Jay Peak, long known by snow enthusiasts for its exciting and challenging terrain, worked with Aquatic Development Group to extend their reputation of having the sweetest mountain experience 365 days of the year, well beyond what infamous Northeastern weather so many times effects. The addition of a modern indoor waterpark clearly answered that call for year-round, ‘who cares what the weather is doing’ awesomeness.
ADG was responsible for the construction of the park’s water features. The Pump House captures the local essence of Jay Peak with all its “in-your-face” glory. The Pump House offers high-end rental cabanas, cozy indoor and outdoor whirlpools and spas, which all certainly beckon the snow-weary, this waterpark wasn’t meant for just relaxation alone. This themed indoor adventure is all Jay from the “Double Barrel” two boarder FlowRider surf simulator and the “La Chute”, the only indoor 60 foot, looping, free fall body slide!
ADG, the manufacturer of the FlowRider, was proud to include this attraction at Pump House, giving guests yet another boarding thrill and the claim that they have Surfed Vermont! Pumping over 57,000 gallons at 500 gallons per minute using sheet-wave technology to generate the perfect wave, the double FlowRider is a hit among the board savvy-crowd returning from shredding the slopes.
Additional waterpark attractions include a themed multi-level play structure with a tipping water bucket feature, two tube slides, one body slide, a lagoon with water basketball & rock climbing wall lagoons, various water spray and “themed snow making” features – all cleverly crafted amongst rugged rockscapes and weathered wood timbers. Encompassing the entire Pump House expanse is “Adventure River”, the longest indoor river in the country, which utilizes ADG’s WaveTek® wave generation technology to keep the fun flowing.
“It’s like lighting your hair on fire with excitement,” said the resort’s Director of Communications, J.J. Toland. “We are already experiencing a 120% increase in our lodging business for available units, rooms and condos.” These new guests will be fully entertained during their stay regardless of the precipitation. “We take great care in matching waterpark features and capabilities with both the company identity and guest interests”, says ADG President, Ken Ellis. “Jay Peak is a culture and we wanted to be sure waterpark guests feel just as excited by the water as they are the snow.”
Completion of the Jay Peak Pump House marks yet another on-time, on-budget project for ADG, known for its ability to design and construct waterparks across the country.

About Jay Peak and the Pump House
Jay Peak is 385 acres and 2,153 vertical feet of glades, bumps, groomers, and parks. Eight lifts, including Vermont’s only aerial tramway, access 76 trails, 4 terrain parks for all abilities – and on average, 376” of natural snow every season. Jay Peak is well known for its glades and extreme chutes but there’s more to the mountain than just expert terrain – like The Zone, Jay Peak’s learning area, which includes 4 lifts that access 11 trails and introductory glades.
The New Jay Peak Pump House Indoor Waterpark is a place for well-earned leisure. A place where you can surf, climb or sit out a rough day. A place where the movement of the water does more than keep you entertained. It actually moves you. Dive in.
