Three water rides reopen after girl’s death
Theme park operator Merlin Entertainments has reopened three water rides which closed as a precautionary measure following the death of 11-yearold schoolgirl Evha Jannath.
The Splash Canyon ride at Drayton Manor theme park in Staffordshire remains closed after Evha fell into the water during a school trip and later died in hospital.
In a statement, Merlin said its water rapids rides at Alton Towers, Thorpe Park and Legoland Windsor reopened yesterday.
A Merlin spokesman said: “After conducting a further detailed review of our safety measures, we are confident in being able to open the rapids rides at relevant parks today.”
