Park owner Doug Waterbury said all of the park's 25 rides and attractions should be ready for action today. The village also will be celebrating Memorial Day weekend with a community-wide luau party that starts Saturday with a pig roast at Harpoon Eddie's and concludes with fireworks on the beach Sunday night. "Lots of folks were sad when we weren't open at this time last year, so we listened closely and decided to take another stab at it," Waterbury said. Despite poor attendance prior to the Fourth of July in years past, the park will remain open just on weekends until June 24, and then switch to a Wednesday to Sunday schedule, he said. "As long as the weather cooperates it should be good," he said. Waterbury, who heads Empire Attractions LLC, pushed back the opening of the park to June 28 last year in order to bring it more in line with the operational calendar of the company's other attractions. Santa's Workshop in the Adirondacks and The Sterling Renaissance Festival, for example, open closer to July 4 to maximize profits. The opening was then delayed a second time, to just before the Fourth of July, when some of the park's rides weren't ready in time. This year, the park is looking to make improvements. Waterbury said a new six-person gyroscope ride will be added at some point this season, and many cosmetic upgrades will be made throughout the facility. More themed weekends also are in the works. As was the case last year, the historic Yesterday's Royal restaurant, which was deemed unsafe by the village in March of 2014 because of a structural problem with an exterior wall, will remain closed. Waterbury said the estimated $5,000 to $10,000 repair will not be made until he can find a partner to help manage and run the eatery. "We're not ready to move forward with it yet," Waterbury said.

Doug Waterbury, owner of Empire Attractions, said the decision to delay the opening was an effort to improve the efficiency of the businesses, and to also bring its operational calendar more in line with its other attractions such as Santas Workshop in the Adirondacks and The Sterling Renaissance Festival. Both are scheduled to open in early July. He said the new opening date is designed to be timed with the end of the school year, which is when most people are able to travel. And that while opening on Memorial Day weekend does provide a spike, the weeks leading up to the Fourth of July generally dont generate much business. These types of properties are very costly to operate but I am committed to making it work, said Waterbury, who purchased the park in 2007 and said he has no plans of closing or selling it. I understand that change is hard and you are not always going to please everyone, but we know what we are doing. Im talking the steps to ensure that this will be around for the next 100 years. Waterbury said he is in the process of repairing an exterior wall at Yesterdays Royal that must be repaired before it can reopen. The building was deemed an unsafe structure by the village in March.

Sylvan Beach Mayor Gregory Horan said his office is doing everything it can to work with Waterbury to get the park ready, and plans to meet with him later this month to review his plans.
