Middletown, OH -- It's official Americana Amusement Park will reopen for the 2002 season under a new name, The Great American Amusement Park At Lesourdsville Lake. The park has sat empty for the past two seasons, having last run in the summer of 1999. An official opening date has not been set, but officials hope to have the park ready for Memorial Day.
The owners of the property have hired Tom Pugh, better known in the industry for Pugh Shows, to manage the amusement park.
