The 45-foot high wood slide tower that supported two body slides, one tube ride and one raft ride was showing significant signs of decay was in need of total replacement.
Over the course of a two-year period, Friede & Associates was asked to work with two different clients in the Wisconsin Dells who were experiencing the same problem. Both waterpark clients had 45-foot, wooden slide towers that were showing significant signs of deterioration. They both needed immediate solutions that would result in replacement of the towers. But that’s where the similarities end.
