The best way to immerse guests into a theme is to pay attention to all the details, large and small.
Gina Kellogg presents a case study in Resort and Recreation Magazine of Evergreen Wings & Waves Water Odyssey adjacent to Evergreen Museum in McMinnville, OR, welcomes guests to the aircraft-themed waterpark with a retired Boeing 747 sitting directly on top of the building. Guests queue up for two waterslide rides down to the belly of the building below.
Among attractions such as an indoor wave pool, leisure pool with spa, and a tot area with bubblers and fountains, there’s also a waterslide in a built-to-scale model of the Discovery Space Shuttle, another waterslide in a Messerschmitt WWII fighter aircraft, and a helicopter that dumps a large bucket of water on an imaginary Pacific Northwest wildfire.
