Since 1986, Empex Watertoys of Toronto, Canada, has manufactured creative interactive water toys and spray features for water play and sprayparks in campgrounds, municipal parks, waterparks, amusement parks, family entertainment centers, day camps, summer camps, golf courses and resorts.

Ergonomically designed for safety, the products are nonmetal, lightning-proof and corrosion free; fabricated of rugged, specialty plastics for use in chlorinated water.

Much lighter than metal, installation of Empex features does not require elaborate foundations or embedded anchors. Completely surface mounted, the features are easily retrofitted to existing water supplies or interchanged to vary the spraypark design from year to year.

Empex Watertoys now presents its latest creation—the Aquaton Spraypark.

The signature Empex “Aquatecture” is made up of a central climb and slide Aquadek surrounded by a combination of interactive Watertoys, Aquajetz and Aquatons spray features for kids of all ages. The new Baby Bungee design also caters to babes in arms.

Aquatons require minimal maintenance and have no troublesome exposed fasteners, valves or levers. Interactivity is provided through the children’s interaction with water flow alone. Products are created from extremely strong reinforced composite plastics and are available in a variety of standard and custom shapes with the Empex color signature to create a dynamic and colorful spray park.
