Third MVP Award for Vortex


Vortex is pleased to announce its PrecisionRideTM series has been named Most Valuable Products in 2018 by Aquatics International’s readers.

The Aquatics International media network is a trusted source for industry professionals in all fields related to the development, outfitting, and maintenance of aquatic facilities. Every year, Aquatics International Magazine readers vote on the industry’s best new products, with the top 25 receiving the Most Valuable Product award and a feature in the magazine’s June MVP Awards issue.

This year, they selected Vortex’s PrecisionRide™ series of waterslides, which provide unmatched smooth, comfortable rides. Their superior appearance, strength-to-weight ratio, durability, performance, and design flexibility make them a great waterslide solution for a wide variety of aquatic installations.


Stephen Hamelin, President of Vortex International, was proud of this recognition from industry professionals.


“We are always striving to bring innovative products to the market while maintain the highest level of quality and performance. With the PrecisionRide™ series, you really have the best of both worlds, which makes for the ultimate waterslide experience. ”


This marks the third time a Vortex product catches the eye of Aquatics International Magazine readers. In 2015, Vortex received an MVP award for its Watermark product, a cutting-edge interactive centerpiece feature that creates patterns and words by manipulating the flow of water. The Water JourneyTM, a collection of four playscapes inspired by nature’s flowing streams, was similarly recognized in 2016.


“Innovation is a core value at Vortex, and the entire team is delighted to have its efforts validated, particularly by customers and industry peers such as the MVP awards. Such acknowledgments serve as a catalyst to inspire team members to new heights in the development and manufacturing of aquatic structures that provide high play value for families and children of all ages and abilities.”
