Orlando, FL….SplashGolf, the first water oriented miniature golf course is announced by Adventure Golf Services at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions annual trade show. SplashGolf has nine mini golf holes with special water effects on each hole all of which mounted on a splash pad made from a patented panel system.
“This concept is created to help fill the need for more passive water activies in the water park arsenal of high powered water action events,” comments Scott Lundmark president Adventure Golf Services. “We have recognized the age old issue of blending active and passive activities in water parks and this product does the job. We also wanted to bring the water up onto the course and bring the player into the water for a completely new and fun experience. It is a water activity game that can be played by anyone the same as traditional miniature golf course….the difference is the water, the sprays, the fountains and more are very much interactive with the player/s not just the ball and game”
“SplashGolf is fun, wet and entertaining,” comments Arne Lundmark chief designer. “This is a game that the player never knows what is going to happen to the miniature golf ball and where it will go. On several golf holes, players may blast the mini golf balls around with water cannons as the other player tries for a hole in one. Playing the water vortex hole leads to surprise as the water spins the ball where it may come out on two different areas of the green.
“I personally like the reverse ball-run hole where players shoot uphill toward a waterfall where the ball goes into one of two water sluices and passes back behind the player on the tee to a green. On the slalom course hole players must putt the ball through a series of random spurting fountains. There are additional fun golf holes, such as the Pachinko hole, jumping the ball through a water screen, navigating the gusher, and splash down with two side horizonal water blasts.”
The 4,000 square foot, ADA accessible, zero depth splash pad is covered with colorful flexible seamless paving material, which can include any custome design or image such as sea critters, according to Mike Arnold project manager. The patented panels which create the splashpad base are unique in the industry. Our design provides rapid drainage through the panel system directly into the reservoir pond below. This system does not require penetrations into the reservoir pond while the low volume pumps are mounted in a plastic water control container. All water is treated, filtered and heated.
“SplashGolf is ideally suited for water parks, amusement parks, tourist attractions, resorts and hotels, campgounds and city / municipal parks and recreation centers,” concludes Scott Lundmark.
