Aqua Shop sends visitors of all ages careening down the artificial swells of its FlowRider surfing simulator, the first such water attraction installed inside a retail store. Customers can don swimwear or waterproof prom dresses before embarking on rides, during which they steer surfboards down perpetually generated waves. Guests can stand, crouch, or lie belly-down on boards as they control their speed and movements, safeguarded by the ride’s cushioning safety padding and unencumbered by the real ocean’s multiple lap-swimmer speed bumps. Reservations must be made online.
Aqua Shop is in the business of defying physics; inside, water flows uphill. The FlowRider wave machine—an attraction usually reserved for theme parks or cruise ships—projects a frothy current blasted up a slanted ramp, emulating a wave for surfers, wakeboarders, and ambitious belly floppers to catch anytime, regardless of tide conditions.
