The grand opening of the $43 million Wave water park is making a splash in the news for all the wrong reasons.
A young boy decided to try the ‘Emerald Plunge’ slide and got injured when he slid right on out of it and onto concrete. Thankfully, he wasn’t seriously injured.
“He got up immediately and as any boy would be, he was stunned,” Dublin Assistant City Manager Linda Smith said.
Aside from a few scrapes and scratches he was fine.
The park closed the slide after the incident indefinitely and spokeswoman Shari Jackman said they are “reevaluating that slide.”
No police or fire were called to the scene, park officials said, because the parents declined and were going to have the boy checked out on their own.
