If you’ve ever visited Disney Land, or any other theme park for that matter, you will have seen a water feature. These are anything from small fountains to huge dancing water shows and they’re often loved by the crowds (certainly the younger members of the audience and the older visitors!) But have you ever given a thought to the design and installation of these attractions? Imagine the complexity of the piping, let alone the pump systems and software that control the water and lights. It’s no wonder then that it takes a specialist company such as the Strasbourg based Aquatique Show to produce, install and maintain them.
Aquatique Show were established in 1979 and began presenting 2 to 5 shows per week in France, Belgium, Switzerland and Germany. Their first exports outside of Europe began in 1989 with an installation for the Bicentenary of Australia. One of their best claims to fame was the creation if the biggest water show in Europe at Futuroscope Park, Poitiers, in France, in 1991, before presenting their aquatic shows throughout the Middle East in 1998 including the Dubai Shopping Festival. In 2001 they made their first installations of water shows in China before the installation of the world’s largest temporary show in Wolfsburg for Volkswagen in 2007.
With a focus on continually producing new and innovative new shows with a focus on new movements, new textures and more powerful lighting effects on their water effects, Aquatique Show continue to be one of the world’s leading designers and producers of water shows. Their amazing water special effect continues to wow crowds throughout the world, with the creation of water effect effect year-on-year. These water features are usually tailor-made, however, there are some standardised displays allowing for more consistent production. For more information see their website.
