About PlayFountain

PlayFountain is innovation devised by Wim Hoeks. Wim also founded a company named Ice-World. Now ice and water are offered to entertain crowds of all ages.

How PlayFountain was born

During a visit with his wife to an art fair they were relaxing on a terrace enjoying the sun. Next to the terrace there was a regular water fountain and because of the warm weather children were playing and cooling down in the water while their parents were having a refreshing drink.

Wim was watching this water spectacle and saw that there were electricity cables from the light on the surface of the fountain and that the water was dirty. A very unsafe way of cooling down, but it triggered his creative mind. The first spark of wat later became a highly entertaining and interactive water attraction was lit.


A water and an ice World

In the past Wim already invented a patented aluminum system that is used to make ice rinks and founded a company named Ice-World. Ice-World is the worldwide leader when it comes to portable ice-skating rinks.
