A Rhode Island water park will shut after 40 years in enterprise.
Water Wizz of Westerly, positioned in Rhode Island, will shut for good after the 2019 season concludes on Labor Day, the corporate introduced Wednesday on Facebook. The family-owned and operated park has been open since 1979.
“An aging infrastructure, the ever-increasing cost to operate a small, seasonal business, and still recovering from significant financial impact of Superstorm Sandy have all factored into owner Mike Kells difficult decision to close the park,” the water park wrote.
“The Water Wizz family is humbled and grateful for your patronage,” the corporate wrote. “If you have the chance, stop by to get those last slides in before Labor Day, and share your Water Wizz memories with us.”
The announcement prompted a Cape Cod water park with the same identify to put up the next on Facebook:
