While preparing for a visit to the water park, people often forget many important things and end-up making a mess of their entire day. Here are some very important tips to prepare you for an entire day at the water park:

Making a list of all the things you need for your day at the water park will help you enjoy your day to the fullest. Familiarizing yourself with the regulations of the water park is the most important thing to do initially before starting with your packing. Read all the rules of the water park on their website/brochure regarding dress code, locker facility, bringing your own food and drink into the park etc. You can always opt for making a list of questions beforehand and then contact their customer care department to help solve your queries. Once you know how to comply, you can pack appropriately and not waste time packing things you aren’t allowed to take to the water park.

Let’s start with the things to carry at the water park.

  1. First and utmost important thing to carry is a good sunscreen lotion. You should also reapply it frequently, after getting in the water and especially after riding body slides.
  2. The next important thing is choosing and packing appropriate swimsuits for everyone. Water parks usually don’t allow guests to go into the water without proper swimwear.Avoid wearing swimsuits with buttons or zippers, as some water parks do notallow wearing them since they can damage certain slides.
  3. If you are visiting the park with infants or toddlers then swim diapers are must to avoid yourself from paying premium at the water park’s gift shop.
  4. Getting into raft rides without goggles can be a very wrong decision. Wearing goggles while riding into these slides gives shield to your eyes from getting splashed. Also, a pair of goggles with a hat is an ideal combination to sway around in a wave pool or while floating in the lazy river.
  5. Wearing flip flops, water socks or plastic shoes for walking around the park should always be considered as the concrete surfaces in the park can become unbearable during the afternoon.
  6. Packing towels for everyone along with the swimsuits will be the best thing to do as you don’t want to bet on the clean towels water parks provide.

Some of the To-do’s are as follows:

  1. Leaving your cellphone at homeunless you want to risk water damage or loss of your cellphone.
  2. Jewelry and other valuables shouldbe left at home as well as you can’t wear them and lockers aren’t always as secure as you might think.
  3. To click pictures with that oceanic view is all what ladies need, but considering taking a camera which is waterproof to the water park would be a wise decision.

While having a wonderful fun time with your squad, safety should always be there at the back of your mind. Unnecessary stunts, diving, pushing each other should be avoided. Young children should wear a lifesaving device at all times.Parents and guardians should always supervise young children around the pools, lazy river, wave pool and all other water attractions. You should always check the safety signage displayed at each ride or direct your questions to the ride operators to ensure complete safety. As you will not be carrying yourcell phone, you should set up a designated meeting spot when you arrive in case anyone gets lost. Drinking plenty of water at intervals is always recommended to prevent you from sun strokes and unnecessary exhaustion from screamingaloud in all the thrilling slides. Also, fried and oily foods before leaving for the water park should be avoidedas you are expected to perform many physical activities at the park. During the lunch time too, you should avoid eating heavy meals. You should go light on the food you consume to enjoy every ride and attractions.

Many unexpected scenarios can occur during your visit to the park. Also,many rides will have an age and/or height requirement so don’t get upset and spoil your mood. Most of the humongous slides at the water park will expect you to climb stairs, so be prepared for that.

These tips will keep you well prepared for your day at water park but the most important tip is that you should have a great time!

Become an Entrepreneur: Start your own water park

Entrepreneurs are the ones who think out of the box. They are the ones who identify the existing needs of the masses and capitalize on the available resources to come up with a business model. It can rightly be stated that these elite individuals, when thrown off a cliff, will come down with an idea to fly on their way down to avoid crash landing. Being an entrepreneur is a high-risk, high-reward position. It’s full of stressful situations. But it also offers rewards and a sense of accomplishment. It’s not as hard as it seems as long as you have some diligence, patience and of course, a good idea. You will be your own boss sooner than you think!

With the emergence of new technologies, one can easily push barriers by simply coming up with brilliant ideas that can be embraced by the masses. One such enhancement can be done in the attractions sector. Water parks with the age old slides and play structures are pretty common. There is a huge scope of coming up with a themed water park or an amusement park that can break the norm of simply being one amongst the thousands. Utilizing the technology to come up with ground breaking designs of water slides and play structures can be one of the missing pieces of the puzzle; something that can act as a breath of fresh air.

While the idea might sound exciting, it does come with a lot of ground work. Here are a few guidelines that can help you in successfully setting up a water park.

Step 1: Identifying the location

The park can either be in the city or in the outskirts. The location should be such that it’s easily accessible from major city areas and can be reached without any hassles. If the park is located in the outskirts, then the ease of transportation to the location should be checked since it often has huge impact on the footfalls.

Step 2: Deciding on the water park size

This step is directly proportional to the investment that one is willing to spend. Ideally a small water park can be set up in 0.5 acre to 2 acre, medium water park in 2-5 acre land whereas a large water park will require anywhere above 5 acres of land.

Step 3: Land acquisition

This step involves checking the provisions for setting up a water park in that particular area. You also need to check if a provision can be made for parking as most visitors will be travelling to the park in their own vehicle. One also needs to decide on whether they wish to have restaurants in the waterpark since even they have certain legal requirements to be followed.

While the above steps cover the basic requirements, it is also advisable to clear all the legal formalities before approaching any water slide manufacturers.

We hope the above idea did ring a bell for the ones who are looking for an opportunity to come up with a business of their own. Setting up a water park does require huge investments; but it also comes with high profits.

