In order to create the ultimate water park design, it is necessary to put a number of elements into the correct place. First of all, a professional design team is needed to turn the ideas that the creative people give into something that engineers and architects can draw, and construction contractors can build. No two products will ever come out the same in this wild and unpredictable field of work.
First, there needs to be an over arching theme that will be the glue to bind the entire place together. Usually, an aquatic theme is used, such as super heroes of the deep or pirates. The decor of this amusement center will reflect this theme, and it will also show up in merchandising and marketing efforts.
The scope must be determined. Factors such as the size of the property, parking lot size, number of occupants permitted by law and availability of basic utilities are all important at this stage of planning. Someone, usually from the creative side, must give an idea of what kinds of attractions, amusements and shows are expected to be offered in order to begin to get a sense of some mechanical needs and physical lay out of the premises.
This is where the mechanical and logistics team comes in. They are the group that is tasked with turning the ideas that were created in the minds of the creative team into a realistic and properly laid out plan so that it can be mechanically drawn and then built. This stage brings a number of challenges as well.
The design team quickly goes to work on drawing the sizes, volumes and positioning of different rides, swimming pools and vending stations. The team will decide what materials should be used and how they will be assembled. At this stage, there will also be some cost estimates for costs related to materials, the construction process and potential utility usage once the attractions are in operation.
Once the entire project has been planned and construction has been started, the management team looks at employee levels and determines appropriate staffing for the operation. It is important to open with enough trained staff to cover all operations, but not to have too many employees draining profits. Labor costs should be calculated far in advance so that there are no surprises once the establishment is open.
One way to keep costs low is to recycle aquatic material. An H2O recycling program makes sense for the environment, but it also makes financial sense as well. A good program will set as a goal the recycling of at least forty percent of all water used. This recapture helps keep costs down and run the operation effectively.
The best water park design is usually achieved when the creative and mechanical teams work together in order to develop the best finished product possible. The location of the entertainment facility is important too. In warmer climates, the attraction may remain open year round, but in more temperate climates, it may have to close for the winter.
