Two heavy hitting, world-class themed entertainment firms have announced a collaboration that will allow for the turnkey design-development of thematic water environments for guests on a global scale.

Scenario, the award-winning thematic fabrication firm, has joined forces with internationally renowned aquatic consultant, Martin Aquatic Design & Engineering, to deliver comprehensive design-build services to clients for the development of highly thematic water environments.

“Our two firms are expert in the design and delivery of highly thematic guest environments,” said Scenario USA’s Vice President, Dan Moalli. “Combining Martin Aquatic’s mastery of conceptualizing and engineering water-led attractions with Scenario’s thematic design development capabilities is a win-win for every client seeking a streamlined way to deliver unique aquatic elements that enhance the guest experience.”

“Martin Aquatic is extremely excited to have the opportunity to be the preferred water feature design partner of Scenario,” said Josh Martin, President & Creative Director. “This relationship will allow us to leverage our experienced creative aquatic designers and engineers alongside the best client solutions in the industry. We see opportunities to enhance existing relationships with our own clients. When there is a right fit, we’ll now have the capability to offer a holistic approach with new ventures.”

The collaboration between Scenario and Martin Aquatic will expand the growing capabilities of Scenario to assist owners and operators to affect the best outcome of a project. It follows the announcement of “Launch,” a partnership between OE Experiences and Scenario, which integrates business, financial, and construction advisory owner representation services seamlessly. “Each situation and client is different, but we increasingly see a need for Turnkey development services that provide speed, clarity and accountability to our clients.” Says Moalli.


In addition to its work in the themed entertainment and waterpark industry, Martin Aquatic also services other sectors of resort and hospitality, commercial and multi-family development, higher education, recreation, and the cruise industry. The aquatic design studio just announced the completion of a major waterpark addition to the Orlando World Center Marriott. Last year, Martin Aquatic saw the opening of VinWonders’ fountain show, Once: An Enchanted Storybook Spectacular in Phu Quoc, Vietnam.
