Clementon, NJ (February 29, 2012) - Clementon Park and Splash World announced today the largest expansion in the water park’s history including the addition of the 23,000-square foot Big Wave Bay wave pool. This new massive attraction starts making waves this Memorial Day Weekend when the Park opens its gates for its 105th consecutive operating season.

Clementon Park and Splash World was acquired in November 2011 by an investor group led by former Six Flags executives Kieran Burke and Gary Story. At the time of the acquisition the new owners promised significant improvements in time for the 2012 season.

“We are thrilled to be bringing such a large, spectacular, family-friendly attraction to Clementon Park and Splash World so soon after acquiring the Park,” said Burke. “This extraordinary wave pool and its enormous capacity puts our water park on par with the best in the country and lines up perfectly with whom we are and what we offer – two great parks in one showcasing quality, close-to-home family entertainment at an affordable price.”

Included in the expansion are new restrooms, changing rooms and ten gigantic 20’ shade structures installed throughout the expansion to provide comforting shade on those super sunny summer days. Two major food service facilities are being expanded to offer popular fare and to drastically increase speed of service. The Park is also introducing its first Tiki Bar, offering adult beverages and big screen television viewing. And new cabanas, getting installed atop the famous cylindrical Cove Restaurant, will offer Guests shade, comfort and exclusive privacy while overlooking the frolicking fun at Big Wave Bay or the beauty of sparkling Clementon Lake.

“The addition of Big Wave Bay marks the fifth, and most sensational, major attraction introduced at Clementon Park and Splash World in the last five years,”, said David Dorman, the Park’s General Manager. “The changes have been truly transformational. If a family has not been here before, or not visited in a while, they will be wowed by improvements.”

Now residents living in the South Jersey/Philadelphia area will have their very own “swim club” right in their own back yard and the best way to enjoy it all summer long is with a Clementon Park and Splash World season pass, now just $54.99 each, plus tax. Now and for a limited time only go to and purchase four (4) season passes and get a season-long parking pass FREE!
