In Water Play, visitors can dam up the tank and create channels to direct the flow of the water, or simply allow the weight of the water to break the dams.
There is a pinwheel that will spin when placed in the current and several small boats, fish and crayfish that will float (or move along the bottom) and swirl around in the eddies created by the dams. The flowing water moves downstream to drain before the water is filtered and recirculated.
The water is filtered before getting recirculated by a particulate and ultraviolet filter, as well as a copper ion generator to help kill any germs. Water levels are controlled by a micro-controller to prevent overflow in the event of large dams.
