Elevations™ & PlayNuk

A duo of engaging water-play solutions, Elevations™ and PlayNuk add new dimensions to your shallow pools and Splashpads!
Elevations™ offers multi-level adventure with a near-endless array of moving parts and theming possibilities.
PlayNuk scales down Elevations™ for younger explorers and packs early-childhood games into every nook and cranny.

Imaginative, Immersive Experiences that Keep the Fun Flowing

Whether you opt for a standard Elevations™ structure, a pirate-themed adventure or a splashing structure inspired by a tropical rainforest, Elevations™ stimulates the imagination, taking children to exciting new worlds and experiences of their own creation. The action-packed designs combine the anticipation of dumping buckets, the rush of water slides, the social play of spray cannons and a whole array of activators, cascades and sprays that children can manipulate and explore. 

For toddlers and preschoolers, PlayNuk re-imagines the dual-level design as an all-in-one hub with age-appropriate games and accessories. Scaled down steps and handrails make it easy for the little ones to transition from the ground floor to the upper deck while softer spray features, tactile learning experiences and shaded areas ensure hours of fun on hot summer days. 

Super-soaked Fun—Indoors or Out!

Each of these structures can be installed in a variety of exterior and interior sites. Vortex works with you to select a design perfectly suited to your site's size and situation and can even optimize site, structure position and access. Whether you're incorporating them as indoor Pooplay features or an outdoor main attraction, Elevations™ and PlayNuk keep the crowds coming and the little ones moving.

Family Fun on All Levels

Elevations™ and PlayNuk units provide play opportunities on every level. As children move from ground level to the top floor, they uncover different play accessories along the way. Both levels ingeniously interact with one another allowing the older kids and younger kids to cooperate and problem solve as a team. In doing so, the designs encourage intergenerational play, a major draw for young families. No matter which structure and features you choose, your experience will keep families engaged for longer and prompt more return visits. 

We've Done Our Homework

As experts in aquatic recreation, we've researched every aspect of play and applied it to each detail in our Elevations™ and PlayNuk structures. We've thought of it all: the choice of water features, the force and flow of water streams, the way light dances through mists and water curtains, the choreography of small footsteps around each feature—every play event has been engineered to create a highly enriching experience that calls upon the developing faculties of young explorers.