As substantial income comes from the entertainment and leisure activities, amusement industry contributes the major chunk. It helps draw cash for the community, as it also generates overnight stays along with patronage for restaurants, retail stores, gas stations, etc. It has been observed that people residing in the nearby districts visit state capital only for a visit to temporary fairs. Therefore, an Amusement & Water Park provide an additional attraction to the domestic tourists visiting that particular state.

Apart from above, amusement industry is also responsible for increasing the cultural unity. Amusement Parks as well as water parks from around the world help in uniting culturally diverse communities together for celebration and family fun. It is impossible to think of an alternative for amusement parks and water parks for bringing people together in such large volumes.

Water Parks are known to provide leisure opportunities for one and all regardless of their age, ability or income level. Most of the children in the country are confined to a theoretical academic curriculum which tends to be stereo-typical, monotonous and less receptive. When the education is coupled with entertainment, it brings out the desired results. By visiting the nearby Amusement & Water Park; school children learn to work and enjoy in groups which inculcates team spirit in them. They are taught discipline, patience and tolerance. As during their visit to park they have to wait for their turn, enjoy even while striking against each other and tolerate any discomfort during the visit. That is the reason why a visit to Amusement & Water Park has become a part of school curriculum.

These perks of being an attractions player, fosters the idea of becoming one in anyone and everyone. Along with developing tourism demand at various destinations and creating many positive impacts, the attractions industry brings in a great opportunity from a business point of view as well.

Leading waterparks expert, Arihant Water Park Equipment, has supplied a range of thrill waterslides to Benidorms’ new Magic Robin Hood Sport, Water Park & Medieval Lodge Resort.

Themed on the legendary hero from Sherwood Forest, the 100,000-square-metre resort has been developed by the hotel chain Magic Costa Blanca.

An amalgamation of two existing facilities, it combines the medieval-themed Magic Aqua Excalibur with the neighbouring La Marina sports centre.

Executive Vice President of Magic Costa Blanca, Javier García, said the intention was to ‘design a unique experience of immersion in the legend of the popular character, Robin Hood, configuring a resort with a differentiated and state-of-the-art concept.’

To create the resort’s waterpark, the team collaborated with India’s Arihant Water Park Equipment. Arihant proposed an array of thrill slides to complement the Robin Hood theming and deliver a wide range of ride experiences. The final selection includes a pendulum slide, body bowl slide, crazy cruise wavy slide and high thrill float, alongside a number of family slides.

The resort features a spectacular weekend nighttime show involving over 20 actors that brings the legend of Robin Hood to life. A dozen horses star in the show and have been trained to re-enact medieval games, jousts and tournaments. The whole experience is supported by a team of technical experts and features stunning cinematic special effects.

Designed by Ignacio Brieva, it is performed in 700-square-metre space where the action moves between Nottingham Castle and the Sherwood Forest.

Founded in 1978, Arihant Water Park Equipment has been involved in hundreds of water parks projects around the world. Recent projects include Bulgaria’s biggest water park Neptune, Sun Group’s Typhoon Water Park in Vietnam, Jukupark Turku, Finland and Aquashow in Portugal.

Maintaining your water parks

Screenshot_2Today most of the water park owners make it a point that their parks are well equipped with the latest slides and play structures that are introduced in the market. Often park owners see the installation procedure as the important part. But what they really should focus on is the maintenance of these exciting slides which can invariantly increase their return on investment and continue to reward them handsomely if done right.

Proper maintenance of your water park is the most vital element to extend the life of your water park equipments. Keeping a check of the slide maintenance with appropriate planning can prevent your equipments from losing their luster and patrons over time. Irregular maintenance of your water park slides can cause severe damages to it and over time can decrease the lifespan of your equipment and hamper the safety of your guests.

 

The best way to keep your slide looking great for years is to start protecting it from day one. Put together a schedule which includes details of ordering parts, organizing labor and planning out important dates for checks. This will allow you to stay organized and ensure that you don’t miss out on anything.

The maintenance of your water park equipments ensures that:

  • There is no leakage in the slides or equipment.
  • The maintenance also keeps the smoothening of the joint gaps
  • Cleanliness of the surface: When you don’t clean the pool, water slides or any equipment for a month, slime gets developed on the surface of the equipments which makes it a risk-prone factor for your water park. Maintenance helps to keep the surface of your slides and equipments clean, which reduces the chance of anyone accidently slipping and having a fall

 

The visitors who come to your water park are always looking for leisure, clean and comfortable environment, where they can have a good time with their families without any hassles. No or irregular maintenance at your water park makes it look less organized and end up directing your visitors towards the competitors. To help avoid such a thing from happening, following maintenance points should be focused on to increase the life expectancy of the slides to ensure that your water park is 100% operational –

Steps to be followed on Daily basis:

  1. Check the slide joints for any dirt. Apply joint filling substance if required before letting water into the slides
  2. Check the sliding surfaces for any cracks or elements which would disrupt the ride

Weekly checks:

  1. Clean the strainers which are installed at the entrance of the pump
  2. Control the surface levels, water leakage and the metal construction as the nuts and bolts can loosen by the result of the dynamic loads

Monthly

  1. Clean the calcification on the riding surfaces
  2. Change the rusty nuts and bolts if any. Control the painted metal construction (for the painted metals)

Annually

  1. All the fiberglass components to be checked and cleaned from the dirt, scaling etc
  2. Conduct trials with experienced lifeguards before opening the park to visitors and check for any faults before opening for new season.

We hope that the above mentioned steps come in handy next time when you go about cleaning the slides and play structures. If you have questions about any specific slide or a play structure, kindly mention them in the comments section or write us at infun@arihant.com and we will be happy to help.
