Aquatic Development Group to design US$40m Margaritaville waterpark in Orlando
POSTED 03 Dec 2018 . BY Tom Anstey
The Aquatic Development Group has been selected to design and build the Orlando area's newest waterpark – part of the US$750m (€661m, £589.6m) Margaritaville Resort currently under construction in the area.

Called Island H20 Live!, the waterpark element of the resort in Kissimmee will open by the end of Q2 2019.

Given a tropical theme, the US$40m (€35.3m, £31.5m) waterpark will cover 46,500sq m (500,000sq ft) and will be home to 15 water attractions.

Included will be a 24,000sq ft (2,200sq m) dual beach wave pool, a 1,300 ft long (400m) lazy river with a 500sq ft (46.5sq m) apron beach entry, a basketball and crossing lagoon, a multi-level play structure, kids activity pool and nine water slides.

The waterpark, which is the first to open in Kissimmee in more than 13 years, will be the first in the area to include an adults-only section. In this part of the waterpark will be a 2,500sq ft (232sq m) pool surrounded by a large deck and lounge area will feature. The space will also feature DJs and be used as event space and for dance parties.

The waterpark is set to use the Vantage, wearable wristband technology. This waterproof tech can be used for multiple purposes, including sharing things on social media and signing into rides.

The wider Margaritaville resort is being developed by Encore Capital. The project will also feature 200,000sq ft (18,500sq m) of retail, as well as 300 timeshare properties and a 184-bedroom hotel.

Horizon Waterpark will own the waterpark and is working with Encore on the attraction.

The Margaritaville Resort will be the 13th of its kind, with 11 other resorts around the US and one in the Cayman Islands. Seven more are currently planned, with the Florida addition to open its doors in January.
