Fog for Cooling
Fog and misting systems can help deliver spectacular visual effects, but fog can also help cool the environment. Even though there is water throughout a waterpark, cooling the environment is still necessary. Extreme temperatures can deter visitors from attending waterparks during peak summer months. Though visitors seek relief in pools and water rides, temperatures in dining or waiting areas can be punishing, especially for parents who aren’t necessarily taking advantage of those features.
How It Works
The process is this. Operating at pressures of 1000 psi+ Koolfog produces micron-sized water droplets that, while evaporating and turning to vapor, removes heat from the air, cooling the surrounding area. The dry fog produced by a Koolfog system reduces outdoor temperatures by as much as 35 degrees Fahrenheit, which makes even 100+ degree days comfortable. This ensures that all guests remain in-park and generating revenue.
Financial Advantages to Misting Waterparks
Especially when misting is included in observation areas, dining patios and private cabanas, it can be the difference between a truncated and elongated stay for a family. Guests who stay longer spend more money on tickets, food and merchandise, thus it is ultimately profitable for a waterpark to invest in cooling strategies. Visitors no longer dread waiting in observation areas while family members enjoy their favorite rides. After visiting the food court, they enjoy the luxury of relaxing with a sandwich or beverage in a veil of soothing mist while watching their children experience the waterpark.
