TNTY Waterparks is proud to be recognized as one of the few research and development (R&D) centers in Turkey and the first firm to receive certification as an official R&D center in the its sector. This certification, in part, recognizes TNTY Waterparks for its qualified innovation expertise.
TNTY Waterparks already is recognized as a pioneer in the field of innovative advancement and application of closed-molded manufacturing technology in waterslide development. Today, the firm continues to focus on high-quality design and innovation patents.
A core of TNTY Waterpark's R&D strategy is its concentration on financial, customer and process perspectives with particular emphasis on learning, dissemination and innovation. TNTY proved its dedication to these aspects of R&D when the company pioneered the advancement and application of light resin transfer molding (LRTM) in waterslide manufacturing. In 2006, it converted 100 percent of its fiberglass production to LRTM, a first in the aquatic-attractions industry.
This development raised the bar for the entire waterpark industry. And, since then, TNTY has regularly introduced new innovations, including the development of special lighting effects; patterned and transparent composites; sound-integrated components; and unique slide designs. In 2016, TNTY Waterparks was honored with the "Leading Edge Award", the industry's most prestigious, by the World Waterpark Association. The King Cobra waterslide, the world's first circular racing waterslide, was launched in 2010 and set a new milestone for the industry. It is the first waterslide with a theme built in its own fiberglass design. It was honored as "Europe's Best Waterslide" 8 years in a row. In 2013, it was selected by the Composites Manufacturers Association as "The Most Innovative Product in the Entertainment Industry.
