The owner of Calypso Waterpark sought to develop a regional waterpark that would serve the Montreal/Ottawa markets. Having previously worked with ADG, they once again commissioned their design team to:
- Design/build waterpark attractions to span across 25-acres.
- Maximize guest experience through park layout and design.
ADG designed and constructed the new 25-acre waterpark to include a 52,000sqft marquee wave pool, the largest in North America, powered exclusively by ADG’s WaveTek™ wave generation system. The park also boasts a 1,600ft themed Adventure River and innovative multi-level play structure.
Provided with a vast footprint in which to work, ADG’s designers took strategic advantage of the space to build in ample amounts of decking areas for guest enjoyment, food and beverage, and retail opportunities. Maintaining an open and un-crowded feel, opportunities for future expansion were also incorporated into the design.
The construction of Calypso Waterpark has resulted in the park serving as the go-to waterpark for both residents and visitors of the Montreal and Ottawa areas. Since its opening in 2009 the park has exceeded expectations, witnessing attendance rates much higher than projected. The success has allowed for three additional expansions, expanding the park to over 30 acres in just five short years.
