Holiday World mishap sends dozens to hospital
Written by Robert Niles
Not a great week for attractions in the Midwest. Following yesterday's news of a critical head injury that led to the closing of Kings Island's Son of Beast comes word that a water park accident at Southern Indiana's Holiday World sent 42 visitors to the hospital over the weekend.Tweet
Too much of bleach and chemicals in the park's Bahari River filled the area with noxious fumes, sickening visitors. Some were taken by ambulance to an area hospital, others drove on their own, others were treated at the scene. Everyone's been released and the ride has since reopened.
Also: It looks like part of the Mark Twain Riverboat caught fire during Fantasmic at Disneyland last night. It appears to have been quite small, endangered no one and quickly put out. Here's a picture.
