Update: Waterworks Park Will Be Open Wednesday After Fire Damages Maintenance Shed

Following an overnight explosion and fire Tuesday morning, Waterworks Park was closed Tuesday, but they say they’ll be open for regular business hours from 10AM to 6PM Wednesday. However, the four flume slides and the Raging River run will not be operating. Redding Fire Department was dispatched at around Midnight to the amusement park, where they found a maintenance shed on fire. The explosion had apparently been from a variety of chemicals used at the park that were improperly disposed of in a dumpster. The damage estimate is $150,000.
