Opening Day is Approaching

This is a question we get asked all the time.

“So what do you do when the park is closed?”

There is always work going on at the park. Our maintenance crews have been out getting the rides ready for training, inspection, and Opening Day. Here are just a few of the rides that are ready to go for Opening Day, which is May 10.

Kiddie Boats are ready!

The amount of snow this season is certainly weighing on a lot of us. As you can see here, the Grand Prix track is underneath a nice layer of snow. If you look closely, you can notice the tire barrier making a neat pattern. When the snow finally melts, what will be your first Spring activity?

Personally, I am going to take a jog without 15 lbs of outerwear on. (Think warm thoughts…)


87 days until we open!





To quote the legendary mind Isaac Newton: “what goes up, must come down.”

Every year our maintenance team takes down the rides for storage during the harsh New England winter months. If you could live in any part of the United States, where would you reside?

Closing time…


I caught this little friend resting on the exit gate of the Antique Cars during our final day of the 2013 season. 

I have typed and retyped this blog post three times, but cannot find the right words to provide a succinct synopsis for this summer. I will break it down into a list, to make things easier on myself.

1. Thanks to our season pass holders! You are a great group that make Funtown Splashtown USA an even greater place!

2. Thank you to the people who visited Old Orchard Beach and Saco during the summer. Your presence is always appreciated at the park.

2. Thanks to our returning team members! You are the pulse of our park, and we appreciate all you do for/with us.

3. Thank you to our new team members! For some of you it feels natural working here right away, but there are those of us who started at Funtown Splashtown USA without knowing the park. It can be an intimidating place, trust me I know! We are all very grateful to have you with us, and hope to see you next year!

4. Thanks to the Cormier family! Without you, none of this would exist. Truly, we cannot express our gratitude enough.

5. Thanks to our students! Without you, pre and post-season would not have been possible. You are all incredible!


If I left anyone off of this list, I apologize! The end of the year is a whirlwind.

I hope to see you all on our social media sites this off-season!
