beyond 2020… and what’s in store for water

beyond 2020… and what’s in store for water



2020 has been a challenging year. The pandemic hit hard on all types of businesses, and while many parks were unable to open, the ones that did showed us that it was possible to deliver a good guest experience amidst even the most challenging of situations.

Thanks to dedicated staff that braved the pandemic, work within our industry continued.  New waterparks were built, new rides were added, park renovations were completed, and service to our rides and equipment never ceased, as our team of designers, technicians, construction managers and engineers were determined to do all they could to keep our clients forging ahead and operating successfully.

So what did we learn from this pandemic, what trends do we predict we’ll see going forward, and what projects are on the horizon in 2021…

Let’s dive right in..
