One version or another of the FlowRider Mobile has been shipped and deployed all around the world for many different reasons for many, many years now. Some examples of places and events are as follows:
Canadian National Expo – an entire summer of patron fun and professional flowboarding expositions
Downtown Toronto – Product Launch for a Samsung waterproof phone
US Swim Trials in Omaha, NE – Because they wanted something super fun and water-based in the expo area. All sessions over the 2-week activation sold out 2 weeks before the start of the event.
SxSW in Austin, TX – Promotion of the 2nd season of TNT Network’s Animal Kingdom (the show is based in California and a bunch of the characters surf)
Typhoon Texas Waterpark – proof of concept for an entire summer. Look what some people said:
This type of attraction can fit into a theme of a particular event or it can just be the coolest amenity or attraction among other things to do/see/eat of a larger activation. And, if you just want it for a company event or a birthday bash, that’s not a problem…relatively deep-ish pockets are necessary regardless.
