Amusement parks use fiber-reinforced plastic (FRP) and other composite materials for many applications, such as slides, structures and trains, due to the reliability, strength, low maintenance, affordability and design flexibility that composites provide. Waterparks use composite materials for water pipes and storage tanks.
