Aquatic Development Group (ADG) has won the World Waterpark’s Leading Edge Award 2019 for two innovative waterpark projects – the Kartrite Resort and Indoor Waterpark and Island H20 Live!
The Kartrite Resort and Indoor Waterpark was designed and built by ADG, in partnership with Architectural Design Consultants (ADCI). The Kartrite Resort is located on the Resorts World campus in the Catskill Mountains area of New York.
The site opened in May 2019. It spans an area of two acres, comprising of a four-season indoor waterpark and a luxury hotel.
Greg Silver, president & CEO of EPR Properties, owners of the Kartrite resort, said: “As you can see from this beautiful property, as well as with their portfolio of other successful projects, we know we made the right choice in choosing ADG as our partner. They are first class, best in the country, and that’s the quality of a product we were looking to deliver here at the Kartrite.”
ADG also designed and built Island H20 Live!, Central Florida’s newest waterpark. The park covers 11.5 acres, boasts a tropical theme and is home to more than 20 different attractions.
The centrepiece of the waterpark is a 24,000sq.ft. wave pool, which is powered by ADG’s Wavetek wave system.
Other key attractions include a 1,300ft. long lazy river with a 500sq.ft. beach entry, family raft rides, water coasters and a gated pool escape for adults.
