San Jose’s Raging Waters, a beloved refuge for families to escape the South Bay’s sizzling summer heat, will permanently shutter after 38 years of operation.
“Raging Waters San Jose is closed for the season and will not be reopening in 2024,” a Facebook message posted on Wednesday afternoon from the company reads. “We are thankful for the San Jose community and for our outstanding Team Members for helping us bring Northern California’s Largest Water Park to life for nearly four decades. Thank you for all the wonderful memories, San Jose!”
The reason for the closure was not immediately known. A spokesperson for the water park did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Located in the eastern part of San Jose, Raging Waters was located next to Cunningham Lake and featured a 350,000-gallon wave pool on a 23-acre site, according to the company’s website.
Without Raging Waters, San Jose is left with no other large-scale water park in the entire city.
This is a developing story and will be updated.
