Company to lease The Beach in 2013

Beach water park

MASON, OH (FOX19) - A closed Warren County waterpark has a new operating group.

On Wednesday, The Beach announced they will be operated by Adventure Holdings LLC starting in 2013.

Adventure Holdings LLC operates a group of 17 family entertainment centers located in Florida, Kansas, Missouri, New York, North Carolina, Ohio and Texas.

Hank Woodburn, the founder and president of Adventure Landing, plans to rename the park The Beach at Adventure Landing.

Back in March, The Beach announced they would not open for the 2012 season.

This angered many people who had advance purchased 2012 season passes.

This year's season pass holders will be contacted by the new operator with details regarding season pass redemption prior to the opening of the 2013 season.

Parties have signed a lease with an option to purchase.

In the meantime, pass holders can visit for ongoing announcements and updates.

The Beach had been in business for 27 years.
