Popular Sharonville water resort reopens after 10 day shut down

SHARONVILLE, OH (FOX19) - A popular Sharonville indoor water park will reopen after a 10 day shut down by the Ohio State Fire Marshals.

Coco Key Water Resort reopens Friday at 4 p.m., after they repaired and inspected fire safety systems, the resort said.

The resort was ordered to be evacuated on Nov. 11 after a citation was delivered "due to the severity of the violations as they relate to the Ohio Fire Code," according to Ohio State Fire Marshals.

State Fire Marshals cited the fire alarm and sprinkler system were not in proper condition.

"Before anything else, I would like to apologize to our community about hindering any plans they may have had at our facility this past weekend, specifically Christina Sansone & the City Gospel Mission," said Brandon Carpenter, director of Coco Key Water Resort. "These situations are unfortunate, however safety is our number one priority and we need to use these opportunities to learn and correct."

Coco Key recently temporarily shut down in May after an inspection showed the water disinfection system was broken, according to the Ohio Department of Agriculture.

The park's disinfection systems for full-body contact aquatic devices had been partially broken since February, said the Department of Agriculture. The May inspection showed the systems are not functioning at all.
