The first permanent Bob the Builder amusement attraction will open in the US in May.
Mega Funworks and SplashDown Beach Waterpark have teamed up with Hit Entertainment to create Splash Works, Bob’s new attraction at the Fishkill, NY park. It will have its grand opening on May 28th during Memorial Day weekend.
Splash Works, a 1,600 square foot Bob the Builder themed spray and play area, will contain more than 50 interactive features. Splash Works will include Bob’s tool shed play structure, two slides, tipping buckets, tot bounces, dancing water and geysers among other features. In addition, Bob the Builder meet and greets will be available daily at the park.
“Over the past five years we have focused our attractions on the teen and adult market. This year, we want to ensure that something fresh and exciting is provided for our younger visitors,” said Steve Turk, owner of SplashDown Beach. “It has been a great experience working with Hit Entertainment; they are professional and passionate about their brand.”
Julie Freeland, director of live events and attractions at Hit, added: “We are thrilled to work with SplashDown Beach to open Bob the Builder’s first permanent attraction in North America. SplashDown Beach has taken all of the colourful and fun elements from Bob the Builder and created a great splash park that we hope kids and families will enjoy for many years to come.”
