DARIEN CENTER, N.Y. (WIVB) — Three Darien Lake park-goers suffered minor injuries when a large drive-in movie screen tumbled into the amusement park’s wave pool.
Only hours before the screen fell, a crew installed it at the same location screens have been installed in the past for drive-in movie nights at the park. Darien Lake officials say they were able to make a quick response, with medical personnel treating minor injuries soon afterwards, and crews removing and fixing the screen.
The wave pool reopened an hour later, and the next drive-in movie night featuring “Finding Nemo” will continue as planned on Friday night.
An internal investigation is continuing into the incident.
