New Super Flume for Finland's PowerPark
BY Pete Hayman



Interlink has confirmed it has secured a contract for the design, manufacture and installation of a new Super Flume ride for PowerPark, an amusement park located in Alahärmä, Finland.

It is one of a number of deals secured by the company this year and will lead to the creation of a new 400m (1,312ft)-long ride at the park, which features two lifts and two drops.

The Super Flume ride will incorporate a 12m (39ft)-long station section and is to utilise nine six-seater boats that will provide a capacity of 600 passengers every hour.

Located in a new area of PowerPark and integrated into an existing bridge structure, the theme of the ride is based on the Second World War film, Bridge Over The River Kwai.

Interlink managing director John Hudd said: "It's been an interesting project to work on and to design and I'm sure it will be a very popular addition to the park when it opens."
