Indiana Beach marketing director Don Hurd says the plan is to put a 'new light, some sparkle' back in place at Monticello, Indiana's attraction.
California-based Apex Parks Group bought Indiana Beach last fall. Since then, the grounds are being spruced up. Millions of dollars have been spent to restore the 90-year-old theme park.
And besides all the cosmetic work, White County Commissioner President John Heimlich said the work has included rebuilding the theme park's reputation....as a fun community place, a family-fun place.
Everything's getting a make-over before the park re-opens in May.
Hurd points out, 'were not just a tourist fun-place, we offer summer jobs. The park needs to fill 900 positions and wants to hire locally.
Both Heimlich and Hurd believe the new park will stimulate the economy.
A new theme for the park is "Where Families Flock for Fun."
The park plans to open for its 90th anniversary season May 27.
Employees are needed. A job fair is planned Saturday (3/5) from 9 am 'til 4 pm at IB Crow Campground in Monticello.
