Police block new slide tower at Hochheim play park

In an unfortunate incident, the recently constructed slide tower at the popular Hochheim play park had to be closed by local police. Around 12 o'clock, the accident of an adult was reported, who suffered a laceration after successful sliding. Police immediately reviewed the situation and their investigation is ongoing. All involved stakeholders have been informed and the slide tower will be enclosed with construction fencing in the short term.

The news of the temporary closure spread quickly among locals and visitors who appreciate the adventure playground as a popular destination for families and children. The new slide tower, which was only opened to the public on Friday, has been the subject of controversy on social media channels since Friday. On the family portal RheinMain4Family parents repeatedly reported injuries.

The police expressed that the safety of park visitors was the top priority, which is why an immediate closure had become necessary. Until the matter is resolved, the slide tower remains closed for the time being.
