Rides in the Pump House include Double Barrel, a dual FlowRider surfing attraction that gives two guests at a time the chance to tackle waves on boogie boards; and a long lazy river that travels the perimeter of the park and includes some rapids elements.
There’s also a children’s play structure and La Chute, the first AquaLoop to debut in an indoor waterpark. To accommodate the considerable height of the AquaLoop, the retractable aluminum-glazed glass roof includes a custom-designed cupola. Alongside the water attractions, the park offers an arcade with redemption games and a snack bar.
Opened in 2011, the 50,000-square-foot Jay Peak Pump House indoor waterpark is built along the theme of being “raised Jay,” a local colloquialism that embodies the adventurous spirit of Vermont and its ski culture.
All the themed environments in the waterpark appear to have been made from locally reclaimed objects such as metals, wood and ski parts. The characters — made from mufflers, ski parts, metals and wood — are each engaging in an extreme sports activity found at the resort. The total project cost $20 million.
