Water play structures are the best way to keep kids occupied for hours. Depending upon the number of platforms, kids will be busy discovering the various areas of the themed play structures. Play structures are equipped with fun rides that are not only fun but are also the easiest to get on to for kids, which encourages them to have a jolly good time.

The play areas usually are designed around a particular theme and have miniatures and structures which enhance the fun quotient of the park. The water play structures can be as small a 2-platform structure or can go up to being a 21 platform structure where the platforms act as connectors in the structure. The water activity play structures are coupled with components like water curtains, sprinklers, inverted umbrellas and fountains, sprinklers and water cannons to double the excitement among kids of all ages.

How to attract visitors to your water park

We at Arihant Water Park Equipment believe that all water parks are capable of drawing business. As they say devil lies in the details, there are these minute dots that one needs to join which are often ignored or over looked. One way of doing it is by renovating the water slides, increasing the number of attractions or bringing new life to the installed attractions to make them more appealing to the users and visitors of your park.There is infinite choice for broadening or modifying your water park in order to meet the expectations of the visitors.

  1. Renovating your water park:

For renovating a water park, there are many options which can be considered depending on the needs of your water park. The most important need is the current demand of the installed attractions and water slides. If your current attractions have not brought people to your park and are under-used, they should be modified or even substituted for attractions with more appeal. If, on the contrary, your attractions generate long lines then you should update or add similar attractions. If you don’t want to spend money on getting the newest attraction for your park and the demand is well serviced by the current set of rides, maybe you would like to update them with theming, new colors, a new sign or you could even create a zone of attractions with the same concept or theme which will attract new users to the same rides.

  1. Offers and discounts:

It is always better to give out discounts or club packages which otherwise would be difficult to arrange for a visitor if done individually. Offering student discount always works. All they need to do is carry a valid college or school identity card and avail handsome discounts. You can further offer visitors cash back if they book using wallet services. This ensures quicker and easier booking procedure which even the guests prefer.

  1. Arranging for the transport:

Water Parks are often setup at the outskirts of the main city mostly due to the scarcity of space required to build one. This causes transportation problems which makes it difficult for the ones who do not have their own vehicle to reach the destination. This is one of the biggest issues that water park owners face these days. A simple solution would be to arrange for some sort of transportation such as a bus that will help visitors comfortably reach the water park. Also if your water park is on an island or requires an entire day of travelling just to reach there, it is best to make arrangements for the visitors to stay in a hotel as returning back on the same day would be exhausting.

  1. Having slides that attract all age groups.

Ensure that you have something for all age groups. Like a play structure and kiddie slides for kids, thrill slides for youth, family slides which families can enjoy together, wave pool where senior citizens can relax etc.

We hope the above pointers helped you in reinventing your strategy to increase walk-ins to your water park. And speaking of iconic slides, Arihant Water Park Equipment had the privilege of installing one of the highlights of Aquamagica, the Aqua Funnel. Make sure you look it up over the internet to check out this massive structure.

World’s craziest water slides

When it comes to water slides, water park lovers are always expecting something extraordinary waiting for them, something that they will be talking about for a long time afterwards. A 120 ft drop at 60 km/h is more like music to their ears and this is the reason why engineers of today keep pushing their creative boundaries to come up with an ultimate daredevil of a slide; the one that will bring the screams out of them. As a result, today’s water slides are not just plain water slides, they are well engineered pieces of art specially designed to give the visitors a one of a kind experience.

From Brazil all the way to Dubai, these are the tallest, sharpest and the craziest water slides in the world.

  1. The Verrückt — Schlitterbahn, Kansas City

The slide stands at an intimidating 168ft and 7inches. It has been recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the tallest water slide in the world. Here is what the slide actually looks like.

  1. The Scorpion’s Tail — Noah’s Ark Waterpark, Wisconsin

This slide is almost as deadly as it sounds. It hardly takes 5-7 seconds to complete. The idea of the slide lies in the floor beneath it. In the safety of the clear capsule, the floor vanishes and the drop initiates; and it is after this drop that the actual adventure begins.

  1. Twister and Speedy — Sonnetherme Lutzmannsburg Thermal Spa, Austria

Can’t get enough of the adrenaline rush, craving for more, then this ride is for you. Speedy features a descent of 460ft at a breakneck speed, while Twister which is a thrilling flume whichsprawls at a staggering 660ft drop.

History of Water Slides

History textbooks have been store houses of information about some of the most important events in the history of mankind – wars, politics, immigration events, etc. But when it comes to trivia, there is hardly any place that you could learn about some equally important facts. The History of Water Slides, for example, has not been mentioned in any textbooks. No book has ever mentioned how water slides came into existence and became an important part of our lives. We are sure each and every one of us has experienced the thrill of being on a water slide, whether it is an amusement park, a water park or simply an inflatable water slide placed in our back yard.

So, we did a bit of digging around and tried to track down some of the earliest examples of one of the most exciting ingredients of amusement parks today, the mighty water slide. We did manage to find some early examples of mankind’s commitment towards having a good time.

One of the first documented water slides came from New Zealand as a part of the 1906 International Exhibition. The “Wonderland” area of the exhibition included different types of rides and entertainment experiences which was more like a mini-amusement park. It was here that “water chute” was displayed. Even back then people knew a cool thing when they saw it. Soon after the exhibition, “Wonderland” closed down; the water chute slide was sold to a business where it went on for a few years in Wellington, New Zealand. But eventually it was dismantled.

The second instance was of Herbert Sellner. Herbert Sellner lived in Faribault, Minnesota. He started with his designing career first by making furniture, later moved on to making toys for children and then finally, most famously, the Water-Toboggan Slide. Built in 1923, the slide featured a wooden sled that people sat on and rode down an incline into a lake. Much like in New Zealand, this sled did not sink but shot off across the water for distances up to 100 feet, according to the U.S. Patent Services site.

This idea was quickly adapted into different versions of same water slide which were placed at swimming pools, lakes and beaches. This had all the making of what one would rightly call as a staple of the amusement parks. Herbert Sellner didn’t stop there, and went on to design the Tilt-a-Whirl slide which debuted at the Minnesota State Fair in 1927.

By this time the market was open for having all kinds of water slides and this paved way for Sea World which was founded in 1964 by George Millay in San Diego and later similar parks were opened in Orlando and Ohio. He later saw the potential of parks which were built around water attractions and went on to open what is considered to be the first water park, Wet n’ Wild in Orlando, according to Waterpark.com. The park became so popular that he later opened more in the United States, Mexico and Brazil. From the view point of the history of water slides, this was a by far the most important step.

Speaking of Wet n’ Wild, Arihant Water Park Equipment has had the privilege of working with the Wet n’ Wild in Brazil on a few water slides. It truly was a proud moment for our entire team to partner with the water park that has played such a vital role in shaping the attractions industry of today. Catch the glimpse of our work for Wet n’ Wild in Brazil here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xz3p16YycrU

So, this was how water slides became an integral part of the attractions industry and more importantly an outlet for having a jolly good time for people of all ages.
