Accidents at Water Parks are also common and easily preventable. Steps can be slippery and dangerous due to black algae and lack of proper maintenance. The most common accidents at Water Parks are user’s body hitting something, collisions of two or more riders, tubes flipping over, and loading and unloading incidents. When the levels of Chlorine are not properly regulated by their operators, people have even gotten sick from high levels of bacteria in the water. Riders can also get seriously injured while going down a huge drop slide and unable to protect their crotch area experiencing a “Douche Injury,” which is painful and sometimes causes permanent injuries. The owners and operators of Water Parks are in the best position to protect users from these obvious and well known dangers of serious injury and death.
