Water park investors plan to build water parks, but what kind of water park should be built? How large the water park should be? Water park equipment manufacturers will tell you the classification of water parks:
1. Classification by forms
(1) Outdoor water parks
Most water parks are outdoor water parks. For water park investors, he operation period is from June to August in summer. Some areas can operate for 6 months (from the end of April to October).
(2) Indoor water parks
Indoor water parks are generally located in commercial complexes and can operate all year round. However, due to high operating costs and small actual market demand in winter, many indoor water parks close or are converted into parent-child parks in winter.
(3) Comprehensive water parks: outdoor + indoor, land + water
Comprehensive water parks refer to both outdoor and indoor parts, and some of the parks are land parks plus water parks.
(4) Hot spring water parks: the combination of water parks and hot spring
Hot spring water parks are cross-border water parks which combine water parks and hot spring in recent years. By using the characteristics of hot spring and water parks, the two water park forms of different seasons and different popularity can be organically combined. It can solve the problems that the outdoor water park is idle in winter and the hot spring is not in business in summer. However, this attempt has yet to be tested by the market.
2. Classification by consumption patterns
(1) Urban leisure and entertainment type
Urban recreational water parks generally refer to the urban supporting facilities that are located in the city and whose main consumer groups are local residents, and they serve for local residents' leisure and entertainment.
(2) Tourist vacation type
Generally speaking, there is a certain distance between water parks and main cities, and most of the consumers need accommodations. According to the characteristics of the projects, the parks can be divided into hot spring resort type, coastal resort type and tourism destination type.
Water park investors must be clear about the water park type they want to build in the planning, which determines the water park equipment selection and related facility construction in the future. The target market covered by water parks determines the scale of water parks. Large or super large water parks (covering an area of more than 200 mu) can be built in a first-tier city with a population of 10 million, while the recommended scale of water parks in fourth and fifth tier cities is 60-120 mu. Of course, indoor water parks are not included in this category.
