How To Design a Water Park

If you want to build a long-term profitable water park, early design work is very important. From conceptual planning to project construction, the design work of the water park can be divided into the following 7 steps.

1. Preliminary Planning of the Water Park Project

In the early stage of the project, investors need to make preliminary plans for the theme style, market positioning, geographical location, layout ideas, and profit model of the water park


2. Feasibility Study

On the basis of preliminary planning, investors need to verify the feasibility of the project from the technical and economic aspects. The feasibility study is an important link to determine whether the project is worthy to be established or not. The main research contents include policy research, market analysis, financial analysis, risk analysis, etc.

3. Master Plan

After the site selection is confirmed, the team needs to make a spatial layout and corresponding time arrangement for the project. At this stage, it is necessary to clarify the scope and indicators of land use, building requirements, supporting facilities, etc.

4. Concept Design

After the specific design work begins, the team needs to plan the theme story, architectural style, plane layout, moving line setting, water play equipment configuration, and commercial/service/management facility configuration.

5. Scheme Design

On the basis of the concept design, the team will comprehensively carry out special designs such as outdoor decoration, interior decoration, park landscape, lighting, and electrical.


6. Extended Design

On the basis of the scheme design, the team also needs to clarify the size, color, and other details of each functional area and supporting amusement equipment.

7. Final Construction Drawing Design

In the end, the team needs to implement all design results into construction drawings for bidding and later construction guidance.


In addition to the above 7 specific steps, the following three points should be paid attention to when designing a water park.

1. Integrate the Theme With the Environment of the Venue

The landscape design of water parks determines the quality of experience for tourists, and its importance is becoming more and more prominent. The overall environment of the water park should conform to the atmosphere of the theme. According to the characteristics of the water park, the architectural and waterscape elements are ingeniously integrated to create differentiated advantages.

2. Scientifically and Rationally Divide Functional Areas

Scientifically and rationally dividing functional areas can help improve the interactive experience of tourists, and also provide a great convenience for the operation and management after opening.

3. Make the Park Unique and Innovative

Investigating and analyzing the needs of target consumer groups, and establishing unique and novel multi-functional splash projects will help enhance the competitiveness of water parks.
