Record-breaking Weekend at Funtown in Saco
Saco, Maine - Funtown Splashtown USA's 44th season started with a bang this weekend, breaking records all over the park.
|"If this weekend is any indication of how the summer is going to be, we will be in great shape" beamed Ken Cormier, park founder and CEO. "In the 50 years I have been in business, I have never seen a busier opening weekend".
Thousands of people descended upon the park for the Mother's Day celebration on Sunday. Saturday the park hosted over 600 music students from around Southern Maine for its annual Funtown Music Festival.
"If there was a record, we shattered it this weekend," continued Cormier. "This just helps keep the notion alive that the overall economy is improving."
The rides will be open again this weekend with 'Roll Back Rates', the same rates that were charged back in 1999. The park will be open on Thursday May 20 and Friday May 21 for Physics Day. The park is on track to break the record for number of participating schools and total number of participating students.
Sunday May 23 is Take 25 Day, which the park does in conjunction with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The park will be handing out Child ID kits and safety tips developed by the NCMEC to keep families safer.
