The accident happened around 1 p.m. Monday.
Five people, one reportedly a lifeguard, were injured, authorities said.
Two were briefly hospitalized, while the other three refused emergency medical attention.
All five suffered only minor injuries.
On Monday evening, Kalahari officials released the following statement:
"We are aware of the situation and take the safety and security of our guests very seriously," said a Kalahari representative in an email. "We are working closely with our internal teams and the proper authorities to gather details on what happened and will share an updated statement when we have confirmed all the facts."
Erie County Sheriff Chief Deputy Jared Oliver says the injuries appear to be minor.
"ODA does not inspect or have any oversight of HVAC systems as part of our regulations. Kalahari has shut down their pools and once they make contact with us with the intention to reopen ODA will inspect the aquatic rides for any ancillary issues," said a representative from the Ohio Department of Agriculture. The ODA oversees ride safety in the state.
The park was closed Monday following the accident.
This is a developing story and will be updated.
