Construction of Alottawata Water Park on track for June 2009 opening

OTTAWA

The latest entrant in the Ottawa-area water park battle is the $30 million Alottawata Water Park south of Barrhaven.

With the majority of the water park’s site cleared in February and early March, construction of Alottawata is on track for its June 2009 opening, Rick Hunter, president and CEO of Proslide Technology Inc, said in a statement.

The investment at Alottawata for specific water park-related infrastructure and equipment is targeted at $30 million.

“As in any business, if the market responds over our forecasted projections, the demand will afford further investment to $40 million or more over time” stated Hunter.

Alottawata is located on the south end of Moodie Drive in Ottawa, close to the Bankfield/Brophy exit on Hwy 416. Proslide Technology, a leader in water-ride making, is the owner of Alottawata which will be built over a 100-acre site.

Proslide has supplied water rides to some of largest water parks worldwide, from Florida to Australia.

“Our plan for Alottawata is to not only build the largest water park in the region, but to definitely build one of the most unique water parks in the world,” said Hunter.

The park will start with 10 rides, employ 120 seasonally and anticipates 5,000 visitors daily.

The Ottawa-area’s second water park development is being built by Le Groupe Village Vacances Valcartier and is called Sunnyland Amusement Resort.

This park will be located in Limoges, near Ottawa, over a 460 acre site, and the park is scheduled to open in June, 2009. Thirty-five year-round and 500 seasonal jobs will be created through this park.

The construction of the resort will include a huge water themed amusement park and campground.

The first phase of construction includes a $50 million investment over a 10-year period.

An estimated $8 million will be spent on infrastructure costs alone.
