Huge Ceiling Fan Spotted at Timber Ridge Waterpark

Posted by Gavin Martin on Tue, September 01, 2009

We took the family to the Timber Ridge Lodge Water Park resort at the Grand Geneva Resort in Lake Geneva, WI. I highly recommend it to all of you folks in the Chicago suburbs and Southeastern Wisconsin looking to relax and get away in the Wisconsin vacation areas. It will save you a trip to Wisconsin Dells especially in the winter time.  Lake Geneva is a great resort City with a large lake, world class restaurants, golf courses, spas, and resorts.  Indoor water parks are very humid and they need a lot of air circulation to keep that air moving and keep it down towards the ground area. The Timber Ridge water park has multiple ceiling fans which are bigger then my entire living room. These are definitely large commercial applications that get your attention.
