If you give guests slides and other water rides that offer real thrills and excitement -adrenaline -pumping experiences that theycan’t get anywhere else -then it’s definitely possible to keep them coming back again and again. And that allows even a shortseason to be extremely profitable. Plus, waterslides and water play structure are appealing to families who might not otherwise beinterested in the ‘typical’ theme park experience. After all, a waterpark allows guests to spend much more time together than mosttheme parks. They can ride many of the slides as a group. They can splash together in the wave pool or float along in the leisureriver. And they can let little ones entertain themselves with the interactive gadgets and gizmos of the kids’ water playground.
