Universal Studios’ Water Park Is Electric

Dozens of patrons at Universal Studios’ Volcano Bay water park were injured after the location suffered electrical malfunctions… in the water.

Universal’s Volcano Bay water theme park closed Sunday, June 2 after lifeguards and people swimming in one of the attractions reported shocks so severe they feared for their lives.

Universal admits it suffered electrical issues, confirming what guests reported.

“It’s like I ran into, I guess, an electrical field. I started experiencing the tingling and prickling burning in my legs at first I thought it was a chemical,” park goer Wendy Lee said. Lee was at the park right when it opened at 9 a.m. Eastern on Sunday. She was with her husband and 14-year-old daughter to celebrate her graduation from middle school.

What was supposed to be a day full of fun lasted only 30 minutes. According to a Universal Orlando Resort report, Lee was checked out by paramedics at 9:36 a.m. The paramedic reporting the cause of her injuries was “electric shock.”

In fairness, Universal was simply making sure the revelers were awake for their early morning swim.
