OpenAire has begun construction of the new 100,000 sf Island Waterpark at The Showboat Resort Atlantic City.
OAKVILLE, ON – March 2022 – OpenAire is pleased to share that Tower Investments Inc, a leading developer of retail, entertainment, mixed use, residential and commercial properties, founded by Bart Blatstein, who is also the owner of Showboat Resort, broke ground in January on a new $100 million indoor water park in Atlantic City.
The 100,000-square-foot park will be called the Island Waterpark and is going to be located at the Showboat Resort Atlantic City. The waterpark is expected to open to the public in 2023.
The retractable roof enclosure by OpenAire will open to the adjacent boardwalk and how everything from an exclusive adults lounge to a zip line and suspended coaster over the largest waterpark in the region. The over 550ft long building will include a variety of adult and kid friendly zones plus large sliding doors that open to the boardwalk.
The Waterpark will include:
OpenAire is pleased to share that the waterpark will sit adjacent to the Showboat Resort and the entirely aluminum enclosure will be able to resist the corrosive effects of both the waterpark and the beachfront ocean air. The operable roof will ensure that the park can be open every day year round.
OpenAire has been designing and building retractable roof enclosures for waterparks for over 30 years. The aluminum structures are maintenance free, corrosion resistant and are naturally ventilated reducing energy consumption and life cycle costs for the waterpark.
The Island Waterpark is the newest part of an ongoing commitment to creating Atlantic City’s first year-round family resort, following the recent opening of the Lucky Snake Arcade at Showboat Resort. The Lucky Snake is an 85,000 sf arcade, featuring more than 300 games, a sports bar, a boxing ring, e-sports gaming, live entertainment stages, and a speakeasy that pays tribute to the town’s history and involvement in prohibition. The newest attraction this Spring to this fabulous arcade is indoor go-carts which will make this the largest arcade on the East Coast.
The Island Waterpark will ensure that the Showboat Resort continues its evolution into THE family friendly resort destination in Atlantic City. The beachfront location and bright space full of new and exciting water attractions and water sports will become a target destination for family fun in the region. The benefit of the fabulous location and assortment of activities is sure to please crowds of all sizes and ages.
