OCEAN CITY, N.J. - An amusement park on the New Jersey shore reopened Saturday almost two months after damage from a fire later ruled accidental.
Brian Hartley, vice president of Playland’s Castaway Cove in Ocean City, confirmed Saturday that the park reopened as scheduled at noon.
A side entrance is being used while a temporary deck is built in place of the structure at the entrance that caught fire.
The Jan. 30 blaze broke out on a Saturday morning, sending smoke billowing across the skyline, and did extensive damage to a building housing the park’s arcade, offices, and two fast-food restaurants.
Police said the building was empty at the time and no fire-related injuries were reported.
