Having partnered successfully with Vortex on a previous property, owner Hakon Lund believed that an interactive water attraction would enhance the overall guest experience and bring families into the outdoors at his amusement park, Kongeparken. Vortex designed a Splashpad® to emulate a stream setting to match the surrounding area, including rock structures as a built-in seating area. Since installing the Splashpad, Kongeparken has experienced a “triple win,” as it delivers satisfaction to three groups – parents, children and the Kongeparken staff, ownership and management. Parents love to sit and watch their kids, even joining them, and appreciate the safety of the zero-depth aquatic play. The littlest guests love the user-friendly water play, getting “thrills” of their own since the bigger park attractions are off-limits to them. And the staff appreciate the ease in maintenance compared to other attractions. Mr. Lund is mostly delighted to see more families with young kids, who are staying longer on-site and spending more in retail and merchandise.
