On Friday, May 16th in Sandwich, Illinois, Waves of Fun hosted its groundbreaking ceremony to celebrate its opening in early 2009. SCS was in attendance for this momentous occasion. SCS Interactive is collaborating with Waves of Fun, a new waterpark located in Sandwich, Illinois, to create a tropical themed iconic waterplay structure and is delighted to be part of this new 72, 000 square foot indoor waterpark development.
“SCS is excited about creating a unique waterplay attraction for Waves of Fun and it is great to be here today for the kick-off to support the Waves of Fun family. SCS is looking forward to this install and is also happy to be working with the local companies, Riccio Construction and BE Aquatics, ” said Sean Barrett, director of municipal sales for SCS Interactive at the Waves of Fun groundbreaking ceremony.
The SCS structure that will be installed at Waves of Fun is unlike anything the company has done in the past. The attraction has a seven platform bucket tower, which allows guests to climb up a spiral pattern of decks to the top. The 752 gallon tipping bucket; which crowns the top of the structure, is accompanied by nearly 50 different interactives such as hydro blasters and jets. All elements of this attraction offer a memorable experience of soaking wet fun, interaction and adventure for the whole family.
"We are all very excited about Waves of Fun becoming a reality in the near future. The SCS structure will be central in helping us cater to our multi-generational guests. The innovative SCS structure with its Hawaiian theme will offer our guests a truly unique and memorable experience, ” stated Tony Korzyniewski the assistant general manager for Waves of Fun.
The SCS structure will also include four towers full of interaction, three bridges which span 28 feet collectively and two water slides. There will be full integration from the moment you step on the first stair to the moment you splash down the slides to the spray pad below.
SCS Interactive partnered with Ramaker & Associates Inc. of Sauk City, Wisconsin and Splashtacular of La Quinta, California on this exciting attraction.
