Police Investigate NY Water Park Break-In After BMX Video Goes Viral

A group of BMX bike riders who broke into a Long Island water park on Thanksgiving to ride the slides may have landed themselves in hot water.

The Riverhead Police Department said it is now investigating after a GoPro video of the group jumping the fence at the water park and riding all over the slides went viral.

Splish Splash park managers said some of the slides were damaged by the bike riding. 

In the video, the bike riders can be seen jumping the barbed-wire fence of the park one after another, riding down the slides at full speed and doing tricks. 

Since BMX rider Billy Perry posted the video on Youtube, it has been viewed more than 3.8 million times. 

The Riverhead Police Department said Wednesday that there was an investigation into the matter, but no arrests had been made.
