WESTERLY, RI (WLNE) - After 40 years in business, Water Wizz in Westerly will be closing its doors at the end of the 2019 summer.

In a Facebook post the park cited the increasing cost to maintain the park’s aging infrastructure, the increasing cost to operate a small seasonal business, and the financial impact of 2012’s "Superstorm Sandy" as factors leading up to the owner’s decision to close the park.

Water Wizz has been a family owned and operated park since its opening in 1979.
