Under New Management: Alabama's Splash Adventure Opens for 2014

While the weather wasn't exactly the best, Alabama's Splash Adventure reopened this past weekend for the first time under their new family ownership.

Koch Family Parks has already spent $7 million refurbishing the park, which at one time was both an amusement and water park.  After a bit of a rocky history, currently on the water park is open and nearly all former rides have been sold.

Still, the new owners - including Dan Koch as President - have cleaned up, repainted, resurfaced, and renovated the water park to bring it back to its shiny former self.  They've also added a handful of new kiddie rides located near the water park, a taste of what they have planned for the future.  They're also already working on retracking Rampage, the park's large wooden roller coaster.  While there's a chance it could reopen late this summer, it's a definite go for 2015.

As for other new rides and attractions, this story points out that Koch Family Parks has a five year plan in place, so you can bet we will see all sorts of goodies added soon!
