After an accident with seven injured at a tower diving attraction in Europa-Park in Rust near Freiburg, the neighboring water ride attraction "Atlantica SuperSplash" is back in operation. "The boats are driving again," said a spokeswoman for the largest amusement park in Germany on Tuesday. The park is open as planned.

According to the police, five artists and two visitors were injured in the incident. Three acrobats were taken to the hospital to have their injuries checked. Park and police spokeswomen were initially unable to say how they were doing on Tuesday.
