As you plan for the future of your water park, today’s health crisis brings a new challenge to designers – balancing the needs of an especially demanding moment with a desire to craft something enduring.
Designing a water park always demands balance — between capacity and intimacy, fun and function, brand immersion and budget — and the desires of one-day guests vs season pass holders.
For existing parks, it’s an immediate matter of doing whatever needs to be done, as quickly and inexpensively as possible, to get the parks open again. But for new parks and attractions, this challenge forces what could become a much more substantial redesign. Why bother proceeding with a plan designed for the old ways, if the old ways are not coming back anytime soon?
This is where the truly experienced and creative designers stand apart. Obviously, designers must consider and comply with all local regulations. But great designers cannot stop there.
Once again, it’s a question of balance — of balancing the need to be successful when launching in the aftermath of a global health epidemic and economic downturn, versus the longer-term financial potential of a top-quality water park.
The most proficient designers and planners will pull from their experiences and expertise to marry together a new form of ‘fun and function’, fundamentally designed to a new real-world order yet highly creative and entertaining — one that embraces the changing technologies and enhanced safety needs and balances it with a guests’ fundamental desire for the freedom to have some fun.
