Rainbow Springs Log Flume

Projects

The Big Splash flume ride was a $10m investment for Rainbow Springs and takes up to 500 people per hour on a gentle boat ride, culminating in an adrenalin-pumping 12m water slide drop.  Jensen Steel completed the New Zealand components of the steel manufacturing for Arrow International. This included tanks, flume and lifts.

The project went beyond Jensen’s traditional areas of work to include production of some mechanical working parts. Plans for the ride were originally drawn to European standards and were converted to New Zealand Standards by the consultant engineers in conjunction with Jensen Steel. Steelwork challenges included complex tank work detail to cater for the predominance of curves in the design and working in a forest environment rather than in the clear space of the average new build or orderliness of a renovation site.
