Lincoln water park owners buy beleaguered Liquid Planet water park in Candia

CANDIA - A water park business in Lincoln bought at auction the Liquid Planet Water Park today ending the owner’s dream of trying to hold ono the property.

The new owner operates the Whale’s Tale and Alpine Adventures in Lincoln and plans to reopen Liquid Planet next spring once it does an expansion.

Managing partner Jeff Woodward said the business "remains in good shape" and believes the new ownership will make it a profitable business.

"We’ve been in the field for 30 years so we know how to make it successful," Woodward said.

The park was sold for $950,000 and includes 42 acres of real estate and two residential homes on the parcel.

Kevin Dumont chained himself to the top of the park’s water slide for 17 days drawing attention to his plight.

Dumont said he was sad at losing the business but said it was a consolation that the new owners will keep it a going concern.

The park opened in 2008; Dumont said heavy rains during the first two years got the business off to a bad start and caused him to take on too much debt.

At the time of losing the business, Dumont said he needed $1.5 million to pay off all debts.
