Re: Wild Rivers Water Park Demolition Pics

I am rather sad about this park finally giving the demolition crew the "OK" to destroy this park. I do like demolition and blowing stuff up but to see this park go like this is rather sad. I really enjoyed this park as a kid and teenager but I don't think I visited it in the past 7 years. I hope Wild Rivers plans on putting in something awesome to take place. I wonder what the slides would feel like if you went down them now?

So, is it true that Wild Rivers will be reopening in a new location summer 2013 (as it says on their website)? If they do, where do you guys think the park will be located at? As metrock was saying, they were looking at land by the old marine base, is there any other land they can get to build a new Wild Rivers, or whatever they decide to call the new park.

But either way it is really sad to see this park finally go. Even though I only went there once, it was one of the best water parks in Southern California, it easily beat Knott's Soak City in Orange County, to me at least.

I've never been there but it looked like a cool place to check out, especially some of the old school slides and underground slides. It's a shame to see a place of enjoyment go, only for more housing to built to accommodate our already overpopulated state. I wonder if this new Wild Rivers will have the same feel as the old one, especially with the lack of the old slides built on the ground, lined with the blue rubbery coat.

Doubtful. They haven't signed a deal to move to the Great Park yet.

also what is sad is that this park had the scariest most intense slide ever built called The Edge they had to build a platform so people could watch the crazy few who dared ride the slide with a 40ft 45 degree drop people would catch massive air when they came flying out of that thing I have looked all over and can not find pics of the slide at all and if you go way back like 1995 both sides had the huge drops if anyone has pics of those slides please post them

For all you west coasters who need a bombay blaster fix come to NY we still got the same ride same name and everything at Water Safari in Old Forge http://www.watersafari.com/attractions/index.cfm?fn=Bombay_Blasters I think the parks may have been designed by the same people as they have aton of similar rides.

I just stopped by there last week and it was quite a sad, desolate piece of property :P

It was great while it lasted
I've stayed up for 28 hours straight
