Have you been injured using the Tower Spiral Slide at Maggie Daley Park?
Maggie Daley Park opened on December 13, 2014, with one its main attraction being the Tower Spiral Slide. The Tower Spiral Slide stands at nearly 25 feet tall and includes three spiral sections. However, within the first two months of the Park’s opening, there were eight reported incidents of people suffering lower leg injuries, including ankle fractures and knee injuries, while using the slide.
As the number of Maggie Daley Park participants increased in the Spring and Summer of 2015, so did the number of reported lower leg injuries. This prompted an NBC News Channel 5 investigative report that ran August 20, 2015. Despite having notice that both adults and children are suffering lower leg injuries after going down Tower Spiral Slide, the slide has remained unaltered to this day.
In fact, NBC News Channel 5 also ran a follow up to their original investigate report on October 18, 2019. Please click this link to view the story: Has Maggie Daley Park Cleaned Up Its Slide Issues? Even after additional reports and injuries the slide is still unaltered and remains open.
