THG provided concept, design and production services for the DreamWorks Water Park, the largest indoor water park in North America (named #1 by USA Today). DreamWorks Water Park offers a “splashing good time” inspired by the most beloved DreamWorks Animation characters and settings, including the Madagascar Rain Forest, Shrek’s Soggy Swamp, the Kung Fu Panda Temple of Awesomeness, the Penguins Frozen Fun Zone, and the How to Train Your Dragon hydrocoaster—the tallest and longest in the world. Floating above it all are large-scale character lanterns, more than 50 feet tall.
THG drew on its long-standing relationship with and intimate knowledge of DreamWorks IP to develop its design for the ground-breaking water park. In particular, THG was asked to address design at scale – how do you create themed environments that can be both epic and budget-friendly? THG worked with fabricators to develop themed setpieces constructed from painted metal sheeting to create everything from enormous baobab trees to crashed aircraft. In addition, THG worked with a specialty tile manufacturer to install ultra-colorful murals that functioned as set extensions and backdrops to the slides. This kind of partnership thinking allowed the DreamWorks Water Park to feature impressive theming at the right budget for the project – ultimately creating an amazing environment for guests to have a great day at the park.
