Kids and families flock to first install of Waterplay's new slide activity centre

Posted by waterplayAdmin on August 30, 2011

Kelowna, B.C., – Having recently launched their new slide activity centres in May, Waterplay Solutions Corp is currently enjoying celebration and community embracement for their first install at Belton Missouri’s Outdoor Waterpark.

Ideal for the beach entry wading pool, the slide at Belton was part of a $1.7 million renovation that took a dilapidated outdoor community pool from a neglected mainstay to a community waterpark including 2 large-scale slides, a lazy river, a floating obstacle course, and Waterplay’s SL100 slide activity centre. “We have experienced huge buy-in from the community with max capacity being reached on opening day and over 10,000 attendees coming through the facility since June” explained Supervisor Tiffany Parks “and with all the interactive water attractions on the slide, it has been a remarkable attraction for kids of all ages.” Parks noted how the slide brings families in to play together “I absolutely love seeing parents being part of the play and families interacting together around the structure; instead of parents just sending their kids off to play, they are all enjoying it together.”

Product Manager Cory Forrest said the project was a perfect choice for the company’s first installation “the aquatic designer, contractors and people at Belton’s parks and recreation department were amazing to work with; they had great vision and consistently strived for a win-win.” The setting was also well-suited for the new slides “the modular design of our slides was a perfect fit with this renovation project: being surrounded by a wading pool encourages kids to use the interactive features like the water cannons and dumping buckets to engage with those playing in the water around them.”

Despite being on the market for only a few months, Waterplay’s new slide activity centres are already in big demand; 3 new projects are currently underway and many others are being included in future project plans throughout the globe. The slides are ideal for new or renovated aquatic play pools and can also be incorporated into traditional aquatic play pads.
