After years of serving Massachusetts as a highly popular family vacation getaway, the Cape Codder Resort and Spa in Hyannis has unveiled a brand new indoor waterpark with a 12,240sq.ft retractable skylight from that will offer aquatic fun all year.
Once open, the 30,000sq.ft Cape Codder Water Park will feature two body slides, a 300ft lazy river with waterfalls and rapids, a spray deck for children and a water-play area for toddlers – all with a year-round outdoor atmosphere thanks to an elegant double-sloped retractable skylight designed and installed by OpenAire.
Cape Codder had featured a popular indoor wave pool, 50ft and 80ft water slides and a 24-person whirlpool for years, but as the resort attracted more guests these attractions struggled to keep up with demand.
The owners of Cape Codder envisioned a warm, open-concept expansion to the park that would change it from a small-scale attraction to an unforgettable destination that is usable year round.
OpenAire stepped forward, partnering with Rescom Architectural, and East Coast Commercial to make this vision a reality. The result is a pristine double-sloped skylight with vertical glass ends.
Measuring 85ft by 144ft, this skylight features 10 bays, eight of which include a retractable panel on each slope, plus rafter extensions that offer an extra 5ft of opening space per panel.
“We are excited to be part of this innovative renovation,” says Mark Albertine, president and CEO of OpenAire, “Our team is dedicated to bringing the best solutions to every project and working creatively with partners, and the new enclosure at Cape Codder reflects this attitude. Our new design compliments the park’s exciting attractions excellently.”
