Den Blå Planet Aquarium Boosts Summer Appeal With Water Journey by Vortex


Vortex, world leader in aquatic play solutions, has provided its Water Journey product to Den Blå Planet (The Blue Planet) Aquarium in Copenhagen.

The aquarium installed the Labyrinth module in a bid to attract summer visitors to what is primarily an indoor attraction.

“The Labyrinth is a significant addition and attraction to our open air area, ” says Kai Frydendahl, Vice-President, Den Blå Planet. “Our visitors have another reason to head to the Aquarium, even when the weather is good and they want to be outside.”

Labyrinth is part of the award-winning, four-module Water Journey solution inspired by nature’s flowing streams. A benefit of its shallow design is that it allows children to play without getting too wet.

The new attraction is proving a popular communal meeting place for parents and visitors as they prolong their visit to watch the water on its downstream journey.

Rather than staying away during spells of hot weather, says Frydendahl, visitors “can be outside here enjoying Water Journey”.

Last year, Vortex scooped a GRANDS PRIX DU DESIGN Award for Water Journey, one of a raft of awards won by the Canadian company in 2015.
