Candia Springs Adventure Park in Candia, N.H., is closing permanently, spurred by coronavirus measures and the impact of COVID-19 on its upcoming season.
In a statement, the owners said, “Based on our assessment and future projections of economic uncertainty, we have come to the unfortunate decision to close and not re-open for the 2020 season. The decision at this point will keep our doors closed moving forward into the future. This was a very difficult choice, however, it is clear that this is the only correct course of action available. We are tremendously saddened by this announcement, but want to provide our customers, staff, and community this information as soon as possible, so alternative plans can be made.”
In a related staffing change, Steve Coppin, Candia’s director of operations, will be moving to sister company Alpine Adventures to fill the currently vacant director of operations position there.
Candia will be working with guests who have pre-purchased tickets to refund or move their reservation to one of the park’s sister companies, Alpine Adventures or Whale’s Tale waterpark.
There is no word at this time on the company’s plans for any equipment at Candia Springs, including its waterpark and aerial adventure facilities and features.
