Sometimes, a design’s strength and beauty lies in its simplicity. In our opinion, the new Spinning Rain water game we’re presenting today possesses those qualities; simplicity, strength, beauty and more importantly, fun. At the end of the day it is a children’s aquatic game, and what matters to them above all else is that it will be exciting and entertaining!
Spinning Rain is a mobile double-jet water game, whose design was inspired by the “Fontaine des automates”, of the Pompidou Centre, a joint work of the Swiss artist Jean Tinguely and the French artist Niki de Saint Phalle. Raised on a column at a height suitable for children’s play, blades rotate, driven by the pressure of the jets at their ends. On turning, they pour circular rain onto the base. Thanks to its perforations, said base acts as a sump and allows the recirculation of water within a closed circuit.
The game consists of crossing the curtain of water without getting wet, or chasing one of the jets, or letting yourself be chased by them. The rotation speed alters with variations in the water flow, so it can be programmed to make random variations and surprise the children. Through the use of motion sensors, there is also the possibility of getting the speed to change depending on the position of smaller kids.
Spinning Rain is an interactive attraction that adds new potential and integrates seamlessly into any Splash Pad. Since the basic structure is covered by 3DTech pieces, the theming possibilities are multiple and customizable for each project.
