For the first time in decades the fun has dried up at a Salt Lake City waterpark. Raging Waters, recently known as Seven Peaks, never opened this summer and residents wonder if it will ever reopen.
It used to be a mecca of summertime fun but now Raging Waters is an overgrown eyesore and the site of two raging fires this summer.
Tallgrass and dry weeds near the slides ignited on July 23rd but Salt Lake City fire crews were able to save the structures. Less than two weeks later, on August 4, flames tore through the park’s vacant office.
Fire department investigators are looking into whether homeless squatters in the building started the blaze. So, is the abandoned waterpark a hazard?
