The Fishpipe is the world's first Rotating Barrel Ride -- a new and unique type of water ride where you slide further than the longest water-slide in the world! The FishPipe is now debuting in Hawaii!
Fishpipe HawaiiUp to 3 riders at a time enter into the Fishpipe barrel; we add 75 litres (20 gallons) of water and then spin the barrel at up to 45 revolutions per minute (although we can slow it right down for the kids and those with nervous dispositions.) The water makes it so slippery inside that riders don't get spun around, but stay sliding in the water in the bottom of the barrel.
Solo riders can try to run inside, slide, or even try surfing on their feet. With 2 or 3 riders inside they slip and slide together -- frontwards, backwards, or sideways.
The Fishpipe consists of a steel frame suspending an inflatable barrel. The Barrel is rotated in place at up to 45 rpm by an electric motor and some clever electronics. Our water system removes water from the barrel after each ride, cleans and filters it ready to pump in fresh water for the next ride.
