The Beach Plans Expansion for 2014 Summer Season

Ohio's The Beach water park, located just around the corner from Kings Island, will reopen in 2014 with new improvements and additions that will make a day at the park even more inviting.  The Beach reopened in 2013 after sitting closed the prior year, and spent $5 million to do so.

Above is one of last year's additions, a brand new kiddie play area (complete with tipping bucket, of course) named Big Creek Beach.  Much of the park was also painted and heavily renovated to be like brand new, breathing life back into the property.

The park has now announced more fun for 2014, including a two person zip line that will take riders on a 600 foot journey directly over the park's wave pool.  Without many details available on the slide, the Beach will also build a four lane mat racing slide.  The mat racing slide will stretch 400 feet long and be a part of the $1.5 million expansion. (side note - this is the third mat racing slide announcement this week!)

The Beach also wants to move into more winter operations, planning a large snow tubing hill that will operate starting in November.  Too bad they missed out on this terribly snowy winter!

The Beach is owned by Adventure Holdings, LLC, which operates many family entertainment centers in the U.S.
