The Travel Channel recently came out with their “8 of the Most Incredible Indoor Water Parks” in the US and three of eight of the are designed by Ramaker & Associates!
The newest addition to the Texas landscape, EPIC Waters, has been open a mere two months and has hit capacity multiple times (follow their Facebook page to keep up to date on availability and ticket specials).

The waterpark building program also includes an OpenAire retractable roof and wall systems; movie screens, video and projection equipment; LED light displays/features; party rooms; snack bar and restaurant; sports bar; retail store; arcade; cabanas; landscaped outdoor space with beach and deck areas; locker rooms and bathroom facilities; lifeguard staff area; building mechanical area and pool equipment rooms. The pools and features design were developed in a manner that complements and is cohesive with these components.
Timber Ridge Lodge (Lake Geneva, WI) showcases other aspects of our design work. This facility sports the northwoods feel in 50,000 SF of indoor and outdoor water park. It includes 35 foot high slides taking you on a 300 foot adventure of twists and turns, ending in a heated pool.
The Wilderness (Wisconsin Dells, WI) is comprised of multiple indoor and outdoor parks across the resort with different themes such as the Lost World Waterpark, Wild West Waterpark, Klondike Kavern, and Wild Waterdome. This vast assortment of over 200,000 SF of indoor rides and outdoor fun across nine acres, comes with a variety of interactive rides, slides, cannons, turrets, water blasters, multi-level play features, and a wave pool.
While these parks may differ in size and style, they have all seen tremendous success and visitor satisfaction thanks in part to the choosing an experienced designer to assist in bringing their vision to life!
