The new owners of The Beach water park are now planning $5 million in renovations and new features before the park reopens this May. The Beach, an Adventure Landing park, had previously announced $1 million in renovations, according to parent company Adventure Holdings LLC.

I'm going to try to make it out there this year. Kings Island's waterpark is always way too crowded to enjoy.
Even with a second wave pool? That's surprising. Other than Holiday World, I can't think of many water parks that can accommodate that many people.
There were a few times this past season where it was so crowded in that waterpark, even the second wavepool was packed to the walls. They have made some great changes to the waterpark including a zero-depth entry to the lazy river which makes it load faster.
Having browsed KIC forums over the summer, it sounded like the water park was more crowded than ever with The Beach closed.
With KI hyping that they had doubled the water park in size for 2012, the amount of new stuff to do in it seemed modest. I figured it was all planned out for a 2-year project, and that 2013 would bring a new slide complex, water coaster, or some kind of exciting water attraction.
Surprisingly, nothing has been announced, and The Beach is opening back up. They had a golden opportunity to steal future customers from The Beach, and I'm not sure if an additional wave pool was enough.Last edited by Jeph, Tuesday, January 22, 2013 12:39 AM
