This marks the sixth time a Vortex product has caught the eye of Aquatics International magazine readers. In 2021, Vortex received an MVP award for its Astra collection, three unique Splashpad® experiences, each with its own fun. TwinSplash, an iconic experience with two successive waves, was a winner in 2020, and Vortex’s PrecisionRide™ series of waterslides 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.
