Fifth MVP Award for Vortex


Vortex is pleased to announce its Astra collection has been named to the Most Valuable Products in 2021 by the readers of Aquatics International magazine.


The Aquatics International media network is a trusted source for industry professionals in all fields related to the development, outfitting, and maintenance of aquatic facilities. Every year, Aquatics International magazine readers vote on the industry’s best new products, with the top 25 receiving the Most Value Product award and a feature in the magazine’s June MVP Awards issue.


This year, they selected Vortex’s Astra collection. The new Astra offers three unique Splashpad® experiences, each with its own fun! Astra N°1 and N°3 provide a halo of water which rains down from above for kids to run through. N°3 also features a Twirltec™ ball so children can rotate the water stream to create a beautiful spiral pattern. With three spilling Seeflow™ buckets, Astra N°2 encourages social interaction. Many kids can play at once, and anticipation builds as the children see the buckets fill up before they spill.

This marks the fifth time a Vortex product has caught the eye of Aquatics International magazine readers. In 2020, Vortex received an MVP award for its TwinSplash, an iconic experience with two successive waves, creating a double surprise effect that is suitable for the whole family. Vortex’s PrecisionRide™ series of waterslides, which provide unmatched smooth, comfortable rides, was recognized in 2018. Water Journey™, a collection of playscapes inspired by nature’s flowing streams, was similarly identified in 2016. And in 2015, Vortex’s Watermark, a cutting-edge interactive centerpiece feature that creates patterns and words by manipulating the flow of water, was named to this prestigious MVP group.
