"Two feet of water," Panic Park back open after 2016 floods

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

The Cedar Falls "Panic Park," is getting ready for a re-opening after dealing with the 2016 floods. 

Last year around this time, the building, along with many others in the Cedar Valley, had about two feet of water inside of it.

Because of this, Panic Park had to close for the season just a week before they were supposed to open. 

They didn't know if they would ever be able to open again. 

Panic Park actually dealt with the same fate during the floods of 2008. They knew they were able to open back up again then, and they could work hard to open up again this time.

Luckily, they were able to get a lot of things out of the building before it flooded.

After making sure the building was safe and clean, Panic Park is ready to re-open again this Friday. 

They have some new surprises this year, like the Egyptian room and scarecrow hallway.

All the money raised from Panic Park goes to Black Hawk County Conservation.

They open this Friday.

Hours: 

 Friday & Saturdays 7PM - 11PM
All other dates are 7PM - 10PM
