Well, the news is in, and with the new changes comes new management as Safari Joe is the new owner of the water park.

Matthew Estes is taking over Big Splash from the Murphy family.

He’s already added new exhibits, including Shelly and Sheldon the tortoises. And while Estes plans to add more animal exhibits, he’s taking out one of the park’s landmarks.

The Silver Bullet water slide that towers above the park is coming down.

Estes also owns an Adair wildlife rescue sanctuary, which will remain open.
