Parks Charleston Gardens Amusement Park

You've done a really nice job integrating all the rides and attractions into the scenery.

Bandit looks like a lot of fun! Are you planning on releasing it on the workshop?
 
I do plan on releasing it on the Steam Workshop right now I'm working on a new section of my park which will take some time. Thanks for the kind words. Have any suggestions or improvements you think the park might need?

Charleston Gardens Amusement Park was pretty crowded this weekend with the nice weather. Charleston Gardens Amusement Park is now only open on weekends now through October. Hurricane Florence is in sight and headed straight toward Charleston Gardens Amusement Park. The exact track of the hurricane is still unknown at this time. I will keep you all updated as the hurricane gets closer.

Hello All
It is now the off season here at Charleston Gardens Amusement Park. The park is only open on weekends now until the end of October. Our annual Pumpkin and Food Festival is going on now until October 28th. As you all know our river rapids ride was removed at the end of the regular season. As you can see the land where it once stood has been cleared. This is known as Project 2020. I wonder what can be coming to this corner of the park. A announcement will be made soon on what is coming.

Also our new section for 2019 Old Charleston is coming along. We should be starting construction on our wooden flying turns coaster called Crazy Planes next week.

Many of our guests were wondering if our Grand Carousel will be making a return to Charleston Gardens Amusement Park. Well I have some good news. Our 1960 Grand Carousel will be making a return in 2019. More info to come. Our smaller carousel will be moved to our new section of the park Old Charleston in 2019. As you see below our small carousel has already been removed and the ground work for our Grand Carousel has begun.

Just a quick update before the holidays. Our 1960 Grand Carousel at Charleston Gardens Amusement Park was just installed today after being restored. The location where our grand carousel is now was where our mini carousel once was. We moved our mini carousel to our new section of the park called Old Charleston. I think our guests will really enjoy riding this all time classic which has been at Charleston Gardens Amusement Park since 1974. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all of us here at Charleston Gardens Amusement Park.
