Buried deep in the Wikipedia article is this

Quote:
However as of December 2018, the park is listed on the website of a law firm specialising in amusement park injuries, which claims: "We have successfully gone up against all major water parks in the United States including, but not limited to [this park]"
I suspect there was an injury claim, and even if it wasn't that serious and was settled out of court, the insurance companies got spooked and the park couldn't get coverage.
