Bell’s has announced it will shut down its amusement park in 2019 and all of the company’s remaining amusement parks will close in 2020.
The decision comes after a long battle over the future of Bell’s amusement parks that began in the early 1990s, after Bell’s board of directors decided that the company needed to take more aggressive steps to preserve its brand image, including the shutting down of its popular amusement parks.
