that it has greatly enhanced the experience of its three most thrilling slides at its Provo Waterpark.
The three slides—Free Fall, Jagged Edge, and Sky Breaker—have been modified to allow riders to travel down face first on their stomachs using mats. The purpose of the enhancements was to make the slides more fun, drawing more people to them, and allowing for an alternative riding style for those who don't like going down on their backs.
“We came up with the idea for these front-facing slide modifications based on the tremendous popularity of the “Thunder Gorge” and “Lightning Falls” speed slides at our Seven Peaks Waterpark Salt Lake location,” said Gary Brinton, CEO of Seven Peaks. “The modifications have been a major undertaking, and now with the revamp of these three slides, we anticipate they will be among the fastest in the country."
The three speed slides originate from the highest level of the main slide tower at Seven Peaks Waterpark Provo. The modifications included lengthening out the run, which is the shallow water channel at the end of the ride that slows riders down, and increasing the height of the sides of each slide. The changes allow riders to safely travel face first on mats like those used on “Avalanche,” the 8-lane racer slide introduced to Provo last year.
Before the changes to the three speed slides, people were able to ride down feet first on their backs with their legs crossed and hands across their chests.
“One thing our customers can always count on each year is continual enhancement to our many venues,” added Brinton. “We remain committed to offering the highest quality family-oriented fun to the community.”
Seven Peaks Waterpark Provo is part of the company’s Pass of all Passes, which guests can purchase to get unlimited access to all Seven Peaks venues plus entrance to popular sports and recreation venues, such as soccer, baseball and racing, for one full year from the date of purchase.
