SANAD Capital today unveiled its partnership with WhiteWater – the world’s original waterpark and attractions company – and released details of the planned adventure development, which will include Australia’s biggest wave pool, with waves up to 9ft high.Commenting on the released plans Bradley P. Sutherland, CEO of SANAD Capital, tells us the new development will include a world-class water park with considerable entertainment value, the likes of which Australia has never seen before.

WhiteWater will be responsible for most of the water elements and features, especially the planning and engineering of the waterpark rides, given its credentials as the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of innovative waterpark products,” says Sutherland. The new announcement unveiling the features has been highly anticipated and details released include:
Australia’s biggest wave pool generating 9ft-high waves

The park will boast the most iconic rides in the waterpark industry, which are set to hit Aussie shores for the first time, including The ABYSS, CONSTRICTOR and BOOMERANGO MANTA
“This waterpark has been designed to provide a complete family experience with features for every age group. The plans contain a dedicated area for tots, where kids from four to eight can make a splash, thrills for teens with the AquaLoop, as well as raft rides for the whole family to enjoy together.. The Sunshine Coast is seeing some game-changing developments, and we wanted to add to that with this project,” adds Sutherland.
