    There's a lifeguard right at the splashdown. Either they neglected to include that tidbit that the lifeguard helped, or someone was really bad at their job and should be fired.

    Awesome, thanks for sharing!!! He seems anxious about it since I mentioned the one slide having a 150 lb weight limit but like I can't go on that either dude lol. I'll try and keep updated with this link from now until we go.

    I mean, there's not much room to do anything else there. It's really tucked into a small space. I'd imagine they're looking into how to fix it.

    That would be my bet. You could probably add a couple of those toilet bowl type slides that you drop out the middle of easily enough but they always seem to have people hurting themselves and that’s another headache they don’t need.

    I'd argue at the very least it just simply shouldn't be open while they figure something out, however. This is something that could've been fixed in a few weeks if they just took out the beach and extended the runoff.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Uni is currently going back and forth with ProSlide on who should pay to fix it.

    I hate to lose the Mat Slides though. They are super fun.

    They're always a fun addition but more importantly, they add variety.

    Except most people can't ride them right now. So the real question becomes do they try to fix the mess or put something new here and then add a new mat racer when they expand the park?

    I mean, I'd assume that fixing it would be cheaper than replacing it.

    Is there enough room to expand the splash down? It doesn't look there's much space there.

    Sure. They'd have to get rid of the beach/seating right there, but that's not the end of the world.

    Just posting the 2 ideas to fix from the boards when the weight change was first reported.

    Are those toilet bowl slides on top of Pungas? Sure they weren’t there when we went early 2018!??

    I even looked in the VB website! Also I couldn’t tie that new slide, with everyone saying there’s been no expansion
