Aktion Parks said Monday that it made several improvements at its Orlando Watersports Complex.

They include:

  • New Rixen cable operator booths on the standard and advanced cables. The booths replace the original 17-year-old, custom-made booths and the company said they will help increase the efficiency of both cable systems.
  • Modifications to the advanced cable include shortening the ropes by six feet and a corresponding extension of the starting dock. The company said the modifications will allow riders more air time to master more difficult tricks.
  • The advanced cable will soon have a new wave break running down the center of the lake to reduce rollers, which the company said will create a calmer water surface and improve the riding experience.

“Our Aktion Parks team is committed to continually improving the customer experience at our parks,” Correct Craft CEO Bill Yeargin said in a statement. (Correct Craft owns Aktion Parks.)

“These changes will reinforce once again why OWC is consistently rated one of the world’s top boat and cable parks.”
