The Pacific Islands Club Saipan opened to the public yesterday new additions to its waterpark—three new waterslide—after over a year of construction.
The San Antonio resort cut the ribbon to the new slides, with PIC staff demonstrating the mechanics of the waterslides while guests watched and mingled.
According to Micronesia Resort Inc. CEO and president Matthew Park, it took them a year and a half to conceptualize and build the new attractions.
Park said this was the result of guest surveys, with many guests asking for waterslides. He said they also wanted something dynamic and exciting to keep up with the competition. He pointed out that PIC, when compared to other resorts with waterslides, seem sedate and calm, hence the need to amp up the excitement at the resort.
According to Gloria Cavanagh, Pacific Islands Club Saipan general manager, the slides have been long awaited and it is exciting for her and the PIC staff that the public can finally use it.
“The staff has been doing the testing in the last couple of days and they’ve just been having so much fun,” she said.
The three-part waterslide cost about $3.5 million to build.
