ADG designs & builds Gaylord Palms’ waterpark expansion
Aquatic Development Group (ADG) has completed its third project with the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Centre, (Kissimmee, FL) designing, engineering, and building Crystal River Rapids, an all-new action river water attraction at the resort’s Cypress Springs Water Park. Since 2012, ADG has partnered with the resort three times to build and expand their water park and pool area.
To expand Gaylord Palms’ Cypress Springs Water Park, ADG worked with the resort to design and create a new ride with thrilling water play elements and a natural Florida feel. The ADG team worked to bring the vision of the new action river to life, creating an attraction that appeals to families looking for a vacation getaway, as well as business travellers looking to rest and relax after a meeting or convention.
In addition to the new Crystal River Rapids river, the design for the expansion also included a new food and beverage building, spa, private cabanas, day beds and premium pool seating.
In 2012, ADG designed and built the original aquatic resort area at Gaylord Palms called Cypress Springs Water Park, which included a multi-level tree house playground, zero-entry family swimming pool, relaxing South Beach Pool and pool-side restaurant called The SandBar. The second water park expansion was completed in 2016 and added The Wake Zone Double FlowRider surf simulator, two racing slides and a drop slide for guests who love adrenaline-filled activities.
