Developments - February 2018 - 14

Morgan's Inspiration Island, the world's
first ultra-inclusive splash park, has been
designed to be inclusive of all cognitive,
physical, and sensory abilities so that all
of its guests can experience the joy of play.
WhiteWater redesigned the classic Water
Transportation System, as well as created
five custom-themed, fully-inclusive splash
pads, to meet Morgan's mandate to create a
place where everyone can play.
Morgan's River Boat Adventure twists and
turns more than an eighth of a mile through
a jungle setting, by means of WhiteWater's
Water Transportation System, which has
been redesigned to easily accommodate
wheelchairs and guests with physical
limitations, giving everyone an opportunity
to experience the fun of a river journey.

WhiteWater's Manta slides are the only
"winged" waterslide on the market. The skyline profile of the Manta's enormous wings
makes it fun feature for any park - designed
to thrill the whole family.
Differing from other funnel slides on
the market, the Manta entrance is a more
accommodating shape allowing for flexibility in upstream slide path design, which can
be an important factor when meeting space
requirements, enabling it also to work in
indoor parks. This family raft slide can be
seen in installations in Russia, China, and
the the United States.
