Sanad recruits WhiteWater West for multi-million dollar active lifestyle attraction in Australia
POSTED 11 Oct 2016 . BY Tom Anstey
The lifestyle destination combines a waterpark with active lifestyle entertainment
Sanad Capital, the investment group planning a AU$400m (US$302m, €271m, £245.6m) “active lifestyle” destination in Queensland, Australia, has recruited the services of WhiteWater West to develop the attraction’s waterpark.

Sanad – the Australian offshoot of Dubai-based investment firm Najibi Group – is financing the “never-before seen in Australia” project, which will feature extreme water facilities and an Olympic-standard training centre.

The development will include a number of records and first, including Australia’s largest wave pool generating 9ft (2.7m) waves; the world's largest interactive aqua play structure, able to accommodate 2,000 people at any one time; and the first slide boarding area in Southeast Asia. In addition the attraction will include a number of WhiteWater’s iconic rides, including the Abyss, Constrictor and Boomerango Manta slides.

The mixed-use project will also have a 4-star hotel, conference and exhibition centre, restaurants and retail elements.

The development is expected to officially break ground in 2017, with further details to be released later in the year. Los Angeles-based Thinkwell Group have been named lead consultant on the Sunshine coast project, which is expected to inject AU$30m (US$22m, €20m, £16.5m) into the local economy each year.
