SPRING, TX – A chemical leak at Six Flags Hurricane Harbor Splashtown sent dozens of people to the hospital on Saturday, reports MSN.

At around 2:30 p.m., a lifeguard and several guests began experiencing respiratory problems.

The park then evacuated all of its customers in order to perform tests on the water and air.  The tests found that the water was made up of approximately 10-15 percent bleach and 35 percent sulfuric acid.

Officials with Six Flags said the park will be closed for at least two days so an investigation can be conducted and a cause for the leak determined.
