Welcome To White River Amusement Park
White River Opened to the public in 1994 as Green Gardens, it contained a mainstreet, a ferriswheel, a GCI woodie called Radius, an old car ride called vintage cars and a beautifull little garden area. Due to very low ammount of vistors the park closed in 2001. But an invester called NVDB investments saw a big oppurtuninty to make Green Gardens a big themepark. They Start to demolish the mainstreet and the entrance building on the winter of 2001, and they re-themed the old castle themed area to a classic thempark style entrance and mainstreet. In the park lays a small river called : the white river, the spring of this river is next to the entrance. So this was the reason why NVDB changed the name to White River Amusement park in January 2002. This was the start of an new era in the park history. February 2002 : the mainstreet and entrance as we now it today are finished. Radius the GCI coaster gets a new layout due to alot of mechincal failures in the 1998 season. The ride was made alot smoother and longer. Also the name was changed to Fury : the ride. NVDB had new plans for the garden area, they wanted to add a junior ride. And so it happend also in February 2002 a new ride was born : Tornado. Named after the unique tornado element in the ride. After this area was finished it all begin to speed up, the park was building 4 new flatrides in March. The next month was spend to make the infrastructre better around the park, Because the park is behind a small hill NVDB decides that instead of a road over the hill, to build a tunnel under the hill. Now the village of Maple Springs can come much easily to the park. And so the park opened in June 2002 as White River Amusement park.
And after that day the park have become bigger and bigger with big additions such as : Cobra (2003) an B&M floorless and a new area called : Silver Highlands with a train ride (2004). Then the park added a logflume called Sawmill creek in 2006. Then for a long period they placed nothing in the park until the end of the 2009 season. The park anounced another addition of 4 new flatrides in the silver highlands area of the park. In 2011 NVDB investments had issues with another project where they had to pay a lot of money. That caused the park to close from 2012 to 2018. NVDB investments said : If we have paid all our debts we will start investing on the park again, and we can re-open the park. In the end of december 2018, NVDB was financial stable again, and they started to work on the park again.
Now in 2019 I will show you the progress of White River Amusement park, because NVDB investments will add al lot of new attractions to the park this year!
