Tripadvisor Fans Rank Russia's H20 Waterpark Among Europe's Top 10


2016 Travelers' Choice rating identifies park - which features Polin attractions - as a fan favorite.

A "fantastic place for children and your inner child alike" was the type of comment of guests at H20 Aquapark in Roston-on-Don, Russia, that helped propel the facility to top-10 status in Europe - as well as No. 1 status in Russia.

The designation came from fans who posted reviews on the popular TripAdvisor website and was based on an algorithm that counts the quantity and quality of TripAdvisor user's feedback. The ratings' creators also considered guests' assessment of waterparks from around the world in determining which waterparks made the list.

H20's investment in attractions using the latest design, engineering and manufacturing technology was likely one reason for guests' enthusiasm. Polin Waterparks (Turkey) manufactured and supplied all the park's waterslides, which feature its Resin Transfer Molding (RTM) technology. This exclusive manufacturing process gives Polin products a striking appearance with both shiny interiors and exteriors. Polin's high-tech engineers' development of additional special effects - the company's unique Natural Light and Special Pattern Effects - contribute to its attractions' exceptionally attractive waterslides. Plus, the rides are all engineeried to offer maximum rider experience.  

Multiple awards for the young facility

H20 Indoor Aquapark ranked as No. 7 on the list of top-25 favorite waterparks in Europe and No. 1 in Russia - the first time a Russian facility has made the list. Being named to TripAdvisors' list is not the first time the park has received accolades, however. It also was honored with a Golden Pony Award in 2014 in an international competition of amusement industry operators. That award is given out by Games & Parks Industry magazine. 

H20 Indoor Aquapark opened less than a year before earning that award. Part of the Horizon Megacenter Mall (also known as the Gorizont), the largest mall in Southern Russia, the waterpark covers more than 24,000 square meters (78,740 square feet). More than 6,000 square meters (64,583 square feet) are devoted to the waterpark.

In addition to the waterslides, the mall offers a variety of other amenities, including a multiplex cinema, a family entertainment complex, a bowling alley and a fitness center. Park owners invested 1.393 billion rubles (US$45 million) into building the all-season complex. It accommodates as many as 2,500 people a day and employs 160 people.
