BOGOR, KOMPAS.com – Those who fancy a wet and wild time in defunct water parks might just want to drop by Bogor, West Java. There they might just get more than they bargain for.
All they have to do is open Twitter to get a better idea.
Twitter account @sabiladinta uploaded a video on Sunday, June 21 that showed how the pool changed. “The Fun Park Villa [on] Blok W has been bankrupt. It has changed from a swimming pool to a catfish pond,” tweeted Sabila in the 55-second video.
The video showed the murky water coming aliveand teeming with catfish jumping and feeding, a scene reminiscent of the cult 1978 horror-comedy movie Piranha and its sequels.
Twitter users seemed to be hooked to the spectacle, just as Piranha's audience were drawn to the movie's campy acting and outlandish plot.
To date, the video has been viewed more than 60,000 times, retweeted over a thousand times, and received a similar number of likes.
As indicated in the narration, the venue for this feeding frenzy is none other than the Fun Park Villa in Bogor.
Wallowing in disaster
Sabila confirmed to Kompas.com that the swimming pool has indeed gone to the catfish.
