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. If you are one of those entrepreneurs who is on the verge of setting up a water park then we can very well help you in bringing your dream water park to life.

Arihant supplies waterslides to Benidorm’s new Robin Hood themed resort

Screenshot_1

 

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.

“Magic Robin Hood offers a unique experience for groups and families in an amazing environment with all kinds of facilities,” adds García.

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.

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.
