KEANSBURG, NJ - As the state’s oldest amusement park, dating back to 1905, Keansburg Amusement Park is New Jersey. It symbolizes the rich history of New Jersey, and why millions flock to its shore each summer. And now it is a symbol of New Jersey’s resilience and determination. Keansburg Amusement Park is the definition of “Jersey Strong.”

The Park suffered severe and extensive damage from Hurricane Sandy. Located on the waterfront, the park completely flooded after a flood wall berm broke early in the storm. The extent of the damage was unthinkable; many thought rebuilding was not possible. Game stands were ripped apart like tin foil. The Wildcat, their famous roller coaster, was buried under five feet of sand. Arcade games and kiddie rides dating from the 1930s were carried over a half mile away.


But for the Gehlhaus Family – the same family that built the park back in 1905 – rebuilding was never a question. They know how important the amusement park is to the millions of families and kids of all ages that have visited over the last 108 years. And they have rebuilt in the wake of hurricane devastation before – three times! Hurricanes in 1944, 1953, and Hurricane Donna in 1960 reduced the boardwalk to toothpicks, but they rebuilt each time. The Gehlhaus Family knows challenge must be faced with determination.

Hurricane Sandy left over 70 percent of Keansburg – a blue-collar town on the Raritan Bay – under water. Several of their tireless employees lost their homes and still showed up to work the very next day and every day since. They showed up because of their pride in Keansburg Amusement Park. They are truly an inspiration to us all.

The outpouring of support from volunteers has been incredible. Jersey Cares, Bank of America, and the New Jersey chapter of American Coaster Enthusiasts are just a few of the groups that are helping Keansburg Amusement Park rebuild. They’ve even had volunteers from as far as the Shenandoah Valley! They are so grateful for the time and hard work of all their volunteers and those supporting this massive rebuilding effort.

Please be sure to check out the amusement park's amazing progress on their Facebook page, “Keansburg Amusement Park and Runaway Rapids Waterpark” and be sure to visit them this summer! And as always, check our their website for the latest deals and coupons: www.keansburgamusementpark.com
