Seven rides that were previously closed at Schlitterbahn have been deemed to be compliant and will be allowed to reopen for the 2018 season.

The Wyandotte County District Attorney’s Office, the Kansas Department of Labor, and Schlitterbahn Waterpark were working to ensure that 11 rides on the KDOL’s audit list were compliant.

On Friday, an inspector with the Kansas Department of Labor and District Attorney Mark Dupree were at the park for a review of some of those rides.

The following seven rides were found to be in “substantial compliance” with state requirements:

  1. Bahnzai Pipeline Tube Slide
  2. Black Knight Tube Slide
  3. Blitz Falls Aquaveyor
  4. Cyclone
  5. King Kaw Aquaveyor
  6. Storm Blaster
  7. Twister

Those seven rides have been approved to begin operations for the 2018 season.

The remaining four rides will reopen only when the district attorney, the DOL, and Schlitterbahn agree they are also in substantial compliance.

Schlitterbahn released the following statement: 

"Schlitterbahn Kansas City has now passed the KDOL audit review for all seven rides we submitted to the Department – we have not yet submitted the remaining four. We appreciate the patience of our fans as we address these issues. We hope this additional step has provided every assurance to our guests that we remain dedicated to providing a safe and enjoyable experience at our park."
