A citizens group that has repeatedly fought attempts to further develop Frank G. Bonelli Regional Park is making waves again, this time to prevent the popular Raging Waters amusement park from expanding. In recent years, Raging Waters, a 50-acre water-slide attraction in the northwest corner of the 2,000-acre Bonelli Park, has been drawing huge crowds on peak summertime weekends.

The county Board of Supervisors on Tuesday unanimously approved a compromise expansion plan for the Raging Waters theme park that it says will protect the habitat of the endangered coastal California gnatcatcher and curb development within county parkland. Under the terms of the compromise, 75% of the Frank G. Bonelli Regional County Park will remain free of any construction to protect the bird's habitat.

Looking up at the 280 feet of fiberglass and steel that make up a water toboggan ride called High EXtreme, it suddenly occurred to me. Maybe I could write this story without having to actually go on the ride. The newest attraction at San Dimas' Raging Waters--opening today--consists of 600 feet of twisting flumes and sheer drops that shoot riders down headfirst on foam mats at speeds up to 35 mph.

Authorities are seeking murder charges against a 17-year-old Fontana boy in connection with the weekend beating death of a teen-ager at Raging Waters amusement park in San Dimas. Robert Livingston Jr., 16, of West Covina, never regained consciousness after the Friday night attack, in which he was punched until he began having seizures and fell into a coma, said Sheriff's Detective Robert Taylor.

Nature had been sending raging waters across Southern California all week, but there wasn't much around Saturday at Raging Waters in San Dimas. No tides ripped through the drained Vortex ride. The snack shops weren't open, and the Typhoon Lagoon was a dry skeleton of a water slide. But you would have thought it was a hundred-degree day in August: a queue of more than 2,000 eager teenagers snaked single-file around the waterless San Dimas water park. Some had arrived as early as 7 a.m.

When Carla Lambert and Sean Raymond got married last weekend, they really took the plunge--270 feet. Actually, they took The Vortex, spiraling twin water slides complete with fog, wind and pulsing lights at Raging Waters theme park. "We just wanted to have a really fun wedding," said the 40-year-old groom. "We didn't want to do the traditional boring thing on a Sunday afternoon."

Raging Waters theme park is a step closer to winning approval for expansion plans that include nine more acres of water slides, much to the dismay of some environmentalists.
