A brand new water park, H2OBX wanted to incorporate a mix of innovative ride attractions designed into a resort style setting that would mirror the surrounding Outer Banks area. As a key part of the park experience, they wanted to create a family destination setting that would give guests of all ages the ability to get in the water and relax and play.
With an innovative twist on the standard wave pool, ADG’s Twin TidesTM fit the bill perfectly to serve as a core family destination attraction. With entry points on both ends of the pool, it automatically doubled the capacity both in and out of water allowing ADG’s designers to allocate more space for lounge chairs, cabanas, and “fun-brella” stations, while still maintaining the spacious, resort style setting the park wanted to achieve.
For H2OBX, the Twin Tides pool was designed in a crescent shape to fit with a multi-level play structure that complimented the ride and completed the family destination setting. Lining the perimeter of the Twin Tides pool are a multitude of shaded lounge areas and cabanas providing parents with an ideal spot for relaxing and watching their children splash and play all day long.
The lounge chairs and cabanas surrounding the Twin Tides pool were consistently filled with families enjoying the day at the park. Guests stayed and played at the park throughout the day which led to bumps in revenue from not only cabana sales, but from F&B as well.
