DRAPER, Utah — Cowabunga Bay in Draper was closed Saturday after a “severe” building fire early that morning rendered the water park “inoperable.”
Draper City Fire Chief Clint Smith told KSL that crews were called out to a possible structure fire around 2:30 a.m.
“On their arrival, they did find one of their buildings down there that did have a fire up in the attic. It did move through most of the attic space,” he said.
Crews were eventually able to distinguish the flames, but damages have been estimated between $75,000 and $100,000, according to Smith.
The fire chief added that the blaze was contained to the building and did not spread to any water slides.
“We will be temporarily closed until we can assure that all of our facilities are safe for our employees and our guests,” read a Facebook post Saturday morning from the water park.
Park officials said their phone lines are down, so anyone with questions can email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“We apologize for any inconvenience,” continued the post. “Be assured that we will be working hard to get back open so you can enjoy the best summer ever.”
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
