Water Cube To Become Indoor Water Park

If you watched any of the 2008 Olympics then the building above should look familiar. It's the Water Cube, aka the Beijing National Aquatics Center, the location of the swimming competitions during the games.

It's striking exterior made it a visual symbol of the games, perhaps even more so than the Bird's Nest (the main stadium for the games) and became a popular tourist site even after the games ended.

Well now the building is closing to be repurposed as a multifunctional aquatic center, part of which will be one of the world's premier indoor water parks. Proslide is supplying the many slides and attractions for the park, some of which are a first for the company.

The company's new line of water play structures, RideHouse, will also debut at the new park. Proslide seems ready to take on WhiteWater West's dominance in the water play structure market. The RideHouse combines a play structure with slides, blasters, and tons of other interactive elements.

The new Water Cube park will also feature 14 other slides from the company, including a Tornado and Bullet Bowl slide.
