American Wave Machines and Skyplex Bring Sky Surf Park to Orlando’s I-Drive

October 29, 2015 No Comments

The first Surf Park in the sky with three of the biggest standing waves in the world is coming to the Theme Park Capitol of the World. American Wave Machines is bringing the stoke of surfing to central Florida with the addition of Sky Surf Park to Orlando’s Skyplex entertainment complex featuring SurfStream  surf machines.

American Wave Machines has announced that the new out-of-ocean surf venue is scheduled to open in 2018. Sky Surf Park will be an unprecedented premiere attraction 10 stories up at Skyplex, with plans to include a casual beach and surf atmosphere for surfing and hanging out in the sun with full food and beverage services, lounges and cabana options. A beachside café with large patio seating will offer a front row seat to the surfing along with craft beers and signature cocktails. Guests looking to surf can choose from three of the largest surf machines each running different waves ranging from family bodyboarding, fun face waves and overhead barreling waves.

“With surfing as one of the most aspirational of all sports and recreations, and with Orlando being one of the most visited cities in the world, Sky Surf Park will become a leading out-of-ocean surf destination,” said Bruce McFarland, founder and president, American Wave Machines. “The iconic concept put forth by SkyPlex Orlando owners aligns with our vision for premium surf destinations in urban environments.”
