Fun Spot Attractions® Moves into Waterparks with SplashTacular®, Inc.

November 21, 2011 No Comments

Fun Spot Attractions Owner and President, John Arie recently made a crucial strategic decision for the company. Although the company’s locations in both Orlando and Kissimmee enjoyed excellent growth and profitability, he decided, along with his family and team, that the timing was perfect to take his family entertainment venue to the next level by adding a waterpark component to the Orlando location. His team was determined to create something unique, and truly special, unlike any family entertainment venue in Orlando, the theme park capital of the world.

“Waterparks have become so commonplace that differentiation between facilities and their respective experiences has become harder for guests to perceive, and that they are
becoming acclimated to the norm in that they have simply become a commodity with a different theme,” said Steve Levine, SplashTacular CEO.

“Fun Spot Attractions and SplashTacular are the perfect combination, the perfect team. I have no doubt that together we will have the most exciting facility and rides in the area. We are looking forward to entering the waterpark industry with SplashTacular as our supplier and partner,” said John Arie.

“Our best work comes from collaboration with specialists who are the best in the industry, which is the reason Water Technology, Inc., the premier design group in the waterpark industry, was selected by John Arie to create a one-of-a-kind, state-of-the-art, signature waterpark, that satisfies their financial and demographic objectives,” explained Levine.

“When meeting with John and his son, John Jr., they shared with me their true passion and love for people, which is infectious and is the heart and soul of their company culture. They further explained that their waterpark should appeal to their current client base of more than 500,000 annual visitors, promote American-made products and services by incorporating SplashTacular rides, all of which are dynamic attractions and features that push the guest experience to new levels, and finally integrating energy conservation and sustainability measures as much as possible,” said Doug Whiteaker, president of Water Technology.

Fun Spot Attractions is on the verge of reinventing the outdoor waterpark guest experience. The park will have one-of-a-kind next generation attractions that will be exclusive to this venue. Nowhere else in the theme park capital of the world will you be able to experience these types of attractions except right here in Orlando! Whether you’re a tot, a teenager, adult or grandparents, this family friendly environment will leave a lasting impression like nowhere else.
