Splash City in Kansas opens dual entry wave pool from Aquatic Development Group

By | November 17, 2016



SHAWNEE, Kansas — This past summer, Splash Cove in Shawnee, Kan., opened Twin Tides, a dual entry wave pool from Aquatic Development Group (ADG). The bow-tie shaped attraction is designed to double the capacity of a typical wave pool and is the only one of its kind in the Midwest. The pool has two shallow entry points opposite each other, with a deep end in the middle. ADG’s exclusive WaveTek wave generating equipment on either side of the deep end can generate four different kinds of recreational waves from gentle rollers to high-action diamond patterns. The cost of the new wave pool was not disclosed, but it was part of a $9.25 million renovation.

The unique configuration allows for double the occupancy of most wave pools by giving guests access to the pool at both ends.

David Allacher, aquatic supervisor at Splash Cove, said, “The guest response to the Twin Tides pool is astronomical. They love this wave pool; any time they walk in, they see the waves rolling and they are ready to get in and rock and roll.”
