Incidents[edit]

On June 2, 1997, the Banzai Pipeline collapsed after students piled into the water slide in an attempt to break a school record. The collapse of the water slide resulted in 30 injures and the death of a 17 year old female.[1] It was stated that the slide experienced weight forces three times greater than what it was designed for. This incident was featured on an episode of Dateline.[2]
