Coloured water slides

4 posts in this topic

I was on the Gold Coast a couple of weeks ago for about 24 hours, unfortunately it was due to the death of my Grandmother.

Anyway after being picked up from the airport and being driven to Ormeau we went past WNW, Movie World and Dreamworld. It had been 6 years since I had been there so saw some big changes.

One thing that surprised me was the condition of the slides at Whitewater World and how faded they were. I did some research and spoke to a couple of people I know who use plastics outside on a regular basis. Basically what I found is that very hard to UV stabalise coloured plastics.

With the number of applications for coloured plastics in outdoor environments I find it strange that no one has come up with a reliable method of stabilising them.

I've noticed this at WnWS as well and heck that park isn't even a year old! (Is it even six months old?) I've even noticed patch work with tape being done on some of the slides! Ugly gray/silver tape over the coloured plastic... Looks so cheap.
