Horrifying footage caught the moment a waterslide exploded into flames at a theme park in Gothenburg, Sweden.

In clips shared on social media on Monday 12 February 2024, flames could be seen tearing through the structure, sending a huge plume of thick, toxic black smoke trailing into the sky at Oceana Waterworld.

The theme park, which is situated at the popular Liseberg amusement complex, was set to open later this year and had subcontractors working at the site when the fire broke out.

In a statement, Liseberg said: “The fire started at one of the water rides outside the building and then spread to the entire building.”

As a result of the fire, a nearby hotel and office facilities were evacuated and the public were told to stay away from the site.

Police spokesperson August Brandt told local media: “It is important that the public stays away from the site.”

As of yet, it’s not known what caused the fire. A spokesperson for NCC, the general contractor of the site, told SVT: “We don’t know anything for sure, but we believe that the fire broke out in connection with a work step.”

Firefighter Björn van der Kaay told Swedish media: “We know that there are fires in water slides, among other things, but we don’t know how it started.”
