A new Crystal Lagoon will soon be created on Jungle Island, an 18-acre landmark attraction located on Watson Island in Miami, Florida.
It will mark the beginning of a new business model for the multinational innovation company Crystal Lagoons, whose lagoon development on Jungle Island will become water centrepiece amenity where guests can enjoy zip lines with panoramic views of the Miami skyline, children adventures, water slides and a private beach club.
The lagoon will be the size of two football fields and slated for completion by late 2018.
“The current park caters to visitors who have an interest in animal and nature experiences,” Crystal Lagoons CEO Uri Man said.
“Our amenity is a game changer and we are confident it will dramatically increase the park’s demand and attendance by drawing from a much larger demographic transforming the park into an active water sports enthusiast experience, substantially increasing the number of visitors, both tourists and locals.”
Jungle Island is one of South Florida’s main landmark attractions, complete with animal life, live shows, discovery camps, wild safaris, and offers interaction opportunities with the animal kingdom.
The multinational water innovation company’s lagoon development is a new patented concept that utilises technology to create unlimited-sized, crystal-clear lagoons that bring the luxury of a beachfront experience anywhere in the world at very low costs.
The sustainable Crystal Lagoon uses less water than golf courses, and this is especially true in rain-intensive states like Florida where the lagoons can be refilled with direct rainwater and because of this, would not require make-up water to compensate for evaporation.
Crystal Lagoons technology uses disinfection pulses that allow using up to 100 times less chemicals than swimming pools and also uses an ultrasonic filtration system that allows using up to 50 times less energy than conventional filtration systems. The lagoons uses 30 times less water than a typical 18-hole golf course and 50 percent less water than a park of the same size.
The new lagoon at Jungle Island joins the company’s portfolio of more than 600 projects in 60 countries around the world in different stages of development and negotiation.
