More than £100,000 has been spent on new wave making machines at Waterworld and its creating a big splash with the customers!
Murphys Waves – the company behind projects at resorts such as Disney World and Mandalay Bay, in Las Vegas – has installed four new wave machines at Waterworld’s main indoor pool.
Waterworld owner Mo Chaudry said: “This is all part of our ongoing programme of upgrades and expansion, taking the visitor experience to the next level. We worked closely with the team at Murphys to design and manufacture a system which was tailored specifically to our requirements.
“We’ve been listening carefully to comments made by our customers and are committed to giving them what they tell us they want to see.”
He added: “This investment cements our position as the UK’s number one indoor tropical aqua park.
The wave pool is controlled by a state-of-the-art computer system which allows the machines to produce a variety of different wave patterns every two seconds – with variable wave heights of up to 1.4 metres.
A small wall has also been erected around the poolside cafe to prevent diners getting splashed by the bigger waves.
Murphys Waves managing director Jim Stuart said: “The challenging aspect of replacing an old wave machine for a new modern system is getting it to fit within the confines of the existing building and pipework that has been added to the equipment room over the years.
“Our design engineers were able to take a 3D image of the equipment room which then allowed us to plot out the position of the new machine to ensure a perfect installation without the need of any expensive structural modifications.”Back to General News
