Vortex Aquatic Structures International, headquartered in Montreal, Canada, was founded by President and CEO Stephen Hamelin in 1995 with the introduction of the first Splashpad®, a trademark that's become synonymous with fun wherever kids play. With over 7,623 installations in 50 countries, our products help municipalities create healthy play environments, bring communities together and create revenue opportunities while maximizing the value of parks and pools.

At Vortex, we don't just manufacture equipment, we design aquatic experiences that promote social interaction, imaginative play and discovery. We prioritize inclusive play and create areas with different water effects, so people of all ages and abilities can join in. Working with our municipal partners, we help create successful destinations where families can come and play, and happy, healthy, thriving communities are the result.

Vortex offers the full spectrum of design, engineering, in-house fabrication, delivery and installation services and training. Whether you are introducing a Splashpad®, an Elevations™ structure or one of our PrecisionRide™ waterslides into your park or aquatic center, we expertly assess your site constraints, user volumes and program goals to make sure our solutions deliver on your every expectation.

Vortex is also a leader in the field of pool refurbishment. By adding Elevations™, Poolplay™ or Waterslide elements in or around a pool, you can easily create an attractive, exciting play venue that appeals to users of all ages, increases user traffic and rejuvenates aging pool infrastructure at a fraction of the cost of a complete overhaul.

  • Vortex Aquatic Structures continues to create innovative products and experiences to attract families to aquatic centers, amusement parks and waterparks. Our stunning new PrecisionRideā„¢ series waterslides are precision-engineered for performance and manufactured with state-of-the-art technology. Aquatic centers and parks will appreciate their superior appearance, the highest strength-to-weight ratio in structures today, and a long life with low maintenance. And your guests will be treated to the ultimate waterslide experience with unmatched smooth, comfortable rides.
