One of New Jersey's oldest theme parks is for sale.  According to nj.com, the 112-year old Clementon Park, located near Berlin, closed a week early this year.  In addition, a festival in the park that was scheduled to happen Oct. 19 has been cancelled.

A representative for the park told nj.com that there is a possibility that the park, along with it's water park, Splash World, would be sold.

The park's website says that it is "owned by Premier Parks, led by former Six Flags CEO Kieran Burke, and boasts 29 rides and water attractions including a 23,000 square-foot wave pool."

Clementon Park "first opened in 1907 and is among the oldest continuously operating amusement parks in the country."  According to wikipedia, since opening in 1907, the park has had just 4 owners:

  • New Jersey Assemblyman Theodore B. Gibbs (and the Gibbs family after Theodore's death);
  • Abram Baker (and his son after Abram's death);
  • Adrenaline Family Entertainment
  • Premier Parks

Screamscape.com, which is a website dedicated to theme parks, says fans of Clementon Park are worried that if it cannot be sold, that it will be permanently shut down.
