The DreamWorks Water Park in New Jersey’s American Dream Mall will remained closed at least through Wednesday following a frightening incident Sunday when a decorative helicopter fell from the ceiling into a swimming pool. At least four people suffered minor, non-life-threatening injuries, according to New Jersey State Police, with one taken to a nearby hospital for treatment and the others treated at the scene.
The 8.5-acre indoor water park, located within the American Dream Mall in East Rutherford, New Jersey, adjacent to the Nickelodeon Universe American Dream park, opened on Oct. 1, 2020, after several delays. Billed as the largest indoor water park in the United States, the DreamWorks attraction includes themed areas featuring Shrek, Kung Fun Panda and Madagascar characters.
