Aquatic Ride Control

Aquatic Ride Control is an active flume ride control designed to reduce the risk of rider collision and injury by ensuring the safe throughput of riders. 

It is a flume traffic light system which shows red when a flume is in use and green when it is clear. 

Aquatic Ride Control can be further enhanced by incorporating our flume Rider Time Display. Designed to increase the riders enjoyment and experience whilst attracting and retaining more customers it times each rider so when they reach the run out their ride time is displayed on a sealed display unit.  Very popular with children and adults to see who can get the fastest time!
