MACON, Ga. — Sandy Beach Water Park at Lake Tobesofkee in Macon is closing for the season, according to a post on their Facebook page.
They cited mechanical issues and a staffing shortage as the reason for the early closure.
The start of the season was also delayed because of mechanical issues. They were not able to open until June 3.
In 2021, staffing shortages caused multiple closures to the water park throughout the summer.
Matt Satterly, with the company that manages the park, StandGuard Aquatics, said two of the three big attractions are down.
The splash pad has a ruptured tank, and the wave pool is down too. He said the company that makes the part to fix the wave pool won't be out until late this month or early next month to assess the problem.
They have also discussed closing the park once schools in the area have gone back in the past because there's not much use from the public. He said that, in combination with the mechanical issues, were the reasons for closing.
