Family-Friendly Aquatic Play at Unforgettable Galaxy Macau


With 2,200 rooms to fill, the luxurious Galaxy Macau resort made sure they had site attractions for everyone, including the very young. Water Technology, Inc. (WTI), was mandated to create an aquatic play area that appealed to the whole family.

The result was the installation of a Lazy River and a brightly colored Splashpad®. Snaking through the center of the resort, the Lazy River is adorned with Vortex Poolplay™ products that first spray users with gentle mists as they float by. Once past the jets, a canopy of colorful bowls rock back and forth to unpredictably rain water on passing guests. The features add some fun moments to a relaxing journey downstream.


The Vortex installation has increased occupancy ratio, daily rates and length of stay. We have noticed an increase in word of mouth (people like their experience and recommend hotel to friends/family) and increased press about the hotel.

Next to the river, a Vortex Splashpad® is the perfect place to play for the hotel’s youngest users. Showcasing water features like rainbow arches, architectural fountains with transparent Seeflow™ flowers, spray cannons, ground sprays and a spinning water wheel, the Splashpad® provides entertainment for all users, regardless of age or ability. The Splashpad® is also zero-depth, meaning no need for lifeguards as there is no drowning risk.

Exciting, relaxing, and altogether beautiful, the new Vortex water features at the Galaxy Macau help set the resort apart and define it as a unique and unforgettable family destination location.
