WE OFFICIALLY EARNED THE TITLE!
FreeStyle Slides, Inc. has always known that we were the tallest in the world, and as of today, we have finally made it official!
Today,, Guinness World Records has officially named us the title holders for the record of Worldâ€™s "Tallest Inflatable Slide.â€ť
Weâ€™ve been so excited about this project for a long time. When Douglas Campbell of Xscape at the City approached us regarding this project, we knew we needed to make it known that our slide was the tallest in the world. The HybridXL (aka the Nova Drop as itâ€™s come to be known) has been thrilling the public of Perth, Australia for several months now as part of the pop-up water park. The notoriety that will come from a Guinness World Record title will be huge for both FreeStyle and our partners atXscape at the City.
The event that took place today drew a large public crowds, but also some of Perthâ€™s most important officials to witness the measuring of our slide. There was food, music, and a ton of excitement - a huge thank you to everyone that made it to Perth for the event!
Our own Adam Lowell, the Global Operations Manager, was there to represent FreeStyle and experience the awarding of the certificate first hand!
When the adjudicator made the final measurements on the slide, and announced that we had come in at a little over 76 feet, we were thrilled and are happy to share the news with you all.
Whenever you hear â€śworldâ€™s tallest slide,â€ť just know that itâ€™s a FreeStyle Slide!
FreeStyle Slides is no stranger to challenges. Having created many of the â€śworldâ€™s firstsâ€ť such as the Inflatable Yacht Slide, Inflatable Wave Pools and Building Evacuation Slides, it has always been in their nature to tackle bigger projects, and recently they did just that, taking on one of their greatest challenges thus far.
In the Fall of 2015, FreeStyle constructed the Hybrid XL, a 23 meter (76 ft) drop slide, for a pop-up water park in Perth Australia called Xscape at the City. This park is unlike any other, and so when it came time to add major attractions, owner/operator Douglas Campbell looked no further than FreeStyle Slides.
FreeStyle knew that this slide would be the tallest of itâ€™s kind, and so decided to make it official, and on Xscape at the City, will be , FreeStyle, in conjunction with attempting to secure the Guinness World Recordsâ„˘ title for Tallest Inflatable Water Slide.â€ť
The Hybrid XL is a virtual fusion of FreeStyleâ€™s land based slide technology and their sea based slide technology. The first ever Hybrid was constructed for the Yacht Club de Monaco which stood over 16m (52 ft) tall and took riders from the top of the yacht club, into the harbor below.
This concept allows FreeStyle the ability to achieve record setting heights as well as leading the way to developing never before seen inflatable products.
Xscape at the City
Due to the custom nature of FreeStyleâ€™s product line and the fact that they focus heavily on new
product development, itâ€™s no secret why entrepreneurs from around the globe are commissioning them to help bring their projects to life. Enter Douglas Campbell of Xscape at the City. Already a proud owner of the FreeStyle product line, Douglas saw the success of the Monaco Yacht Club Hybrid Slide. This in turn inspired him to have FreeStyle develop an even taller version of the Monaco slide for his park, a record setting 23m high Hybrid Slide!
