Aktion Parks details improvements at Florida water-sports park

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

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.”
