After more than 27 years in business, The Beach Waterpark has announced plans to close for the 2012 season.
In a press release, park officials said the closure begins immediately and is the result of a "challenging competitive and economic climate and changing patron entertainment habits."
Kings Island, which is located just across Interstate 71 from The Beach, expanding its water park for the 2012 season. 'Soak City' is a $10 million dollar expansion of Kings Island's current water park, nearly doubling in size to 33 acres.
"The Beach Waterpark management team is extremely saddened to make today's announcement," said Ralph Vilardo Jr., authorized spokesperson on behalf of The Beach Waterpark. "We have been proud to provide entertainment and employment to Southwest Ohioans for more than 27 years. Like many businesses these days, we had to make the difficult decision to close after concluding that further investment to support the business cannot be justified."
The Beach Waterpark has employed more than 15,000 people during the course of its operation. An estimated 7.5 million people have visited the park. The Beach Waterpark has operated at a loss during the past several years.
The Beach Waterpark opened in 1985 and is situated on 35 acres in Mason, Ohio, near Cincinnati and Dayton Ohio. A tropical themed park, The Beach Waterpark offered more than 50 rides and attractions to visitors.
"We are saddened to hear The Beach Waterpark will not be open this summer," said Phillip S. Smith, President and CEO of the Warren County Convention and Visitors Bureau. "Tourism is the largest industry in Warren County and as a significant attraction and major landmark in the County for more than a quarter of a century, The Beach has had a lasting impact on visitor spending which, in turn, fuels jobs and revenue for the county. We realize this was a difficult decision for the park's management and hope they can reopen in the future."
