MONTICELLO, Ind. (WTHR) – Fans of Indiana Beach are once again dealing with disappointment.

Since the announced closure of Indiana Beach last week, fans had hoped someone would buy the nearly 100-year-old park.

Florida based Fun Spot America Theme Parks says they received an invitation to visit the park and review the facilities.

Officials said they saw a park with rich history and heritage, that has created memories for generations.

The company says purchasing Indiana Beach or any park is not in their current master plan.

The company says they plan to pray for the proper owners and operators to become visible so that Indiana Beach may continue to serve their guests and community for many more generations.

"We are honored to have been asked by so many loyal Indiana Beach supporters to purchase the park and keep the legacy of great rides and family memories created by the Spackman family alive. We recently received an invitation to visit the park, review the facilities and attractions at Indiana Beach Boardwalk Resort.

During the past few days, for some, waiting for an answer may have seemed like an eternity. We saw a park with rich history and heritage, that has created memories for generations. Unfortunately purchasing Indiana Beach or any park is not in our current master plans. We are going to pray for the proper owners and operators to become visible so that Indiana Beach may continue to serve their guests and community for many more generations.

We encourage the efforts to have Indiana Beach reopen. It is a treasure that should be allowed to delight families for generations to come. We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of sincere wishes and wonderful family messages from so many loyal Indiana Beach fans, we are with you in the hope that there is an organization that can share your passion and dreams for the future of Indiana Beach."
