Visitors to Dream Island waterpark are transported into a
Jurassic-themed “lost world” that’s a dream come
true for aquatics aficionados.
Located inside a Kiev shopping mall, the Ukraine’s largest
indoor waterpark covers approximately 270,000 square feet and has a
capacity for about 3,500 people.
Amenities include 14 water slides, five themed pools, saunas and a
children’s play area. Jurassic theming throughout the park
includes prehistoric animals and wild plants.
Dream Island opened in July 2011 and development was not without
challenges, architect Sila Gokalp says.
“Due to the existing rectangular shape of the building, all
the water slides had to start above the building and enter through
the roof,” notes Gokalp of Turkish design firm Polin.
“The new water slides were designed using the existing
building supports, and in the end everyone was happy!”
