This is a first for me, and would be something I would never want to be part of. If you were tired of being in the water (laughing harder) you would not even want to start the "mission" to get out of the pool. Holly Crap.

Would you like to be part of this exciting pool party. What if somebody pee'd!

Almost reminds me of the Wave Pool at Geauga Lake during the ACE 1988 Coaster Con. It was 102 degrees, and you could not see any water in the Wave Pool, just a bunch of "Heads"! :)
Answer my Prayers, Overbook my next Flight!

I was thinking this is what it would look like if you took Poseidon's Rage and had EVERY single person in Wisconsin in there at once.... ;)
Since I'm taking public health course, I can't imagine anyone even trying to keep that water clean... yuck!

Guests aren't allowed to swim that close to the impellers in Poseidon's Rage. Everybody has to stay at least 20 to 30 feet away.
Yeah. The waves are THAT nasty.

Yah.....that is a bunch of accidents just waiting to happen. Yikes!

Safety considerations aside, who wants to be that close to people. How many kids are peeing in that pool?

I cannot imagine if someone went under.

Thats my worst nightmare.

Was this some world record attempt?
I can hardly believe anyone would want to be in a pool like this for "fun".
(what if one of these thousands wanted to go to the restroom?)

I think that was the record attempt.
World's largest toilet.

What if you wanted out of the pool? I would flip, I mean its not like you can just swim out.

SFKK five years ago. Just nuts. Wave pools are ok but I wonder why more parks don't have big SWIMMING POOLs like Coney Island Cincy.

Good point. There are certainly a lot of swimming pool variations at water parks (lazy rivers, wave pools, play areas)...but no large calm areas where you can just swim.

I would hope it was some kind of record attempt, because even on the hottest of days I can't see that being an enjoyable experience. You couldn't get me into that kind of situation if you paid me.

If we all lived in Tokyo, our expectations regarding personal space might be a tad different... ;)

Because you can go to your local public swimming pool if that is what you want. You go to a water park for something different from the ordinary.

But if you wanted to go for a slide AND for a basic swim, you wouldn't have to drive across town. You could do it all in one place. ;)

Here in South Central PA a few of our local public pools that have several waterslides. They are pretty decent slides. They would be the equivalent to Knoebel's slides. Just about shorter in height. Not too bad for a public pool.
Several of them also have children's play areas similar to what you'd see at a waterpark. The one is very similar to the play area at Dorney with those mushroom looking water sprinklers. I am sure that the Harrisburg area isn't the only place this is happening at.

Actually, the water looks kind of brown to me...

Maybe, just for laughs... throw a unwrapped Snickers bar or Baby Ruth into the waters...
Let the chaos begin.
