Roseland Waterpark in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York has announced it will not reopen this season.

In a statement, the operators of the park said reopening this summer or autumn was not feasible, and the site was to remain closed for the 2020 season.

Dan Fuller, Roseland Waterpark’s general manager, said: “We understand that we are all living in a difficult time and that tough decisions have to be made. The communication that Roseland Waterpark has received from the State of New York is that the park will remain closed until the Governor rescinds the Executive Order pertaining to amusement parks and waterparks.

“With limited guidance and uncertainty surrounding the date the Executive Order will be rescinded, Roseland Waterpark has decided that operating this summer is not feasible,” Fuller added.

Season passes for 2020 will be rolled over to 2021, officials have confirmed.
