The Challenge

H2OBX wanted a water park designed with classic coastal architecture at the forefront to reflect the feel of the Outer Banks and offer guests resort-style comfort along with traditional family fun. The goal was to target vacationers, families and water park enthusiasts alike with innovative rides and attractions packaged in a themed environment designed for the optimal water park experience.
