A water park is an amusement park that features water play areas, such as water slides, splash pads, spray grounds (water playgrounds), lazy rivers, or other recreational bathing, swimming, and bare footing environments. Water parks in more current states of development may also be equipped with some type of artificial surfing or body boarding environment such as a wave pool or Flow Rider.
Evolution of water parks
Water parks have grown in popularity since their introduction in the late 1940s and early 1950s. The United States has the largest and most concentrated water park market, with over a thousand water parks and dozens of new parks opening each year. Major organizations are
 (International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions) and WWA (World Water park Association) which is the industry trade association.
Water parks emerging from spas continue to more closely resemble mountain resorts as they become four-season destinations-for example, Universe Water Park Resort, a member of the World Water Park Association, is themed to match the community in which it is located. The theme is intended to enhance the communities’ destination appeal. Therefore, the amusement and leisure time industry is becoming more concentrated as winter sports are becoming commonplace themes in summertime water rides. A process of concentration can be observed in the hybrid segments of theme-, amusement-, and water parks. Some water parks are more spa-oriented; e.g. Schwaben Quellen, a member of European Water parks Association (EWA) has no water slides, but instead has many saunas, steam rooms, “adventure showers”, and relaxation-oriented water play areas.
In the 2000s, an effort was made to reduce long waiting lines by introducing conveyor belts to lift passengers
 or use water jets.
 A unique feature at a water park is ice skating. Deep River Water Park in northwestern Indiana features ice skating thanks to cooling pipes that were added under their massive plaza during a recent expansion.
Indoor water parks
The first-ever indoor water park was built in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada in 1985 at the West Edmonton Mall as part of the $1.2-billion-dollar Phase III expansion. Called World Water Park, is the world’s second largest indoor water park, over 217,800 sq ft (20,230 m2) in size.
 It includes the world’s largest indoor wave pool, waterslides of varying degrees, tube rides, bungee jumping, and hot tubs. Tropical Islands Resort (Germany) with an area of 66,000 m² (710,000 sq feet) is currently the largest indoor water park in the world.
