Clementon Park Announces Big Wave Bay

New Jersey's Clementon Park and Splash World has announced the largest expansion in the history of their water park, Big Wave Bay.

The massive new wave pool is set to debut this Memorial Day weekend when the amusement park opens for its 105th consecutive year.  Clementon Park was purchased by an investment group led by former Six Flags executives Kieran Burke and Gary Story in late 2011.  This will mark the first large investment the team has added to the park under their ownership.

Big Wave Bay will cover 23,000 square feet and provide rolling waves that guests are sure to enjoy.  The expansion also includes new restrooms, changing rooms, and ten 20 foot shade structures for guest comfort.  Two already popular food locations will be renovated and expanded to provide better service and new menu options, and a Tiki Bar will set up shop to provide adults beverages along with a big screen television.

“The addition of Big Wave Bay marks the fifth, and most sensational, major attraction introduced at Clementon Park and Splash World in the last five years,” said David Dorman, the Park’s General Manager. “The changes have been truly transformational. If a family has not been here before, or not visited in a while, they will be wowed by improvements.”

Another perk for guests will be a new set of cabanas available for rent, to be set up on the top of the Cove Restaurant, providing views of both Big Wave Bay and Lake Clementon.

Big Wave Bay will be provided by Aquatic Development Group.  It will be located in the center of the park, between Laguna Kahuna and the Funnel Cake Factory.  The park's Samba Tower and Kite Flyer will be relocated as part of the expansion.

This sounds like a perfect addition for Clementon Lake, and hopefully just the start of even more expansions under their new ownership.
