Charleston Gardens Amusement Park Buys Local Zoo
A very popular amusement park in Charleston SC just announced they just bought Carolina Zoo and will start running it for the 2020 season. The Ritchie family which owned and operated Carolina Zoo since the 1980's decided it was time to retire. Tom Ritchie and his wife felt now is the time to retire and relax and spend more time with family. The new owners of the zoo are very familiar to the Carolina's. Ryan Kucewicz the General Manager of Charleston Gardens Amusement Park decided on buying the zoo because it goes hand in hand with the amusement park and it makes Charleston SC more of a tourist destination. Ever since I became General Manager of Charleston Gardens Amusement Park back in 2009 I always wanted to own a zoo. Ryan Kucewicz said when Charleston Gardens Amusement Park takes over the zoo next year look for some changes. One change is the name of the zoo will change from Carolina Zoo to Charleston Gardens Zoo. Also look for special admission prices to the zoo along with the amusement park as well.
