The Hettema Group provided concept, design and production services on the thematic elements that bring the delightful DreamWorks animated characters to life for adventures in this multi-record setting indoor water park. The largest indoor water park in the United States, DreamWorks Water Park offers a “splashing good time” inspired by the most beloved DreamWorks Animation characters and settings. Upon entering, guests will be wowed by the largest indoor wave pool in the world, along with multiple attraction zones based on DreamWorks IPs. Highlights include the Madagascar Rain Forest, Shrek’s Soggy Swamp, the Kung Fu Panda challenge zone, the Penguins play area . . . AND a 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 is happy and grateful to announce the opening of the much anticipated DreamWorks Water Park at the American Dream megamall in New Jersey on October 1, 2020. It is no small feat to open a major visitor attraction under the best of circumstances, never mind in the midst of a global pandemic that has put a pause on so much of public life.
