A New Way To Do The Wave

Check out this new take on a water park tradition - the Liquid Slide. A new type of technology patented by Ocean Innovations, this new era of wave pool generates waves from the center out, allowing more room for splashin' fun.

The zero depth entry spreads a full 360 degrees, instead of only one side as in a traditional pool. The manufacturer also touts less construction and maintenance costs due to the removal of the traditional side walls and pump area.

It certainly looks like a great idea, I do not believe that one has been built yet, though the company's site says the product was just new for 2009. Hopefully one pops up soon, I'd love to see it in action! With so many parks adding second wave pools this would be a great way to add that needed capacity and also score a pretty unique attraction.
