Whitewater Attractions modernizes 30 year old water ride

Out of any ride system in a theme park, flume rides have always been my favorite. Maybe it’s the fascination of rushing water or how the weight of the boat changes the ride ever so slightly, but they never disappoint. Recently, Whitewater Attractions freshened up a 30-year-old flume ride in Everland Theme Park located in Yongin, South Korea and gave it new life.

Thunder Falls, a “Super Flume,” is Whitewater Attractions biggest project to date with more unique elements than any other water ride they have designed.


For starters, they took their old ride vehicles and converted them into eight-passenger boats, which doubles the capacity of the predecessor allowing 1,400 riders per hour.

In addition, they have added a 180-degree turntables that allow boats to travel forwards, backwards and then forwards again down the big drop.

“We’ve packed a huge number of fun features into the 485-meter-long ride,” commented Mark Miller, Flume Ride Specialist, WhiteWater Attractions. “The full 180 direction changes combined with varying degrees of drops, from 5 meters up to a whopping 20 meters, creates an experience that is full of surprises. This Super Flume will have guests lining up again and again.”
