Amusement park, new beach-themed restaurant celebrate openings

(Foley, Alabama) – After a month of sprucing up, Team Member training and new improvements, OWA’s amusement park will reopen its gates for the year this Saturday, Feb. 8 at 11am.

The reopening will be commemorated with guests counting down the seconds at the Park entrance and entering under a show of colorful streamers and a Mardi Gras-themed band along the gate’s catwalk. The first 100 guests to enter the Park will receive a free, commemorative souvenir cup filled with fun surprises and free gifts!

“The entire staff has worked hard this past month to get ready for opening, so everyone is extremely excited to see guests on our rides for the first time this year,” said Kristin Hellmich, OWA’s Director of Marketing/PR said. “We take a lot of pride in the safety, cleanliness and creating memories for our guests. We appreciate everyone’s patience each year as we take a little time to refresh for the upcoming season.”

If guests did not have a chance to experience all of the exciting additions last spring—including the new, indoor Mystic Mansion attraction—now is the perfect time to make plans for an upcoming visit. The Park’s free Non-Rider Entry is also the ideal way to make sure the entire family has a great time. Those wishing not to partake in any attractions are welcome to enter the amusement park completely free of charge. Riders now receive wristbands in order to tell them apart from non-riders.

In addition to the amusement park opening for 2020, Lucy’s Retired Surfer’s Bar & Restaurant will also officially open its doors to the public on Feb. 8. This Saturday is bound to be a wonderful day for everyone in the family! Head out to OWA for thrilling rides, unique foods and genuinely fun times all around.
