People Love Theme Parks! Children and adults get to play together on really fun toys and equipment that would otherwise be unavailable to them. This is the big drawing card that attracts families from far and wide. Sometimes it's only for a day but often for a week or more or for repeat visits all summer long. In this hectic world, it gives families a chance to bond and create fond memories that will last a lifetime. Let's face it; You Can Never Have Too Much Fun!
For Theme Park or Camp Ground operators however, creating a fun experience is serious business and your livelihood depends on it. The capital cost of this equipment is only the beginning. Like all equipment subject to heavy use (and sometime abuse) from your guests and patrons, regular maintenance is a real requirement if you want your fun equipment to last and keep attracting people and their money.
Without maintenance, Theme Park Equipment can have a life of as little as 3 years. With scheduled maintenance, that useful life can be extended to 30 years or more.
Faded, dirty, mouldy and rickety equipment isn't going to attract anyone. We all know that repair and restoration of deteriorated or damaged equipment can be very expensive, not to mention the down time when revenue stops while expenses mount. So, scheduled, preventative maintenance is the answer. Compare the cost, time and inconvenience involved in regular oil changes versus a motor replacement in your truck, every few years.
New and ever changing technologies and materials means the demand for specialty maintenance products hasn't kept up with the new equipment. Cleaning products and protectors available at the hardware store or supermarket just don't cut it and in many cases using the wrong or untested product can do more damage than good. Use of improper products can also void warranties. Besides, labour is the most expensive component of maintenance so it's important to use the right product and to do the job correctly the first time.
INDIKON INC. has acquired the technology and knowledge base from Aurora Marine Industries Inc. in order to manufacture and distribute new advanced products for cleaning, restoring, protecting and enhancing specialty recreational equipment. This includes slides, water toys and inflatable pillows. In addition, our R&D facilities will be available to find new and better solutions and develop newer and better products to properly look after and extend the useful life of your equipment.
Aurora Marine Industries Inc. has been a leader in the development of specialty maintenance, restoration and protective products for the marine industry for over three decades. The marine environment is the most hostile on the planet, so what works on the ocean usually works on land, while the reverse is rarely true. Regular use of these products in this unforgiving climate have been proven to keep boats looking brand new for 25 years, and more. Over the past decade Theme Park, Agritourist Farm and Camp Ground operators as well as Equipment Manufacturers have been calling Aurora for help, usually after the fact when they were trying to salvage deteriorated or damaged equipment. Aurora has been inventing and manufacturing specialty products for cleaning, restoring and protecting fiberglass, PVC, aluminum and other materials since 1980 and are experts in this field. Their considerable expertise is now available to INDIKON Theme Park Supplies.
Although we already have the basic materials available for maintaining, restoring, protecting and enhancing the primary surfaces of Jumping and Bouncing Pillows, Inflatable Water Toys and fiberglass Water Slides, this is just the beginning. Our Website and product development is expected to be a work in progress for the foreseeable future. We encourage you to sign up for our News Letter so we can keep you abreast of the latest developments and to contact us if you have any special requirements or challenges that we haven't already addressed.
As products become available they will be posted on our Website. You can order them directly from the factory and we will rush your order to you by courier, along with instruction on how to get optimum results, or you can order the products you need from your equipment distributor.
Please think of this as your company as much as it is ours. After all, we created it just for you.
