Design and Technology


The Schlitterbahn Development Group (SDG) designs and develops
Transportainment-based water parks and resorts that integrate
Schlitterbahns patented and innovative aquatic attractions and designs,
as well as the operational and safety protocols developed at Schlitterbahn
Waterparks.
SDG was instrumental in the design of Kerzner Internationals Atlantis
Paradise Island Phase III water park expansion in the Bahamas and the
Kerzner International water park The Palm located in Dubai. Both projects
received rave reviews for the Transportainment River and the award-winning
Master Blaster uphill water coasters. SDGsinnovation and vision make them

The Transportainment system functionally makes the majority of the waterpark into an exciting multidimensional, interconnected ride that reduces and eliminates most queue lines, increases safety, greatly
increases the percentage of guests in the park that can be actively experiencing rides and provides
unparalleled ADA access to the waterpark experience.
Schlitterbahn Beach Waterpark in South Padre Island introduced Rio Aventurathe worlds first
Transportainment water park in 2001. This state-of-the-art river system moves guests around the
park while floating on water. The attraction combines the elements of transportation, sports and
entertainment, while minimizing the time park guests spend standing in lines.
The Rio Aventura is approximately a half-mile long. Guests begin their river adventure by entering
from a variety of beaches scattered throughout the park or from the wave pool level by riding uphill
on a massive conveyor called an AquaVeyer. They float through sections of slow-moving water and
whitewater rapids, detouring through two tube chutes and three Master Blaster uphill water coasters,
for a ride that is never the same twice.
The next generation of Transportainment technology debuted at Schlitterbahn Galveston Island
Waterpark in 2006. This award-winning concept combines three separate river adventures into a neverending tubing experience. Guests can take on the tidal waves of the Torrent River, challenge the rapids
of the White Water River or meander along the Crystal River.

Sports and Youth


Schlitterbahn Sports Village
A multi-sport multi-use athletic facility
Fort Lauderdale enjoys a rich history of direct access to professional
and amateur sports. Schlitterbahn, the nations premier family
waterpark, has been growing to integrate multiple sports, lodging and
entertainment facilities into its successful model. Now Schlitterbahn
wishes to bring its latest generation of award winning destination
level multiuse family sports, lodging and water entertainment to Fort
Lauderdale. We call it the Schlitterbahn Waterpark and Sports Village
of Fort Lauderdale.
Given Fort Lauderdales extensive history of professional and amateur
sports, Schlitterbahn Waterpark and Sports Village of Fort Lauderdale
is excited to incorporate amateur athletics into the overall concept.
Schlitterbahn Waterpark & Vacation Village of Fort Lauderdale will
create a multi-sport multi-use, state-of-the-art athletic facility,
complete with environmentally friendly, high quality products, with
both player and fan friendly amenities.
The Schlitterbahn Waterpark and Sports Village of Fort Lauderdale
proposes to use the present locations of Lockhart and Fort Lauderdale
stadiums as the physical basis of the Schlitterbahn waterpark and
sports complex. As much as possible, the present stadiums will be
retained and morphed and upgraded into the multiuse center. These
will include in addition to the new waterpark resort, renovations to
the existing Fort Lauderdale Stadium, allowing for virtual golf, baseball
and softball simulators. At the Sports Retail Center, the food and
beverage service will be creatively themed taking visitors back in time.
Food offerings will range from healthful selections to family-favorites
of pizza and burgers. Adults will enjoy the wide selection of beers and
wines available.
At the Schlitterbahn Sports Village guests can participate in a wide
variety of activities ranging from the mild to the wild. Visitors can bike,
climb, jump and run, or play in almost any sport imaginable, all located
in modern facilities within the Schlitterbahn Waterpark and Sports
Village. The Sports Village would be used for intramural team sports
and local recreational team sports use, but its main intent is designed
to increase the number of teams, players and families coming to
Fort Lauderdale. When you bring together the existing 18,500-seat
Lockhart Stadium, the entire multi-sport multi-use, state-of-the-art
athletic facility is complete.

Convention and Visitors Bureau and according to a recently published article with Fort Lauderdales
sunny weather, great venues, easy airport access and diverse hotel products Webb said that sporting
events held in Fort Lauderdale speak for themselves-bringing in $400 million annually to the city.
