Dangerous, crowded, disorganized, rude staff

Full review

8 members of my family went tubing. There is a 20 ft hill at the bottom meant to stop the tubes with a steep cliff and trees over the hill. They have a couple of staff standing on the ledge of the hill that batt people down if possible which is 1) not safe for staff and 2) very poor methodology. Why there is not a net is beyond me. 4 members of my family jumped the hill and FELL DOWN THE CLIFF. 2 sustained head injuries and 1 was knocked unconscious. 1 broke their arm and sustained full body scratches and bruises. My 6 year old niece thankfully got the least injured but still had a bruised back, bottom and legs. The staff did not come to help, instead they laughed. I had to figure out where my family was myself as to me they had disappeared by the time I got to the bottom of the tubing hill. I myself had to ask for medical assistance. The first aid staff treated us very very poorly. When I asked what the procedure was this was the reply I got which was preceded by more laughter “What do you think, I got a doctorate or an X-ray machine in the back? If you need assistance you might wanna go to the hospital. They look fine, they can walk.” REALLY??!? My family is Venezuelan but speak perfect English. Perhaps this was discrimination as I would hope not all guests get this type of treatment. After, they made them get back conveyor belt to go back up which is ridiculous. When we got up we went to try and talk to someone else inside the ticketing window. They would not give us a refund and blamed changing weather conditions. PS, the weather had not changed. And if it did and was then dangerous, why not shut down at least that lane? They would not give us any information, would not let us talk to someone in charge (of course more laughter) and ultimately, ended up shutting the window on me after I said “if this was your family, you wouldn’t be acting this way.” I have never encountered such a rude staff especially with a guest who was just knocked unconscious and bleeding out the head is standing there with his 2 young children balling their eyes out. What’s more is that they did not close that tubing lane after this incident. This happened on February 21, 2021 at approximately 6:20 pm. I would really like to know if anyone had an incident afterwards, I’d be willing to bet on it as it was the most disorganized, dangerous resort I’ve been to. DO NOT GO HERE IF YOU VALUE SAFETY!!! I could keep going on all the crazy things I saw in my short 30 minutes on that tubing hill. I really hope they get more organized, implement better safety standards, and def get a better non-racist staff!
