It's certainly not a cheap park to visit at $45 admission plus parking. The one time I visited was very empty, but I remember you commenting it's usually busier.

Reasonable season pass prices create massive crowds at the water park all summer, but the ride side is usually very slow the first few hours

Cool for them. It's a park I can definitely see myself NOT ever visiting again, but that's just me. (Well, not just me among enthusiasts, but you know what I mean, lol.)

^I went to this park way back in the year 2011 and I just wasn't that impressed. It could be that the park was way crowded on the day I visited, or the fact their log flume wasn't running that day, or they only had one coaster that was too rough for me, or it could be the fact that I tried to get on their spinning balloon ride and they wouldn't let me (I went to Dorney Park on the next day and I got to ride their spinning balloon at Planet Snoopy.). I felt this park could use more rides. Well, they're getting it, but I still have no plans on returning to this park anytime soon. However, I'll go to Hersheypark and to Busch Gardens Williamsburg this year.

On the heels of an odd story last weekend where Clementon Park was closed for Guest Appreciation Day (Link), Screamscape did some digging and there's a rumor Clementon Park has closed.

While there's no official word or statement from the park, the park has suddenly deleted their Facebook and Instagram accounts. This is on top of Clementon ending their season early.

If this is true, I'm not too surprised. I visited on a sunny summer weekend two years ago and it was deserted. It was also ridiculously overpriced at $45 per person plus $20 to park. I did see the website (still up) having tickets priced at $20 for this year.

^Maybe they were appreciating their guests by not making them go to Clementon! =) Interesting though...

:lol:

There aren't many parks I actively hate, but this is a rare exception.

Even though this park has been within a 10 minute drive for me the last 6 years or so, I could never bring myself up to actually going there knowing its reputation. TBH, there are much better uses for that land.

Great Adventure, Sesame Place and Clementon are all within an hours drive from my house and out of the three Clementon is technically the closest mileage-wise. Its about a 40 minute drive vs 45 mins for Sesame or 55 mins for Great Adv.

Still, I could never bring myself to go over there thanks to that ridiculous gate price, all the negative reviews of that coaster and the park overall. No regrets.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

Usually it's a sad day in the amusement park world when a park is closed with no word on when it will open, but I don't feel that way with Clementon Park, especially when they added four new rides this year. Perhaps the only hope that park has left is that someone else would buy it, fix it up, add a ton of new stuff, and run that park much better than before. Otherwise, all those rides would need to find new homes.
