This is merely a small selection of the various pool types players can create in Aquapark Tycoon. Alongside these, there are diving pools, current pools, relaxation pools, cascade pools, Kneipp pools, and several more currently in the development pipeline.

Every Pool is a Unique Masterpiece

In Aquapark Tycoon, every pool is unique, built upon a basic model that can be individually customized through various modifications. Players have the flexibility to customize not only the depth and temperature of each pool but also to select from various water types, including chlorinated, thermal, or saltwater. Moreover, they can enhance their pools with special features such as wave machines or additional attractions. With these options, a basic pool can swiftly be transformed into an action-packed fun pool or a pool crafted for relaxation.

Unlimited Creativity

When designing the pools, players have almost limitless options. They can choose from traditional rectangular pools to more imaginative shapes, each adding a unique flair to their aquapark. Even the pool edges and tiles are customizable to suit individual preferences. These aesthetic choices are purely visual and do not impact gameplay, as opposed to the pool equipment, which significantly influences guest satisfaction. Depending on their desires for fun, sports, wellness, or relaxation, guests will gravitate towards the pool that best meets their needs.

Features like massage jets, water mushrooms, and poolside slides attract guests to pools that match their preferences.

Pools lacking these enhancements are viewed simply as basic swimmer or non-swimmer pools. When sports enthusiasts don't find a sports pool, they begin to wish for one equipped with the right gear and lanes. Similarly, visitors seeking fun pools desire those packed with diverse attractions. It's up to the players to design an aquapark that meets as many of their guests’ preferences as possible.

Boxelware will soon provide more insights on how to enhance an aquapark beyond just the pools, transforming it into a truly exceptional destination.

Aquapark Tycoon is slated for release on PC in early 2025. For the latest updates, visit the official website, check out Steam, or join the conversation on Discord. Make sure to add Aquapark Tycoon to your wishlist to keep up-to-date with the latest news!
