July 2022 marked the return of Wild Rivers Water Park to Irvine, CA, a reinvention of the original park that held a spot in the city for 25 years but closed in 2011. With a challenge laid out to bring back to life a bigger & better version of the beloved original, the new $60 million, 20-acre Wild Rivers park is 50% larger than its original and designed to incorporate all the latest in technological advances while still paying homage to the parks nostalgic roots in the community.
ADG designed the concept for Wild Rivers water park to pay homage to the preexisting water park that was loved and nostalgic for the community while updating the attraction mix, theming and layout of the park.
Working with the owners and developers, ADG designed the park to offer a number of exciting new rides, while also keeping some favorites from the original, including replicas of iconic slides like the Bombay Blasters and Switzer Falls.
From new high-tech features like a water coaster with virtual reality capabilities, to the tried and true lazy river and wave pool attractions, the new Wild Rivers offers a creative mix of “chills and thrills” surrounded by ample deck & lounge space and a plentitude of food and drink options to satisfy every guest.
ADG supplied the wave equipment for the 25,000 sqft 6 ft depth 'Shaka Bay' wave pool, designed/built the quarter mile-long lazy river and worked with a slide vendor to supply over 15 water slides.
