Lazy River Design Choices

Choose the rivers:

  • River Scale Selection: Tailor the lazy river’s size to suit your preferences.
  • Customize the Shape and Course of the River: Craft the path of the lazy river to match your desired layout and riding experience.
  • Adjust River Floor Depth: Set the depth of the river floor according to your comfort level, typically ranging from 3.5 to 4.5 feet deep.
  • Flow Rate Modification: Fine-tune the flow rate of the lazy river, typically ranging from 0.5 to 2 miles per hour, adjusting speeds as the river narrows or widens.

Interactive Customizations

Our interactive lazy rivers are typically built with five interactive zones in addition to a bridge with attached “gutterfalls”. Interactive water toys and associated zones can be customized to fit the needs of your park. Below are a few examples:

  • Zone 1: contains our thump pump water features with depth charges on the river floor and our “explosive” crate and barrel with activation trellises.
  • Zone 2: contains two water blasters with activation devices.
  • Zone 3: contains our pour-over cannon, allowing a patron on the pool deck to soak the riders in the river. Additionally, this section contains a cannon and water bender.
  • Zone 4: contains our water war zone, where several different features are activated by color-coded trellises; water players on the pool deck can engage in the fun with patrons in the river.
  • Zone 5: contains the shooting gallery, a gamified experience for kids of all ages to enjoy our water blaster toys.

Minimum Required Footprint

The minimum footprint for a lazy river typically depends on various factors such as desired length, width, depth, and design constraints. However, a rough estimate for a basic, small-scale lazy river might be around 100 feet in length and 10 feet in width, although larger dimensions are more common for a more enjoyable experience. Keep in mind that additional space will be required for surrounding amenities, landscaping, and safety considerations.

Lazy rivers differ from pools as they utilize jets and pumps to maintain a continuous current. Some lazy rivers form loops, providing an endless circuit, while others offer a linear experience. Lazy rivers offer your guests more of an "aquatic ride" experience, especially with the introduction of interactive features.
Proper maintenance of a lazy river involves regular checks on pumps and motors. Maintain a balanced chemical composition, including pH, chlorine, and bromine, to keep the water clean and free of irritants.
