The Leading Edge Award, given by The World Waterpark Association to Grupo Lomas and Karisma Hotels & Resorts, honors creativity and innovation in the water attractions industry. This is Nickelodeon's first-ever Aqua Nick in North America, welcoming over 195k guests since opening in August of 2021. Aqua Nick is the ultimate water attraction for Nickelodeon fans, offering over 500 meters of themed adventures, making it one of the largest waterparks in Mexico. For thrill-seekers, the waterpark features a 720-foot Adventure River, a 1,100-foot lazy river with iconic Nickelodeon sculptures and surprises, and the Big Plunge, Riptide Rush, and Bowl Blaster slides. Younger guests can visit PAW Patrol Adventure Bay, a play structure with exploratory paths, water cannons, a giant tipping bucket, and the opportunity to swim surrounded by PAW Patrol friends. More Nickelodeon fun can be found at Bikini Bottom Beach, where visitors can join SpongeBob SquarePants and friends at a multi-level water playground with slides and Slimetastic opportunities to interact with Nick's iconic green goo including a daily Super Sliming event, where guests can get doused with over 2500 gallons of Slime via a fully custom one-of-a-kind delivery system. The park has drenched fans in over 637,000 gallons of slime to date, including 375 Super Slimings and over 2,688 personal Slimings.

Additionally, the AAA Diamond program provides independent and trusted travel guidance to members and B2B travel groups, allowing AAA customers to book with confidence knowing the properties meet or exceed AAA's industry standards. To ensure accuracy and meet member expectations, AAA's team of professionally trained experts perform unannounced inspections, including physical and scientific assessments. Fifty-four thousand hotels and restaurants currently have Diamond designations ranging from approved to Five Diamond based on the quality of the experience, range of amenities, and level of hospitality members can expect. In addition to receiving the award, the resort also received AAA's new cleanliness certification, passing the ATP surface test. ATP surface testing scientifically identifies the presence or absence of biological matter, which is a gauge of general sanitation and levels of hygiene. ATP monitoring is recognized by the National Institutes of Health and Center for Disease Control and Prevention using the same screening technologies found in healthcare.

From InterPark:


At the recently held World Waterpark Association Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, WhiteWater was honoured with four Leading Edge Awards for its ‘achievements in extraordinary projects.’

The awards were won thanks to the projects in Water World Ocean Park Hong Kong, China, Aqua Nick at Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Riviera Maya, Mexico, Wild Rivers, USA and Baha Bay at Baha Mar, The Bahamas. 

Concretely, Aqua Nick is the biggest theming project WhiteWater has ever created in their 40-plus years of history – bringing the world of Sponge Bob, PAW Patrol, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and other storylines to life across 11 water slides, a Rain Fortress 5, AquaPlay 200, Splash Pad, and Lazy River.

According to WhiteWater, this water park ‘successfully uses intellectual properties with built-in audiences to immerse guests in a fictional world full of fun and excitement, for toddlers, thrill seekers, and everyone in between. 

‘It is a testament to the remarkable artistry, design skills, and teamwork between all partners involved.’

WhiteWater describes their achievements as projects which have ‘demonstrated originality, creativity, and first-rate engineering, providing new experiences for water park guests in different parts of the globe.’

“Through incredible collaboration between our teams, clients, and partners, we are able to build impressive water parks that push boundaries – both technically and creatively,” said WhiteWater President, Paul Chutter. 

“Each of these parks brings guests experiences not to be found anywhere else in the world, with attractions that will soon be established icons.”
