CANDIA (AP) — A waterpark that was auctioned off after its owner chained himself to a slide tower is preparing to re-open for the season.
Candia Springs, formerly known as Liquid Planet, was sold in December to the owners of another New Hampshire waterpark, Whale's Tale. The company says it spent several hundred thousand dollars on improvements and expansion, including an adventure course with ziplines.
Previous owner Kevin Dumont spent 17 days atop the waterslide trying to attract attention and investors to save the business. The state had temporarily shut down part of the park last summer due to high levels of bacteria, and said Dumont had built two slides without a required review.
The new owners say two of the park's four slides are opening this season. Opening day is June 15.
