Wet n Wild

A woman is suing Wet 'n' Wild on the Gold Coast for $400,000 after she got stuck in a Water slide.

The 30-year-old got trapped halfway through the new Aqua Loop slide last year.

She says she was terrified another rider would ram her and in a panic pulled herself up through an emergency escape hatch.

She claims in doing that, she suffered serious shoulder injuries and suffers ongoing mental issues.

Her lawyers have lodged writs for 21 thousand dollars in medical costs, 250 thousand dollars for loss of income and a further 85 thousand dollars for ongoing care.


Water customers still overcharged

Water WATER BUNGLE: Melbourne Water will continue overcharging customers until the Wonthaggi desalination plant is finished next February. The company says says the extra money has already been factored in to its latest five-year financial plan.

  • So what was the problem? Getting wet or getting wild?

  • Another person blaming someone or something for an accident. Whether it was her body size or a fault with the water slide, it is a funpark where participants pay for the gratitude of fun and adventure at "their own risk" which is displayed very clearly at the entrance of every funpark. I am sure the venue staff took all due diligence in helping this lady out whilst putting their own life at risk. "suck it up" and "get on with life" take ownership!
