Delgrosso’s cancels 2020 season

Tipton, Pennsylvania, USA

May 15, 2020 – DelGrosso’s Amusement Park and Laguna Splash water park will remain closed for 2020, according to the park’s Facebook page. The post states that the foremost reason for staying closed is the safety of their employees and guests. The park office closed to visitors on March 19 and was anticipated to reopen to guests on April 6. As a smaller, family owned park with less resources than the larger park chains, the decision is understandable.

“It is with deep regret, that the Board of Directors of the DelGrosso Family of Companies announces the cancellation of its 2020 Summer Park Season due to the many concerns resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic,” the post reads.

“The uncertainty of when large attractions such as DelGrosso’s Park would actually be permitted to open also played a significant role,” according to the Facebook post. “This delay would only be compounded by social distancing protocols, capacity restrictions, and supply chain interruptions. All of these obstacles would be creating a fun, safe, and memorable guest experience, like we have done for decades, very difficult.”

Season pass holders have two options – either the 2020 season ticket will be automatically rolled over to 2021, which requires no communications, or a refund request will be honored. Season pass holders will also be given a $25 food credit, if they allow the pass to roll over to next year.
