Special Applications

New specialty applications are frequently arising for Triodetic Space Frames. Some of these are shown here. Triodetic undertakes substantial research & development in relation to its space frame technology, new applications, & new materials & innovations.

Waterparks / Entertainment

Triodetic has designed & installed the support framing for the newest park attraction (with ProSlide, leader in waterpark slides) in scores of locations from Hurricane zones in Florida, to Seismic zones in California, to heavy Snow belts in Wisconsin, & Internationally as far a-field as Australia's Eastern Gold Coast. The Tornado slide shown is one of several innovative space frame designs that won the 2005 International best new amusement park ride, eclipsing roller-coasters for the very first time. This 70ft high ride is proving to be an anchor attraction for park operators. It offers an endless variety of ride experience for rafters. Northern installations are supplied with a transparent dome enclosure to allow continuous use through the winter months.

Installations include:

  • Six Flags
  • Great Wolf Lodge
  • Dreamworld (Qld, Australia), Wet N Wild (Qld, Australia)
  • Universal Studios

The versatility of the Triodetic Space Frame system makes it perfect for custom architectural structures & displays for Theming, Displays, Exhibits and other building or park features. E-mail us a dimensioned sketch of your concept & we will develop a priced proposal for you.


The Triodetic Bridge offers a unique structure that can be installed in remote locations with minimal labor. Using our patented Tube and Hub connection the bridge is assembled in modules or sections with temporary scaffolding. Without the need for welding or bolting of assemblies and no heavy equipment required for erecting, the bridge can be installed with less effect on the surrounding environment. The light weight construction is another key benefit to using the Triodetic Bridge, less loading on abutment supports reduce the need for extreme footings or piers. Triodetic Bridges can be used as pedestrian or cart bridges on golf courses, span over creeks and rivers on park trails and environmental marsh areas and even be designed for vehicular traffic.
