Chinese Water Park Tsunami! Crazy Video Of A Wave Pool Gone Amuck!

A Wave Pool Turned Dangerous!

This video is being shared all over the internet, after a gentle wave pool suddenly had a “Tsunami”!

It happened at the Yulong Shuiyun Water Amusement Park, in the city of Longjing in China’s northeastern Jilin Province.

The Water Amusement Park has a wave pool, which they call the “Tsunami Pool.”

But no one expected it to live up to its name!

Here is the video:

44 guests were injured, including three who suffered broken ribs or legs.

As SoraNews24 reported:

The Longjiang city government has denied early rumors that operator error was to blame, and is instead saying that its initial findings show that a power cut damaged the Tsunami Pool’s electronic equipment and caused a malfunction, though it’s not currently clear how a loss of power had the end result of making the machine-produced waves larger than intended.

The park was closed for a day for an inspection and investigation, but is reportedly now open for business again.

Wow. China is known for all kinds of wild parks and attractions, like this one:

Ultimately more than 40 people were treated for a variety of minor injuries, but happy to read that few people were seriously injured by this dangerous tsunami wave!

  1. Madness! Poor folks that were just there to enjoy the waves and relax! 😦

  2. What a strange and horrible thing to happen, John. We are going to Hungry in early September and I know you were there not long ago and shared a few restaurant posts. If possible, could you share the links here again so we can look those restaurants up?

  3. Wow this is crazy! You just never know when something could go wrong. Thanks for sharing, glad no one was fatally injured.

  4. Yikes! Maybe they should have chosen a different name for the ride!

  5. A power cut? What a lame excuse. It is lucky that nobody died.
    Best wishes, Pete.
