Four men were arrested for breaking into Splish Splash Waterpark in Calverton, where they made a viral video of them riding BMX bicycles on the slides while the park was closed on Thanksgiving, Riverhead Town Police said.

Brian Chliek, 34, of Bayport, 22-year-old William Perry of West Islip, 25-year-old Jonathan Nemecek and 19-year-old Anthony Panza, both of Lindenhurst, were charged with trespassing. Police said another four suspects are wanted in connection with the incident.

“Hopefully we don’t get arrested,” one of the suspects said at the beginning of the 15-minute Go Pro video posted on YouTube, which has been viewed more than 6 million times in two weeks, as of this post.

The video shows the group climbing a barbed wire fence and biking through several slides before being chased out by a park employee.

Riverhead town police detectives are continuing the investigation and ask anyone with information on this case to call them at 631-727-4500.
