New Zealand's largest and steepest slide is open at Hanmer Springs

Cequent were engaged to manage the design, consenting, procurement and construction of the new ‘Cascade Pools’ and ‘Boomerango Slide’ within the existing Hanmer Springs thermal pools and spa facility.

The Cascade pools include four new thermal pools and one new sulphur pool which incorporate extensive rock placement and waterfall features to give a truly natural pool environment.

The Boomerango Slide included the design and manufacturing of the fiberglass slide components from Canada and an extension of the existing hydro slide tower to gain the height required to propel riders up the vertical wall section of the slide.

It is the largest and steepest slide in New Zealand.
