For many years, the Cape Codder Resort & Spa has been a highly popular family vacation getaway in Massachusetts. The family-owned seaside resort had featured a popular indoor wave pool, 50- and 80-foot water slides and a 24-person whirlpool for years, but as the resort attracted more guests, these attractions struggled to keep up with demand. The owners of Cape Codder envisioned a warm, open-concept expansion to the park that would change it from a small-scale attraction to an unforgettable destination.
OpenAire stepped forward with partners Rescom Architectural Inc., East Coast Commercial, and Dodd & Associates Engineering Company to make it possible, developing a pristine retractable enclosure. The new 12,240 square-foot, retractable-roofed Cape Codder Water Park features two body slides, a 300-foot lazy river with waterfalls and rapids, a spray deck for children, and a water-play area for toddlers, all available year-round thanks to an elegant double-sloped retractable skylight designed and installed by OpenAire.
Measuring 85 feet by 144 feet, this skylight features ten bays, eight of which include a retractable panel on each slope, plus rafter extensions that offer an extra 5 feet of opening space per bay. The new and improved waterpark will let guests swim and slide in the Cape Cod sun in any season, all with spectacular views of the east coast landscape.
