The zip line equipment at Splash Dayz is coming down. City Council members approved the removal of the equipment last month after several cost estimates were presented on the project.
Adventure Park Lubbock will now be the proud owner of multiple platform pieces from the park in White Settlement.
“It was the best deal we could’ve found,” Assistant City Manager Jeff James said.
The City of White Settlement Communications Manager A.C. Hall stated that early estimates for the removal of the equipment came in around $200,000 – $250,000 and purchase prices were coming in around $200,000.
“At best we had a few offers that would see us break even after paying to remove the equipment and at worse we were finding that we’d lose money on the deals,” said Hall.
Adventure Park Lubbock agreed to dismantle and remove the equipment and pay the city $7,500. They also agreed to pay for repairs if anything in the water park was damaged during the removal of the equipment.
The zip line equipment was not put in operation after the City of White Settlement took over the water park from Hawaiian Falls after they fell behind with more than $900,000 in rental payments.
Adventure Park Lubbock is a new venture that will be opening late 2017 according to their website. Proposed attractions will be bumper boats, go karts, miniature golf, ropes challenge course and 3 zip lines.
